SATA drive issues on ASUS M5A99X EVO

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Alright I am having a interesting issue with one of my SATA drives on the ASUS M5A99X EVO.

I have two drives plugged into the white 6gb/s SATA controller (AMD Southbridge powered):

1) Vertex 2 60gb - works fine, 7.5 in WEI, Windows 7 x64 install
2) Samsung SpinPoint 1tb - recognized in UEFI BIOS, nothing in windows, only trace I could find was in HWMonitor where it showed up.

UEFI BIOS:
110807054343.png

HWMonitor:

I tried switching ports 5-6 to IDE mode and plugging the HDD in...windows installed drivers and nothing. Now it doesn't even show up in HWMonitor. All external drives work fine, and the optical drive is plugged into the same controller and it is working nicely as well.

Ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yes. Though the fact that it is being reported by both HWMonitor and the BIOS makes me think that it is working.

Go into CONTROL PANEL.
Open Administrative Tools.
Open COMPUTER MANAGEMENT.
Click on DISK MANAGEMENT.
And Set the partition then format the HDD.

I was having a similar problem, and this is the advice I received in my thread about the lesser M5A97 EVO. Might work for you...

In the advanced/SATA/Southbridge settings you can set inputs 1-4 as one type(SATA) and then 5-6 as another (IDE).Plug your problem drive in as IDE and see if this makes the OS "see" your drive.

Tried this already, second paragraph of first post. My issue was mainly that I didn't realize that the drive had not been formatted. doh.gif

I'm glad it works for you now. I had the same problem when I went the win 7 when I added a new HDD.
