I'm trying to install a Western Digital internal hard drive (WD2002FAEX) and connect it to my ASUS P8Z77-V LX motherboard, but it won't show up in the BIOS. The BIOS lists the connector as "empty." The hard drive works; I just tested it in a different computer minutes before attempting the installation. The system boots off an Intel SSD, and that's the only other drive installed. The SATA cable and the power cable are both connected. I have the SATA cable attached to the motherboard connector labeled SATA6G_2. (page 2-2 in the motherboard manual) The SSD drive is connected to the connector labeled SATA6G_1.
Do I have the SATA cable attached to the correct connector? Do I need to mess around with jumpers or anything else on the drive or the motherboard? Am I missing something else obvious?
