hdd not being read by new mobo

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
ok heres the problem, we bought 2 of 890gx pro3 asrock boards both work. i have 2 raptors 1 had an os on it the other didnt , the one with the os on it (from an asos board) booted up just fine into windows with the occasional bsod here and there... the one that doesnt have the os on it doesnt want to be read by the windows 7 install , i keep pointing to the drivers but it still wont read the hdd, what do i do to make it read the goddamn raptor? the raptor is wd740gd
this is really ticking me off.... another problem is that the working os keeps rejecting my gts250 as in i have to use the onboard vga
here someone els has the same problem

Already installed OS doesn't handle very well major hardware changes (understand, mobo). IF it is an option, it's best to reinstall.

Is the ghost HDD recognized by BIOS?

I had this issue before in the past. One test is to either convert your DVI to VGA and use the VGA hookup on your monitor (just to test), or if you have a VGA out port on the card, just use it instead. If it dose post bios. Then it's something with the type of DVI cable you are using. DVI-I vs DVI-D. I had this issue with my old cards, swapped out cable and it showed post each time.

So try VGA first, either with a converter or if you have VGA out on that card.

Note that the cable worked with another card and mobo, but for some reason did not for the one I was working on at the time. May not be same issue, but i would give it a go because it sounds alot like what i remember seeing.

Good luck!
