Hello everyone,
I am in dire need of help/guidance. I've been building a PC and I have an Asus Sabertooth 990fx + FX8120. I am having a major issue: it cannot see any hard drives I install, in any of the SATA ports, in any mode. Has anyone ever had this kind of issue and found a solution? I've switched the SATA cables, I tried all the SATA ports, I reset CMOS by both pulling out the battery and moving the jumper. Anything I've tried has failed so far. I even put both HDDs (a corsair SSD and a Seagate Barracuda) on my other build to check if they were faulty but they are 100% fine. I am running out of ideas. Every time I boot it just says "no drives found" and they don't show up in the BIOS either. If I boot from a bootable usb, I am able to go to the Win 8.1 installation but when it's time to install the files it cannot find any drives to install to. I really hope someone can help me out.

idont know if you tried this or not because your post doesnt say but have you tested the sata cables i know when i got my board i had one bad sata 6gb cable i swaped it out for a sata 3gb cable and the drive was detected after that
post #6415 of 10135
Hello, and thanks for the replies. Yes, I am at stock speed and I tried 3 different SATA cables. I even tried the same cable on my other PC and it worked. I was able to initialize and use the same drive on my other PC with no issues.

Furthermore, I even just updated the BIOS to the latest version but that didn't work either.
post #6416 of 10135
how long ago did you get the board

ps i just remembered something in the bios somewhere there is a setting to switch drive settings from ahci mode to ide mode if you have it set one way and the drives where installed using the other it can cause problems with them being detected

I got the mobo from a friend who has used it for a while with no issues. Will probably get back to him tomorrow to see if he knows of any issues. AFAIK he's been using it without problems for a while now. However, I just managed to get it to recognize an SSD on the SATA 3 Gb/S instead of the good SATA3 ports. I installed Win 8.1 Pro and the PC now boots. Once I run all the updates, I will try to switch to the SATA3 ports. It would be incredibly lame to use the old SATA ports on such a nice motherboard.

I would advise to check where the main power cable goes into the motherboard. I have one of these boards and it was faulty where the plug goes into the motherboard. try another PSU or, before you try that, take the main power plug out, clean out the socket where the main power goes (old soft toothbrush or a can of compressed air, not too hard though) and make sure there are no burnt terminals in the PSU plug. Then, fiddle about with the plug a bit and make sure that it is sitting properly into the socket.

AHCI vs IDE mode I'd bet. Or the sata controller is busted.

I will try this when I get back home, at work at the moment.
Also, I tried both IDE and AHCI modes. For whatever reason last night it did recognize my SSD in one of the slower ports (3 Gb/s) and I was able to install Win 8.1 and it boots. I will need to check if I can get it to work on the faster sata ports now. I am also leaning towards a busted sata controller or similar.
