I've found a number of issues very similar to this, but nothing specific.

 

I recently had a Spiceworks server begin crashing, followed by delivery of "Drive Not Found" error during POST. If I disconnect and reconnect the SATA cable, PC boot just fine, but looses connection again within a day or two. Again, reco9nnect cable, everything works swimmingly.

 

I have cleared CMOS, tried with seperate cable/SATA port on mobo and problem persists. Ran drive health tests and no red flags, so I am assuming it is a motherboard issue. Just figured I'd throw it out there to see if anyone has any bits of genius for me. Thanks!

I should note, I just ran a Speedfan and the GPU temps are a bit high, but other than that I don't see any issues.

That board only supports SATA 1.0 and 2.0 .. Although the standards are supposed to be backwards compatible .. I am betting you are running into a speed conflict because SSD's are so much faster than spinners.  The drive says it is capable of SATA 3 but is only running at SATA2.  I wonder if you can go into the bios and if it is set to AUTO set it to SATA2.  My best suggestion is... get a better board... LOL sorry ..

I'll check it out. It's a pretty old system and the BIOS settings are prettty limited. What you said makes absolute sense. I would'nt be surprised if it was the board. Get back to you in a bit.
