hard drive wont show up in bios/windows
Posted 17 January 2012 - 04:19 PM
The second hdd is a laptop hdd from hitachi. model: HTS543216L9A300
The hdd had worked fine for over a month with no problems at all, until I installed the 64 bit OS.
Please help me if you can.

Go into the bios, look at any settings
Do you see one to go from AHCE to IDE?
Try setting to IDE
What do you have set?

I have a place in my bios that shows me my main hdd, its under ide channel 0 master, and my second hdd should be under ide channel 1 master I think...but its not there.

Is it a SATA or PATA drive?
Can you pull it out of the computer and try it on another and see if it's detected?

I have no other computer to test it with here unfortunately.

Besides that method, we're just guessing
The harddrive may be defective otherwise
