2 new drives on SATA III question.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just installed my Sammy 830, and a 2 TB WD normal HDD sata III ( both are ), and I can't get at least the 2 TB HDD to show up. I see them when I boot right after the bios screen, so I know they are hooked up, but in Windows itself I cannot see them. Never had a SATA 3 drive before.

I searched around and I found that you need to change IDE to AHCI. I did this but when I would boot to the Windows loading screen it would BSOD on me. I am unsure of why this is. I am re-installing Windows 7 on my SSD tomorrow, but today I would like to use the new 2 TB WD to back up some information to format my current HDD. How can I detect my Sata III drives then?


Thanks, probably an easy question to answer ( I hope ).

have you formated and partitioned it yet? It will not show up until you do.

Set AHCI mode in Bios, Install Win7 on SSD. After Win7 installation hook up the 2TB WD drive.

^ that is the ideal way with SSD's so i've heard.

Also make sure the 2TB drive is formatted, so it can be seen via windows.

Just type "Disk Management" into your start menu and initialize the drive there. Then create a new "Simple Volume" on it.

Also, this thread might save you a reinstall:
