post #2851 of 3170
Hoping I can find some help here with my ASrock z77 Extreme 4 board before I have to go through an attempt at RMAing a hard drive.

Was running a WD 640GB HDD in this machine previously, and all was fine, but yesterday I took the plunge and upgraded to an SSD (samsung 256GB), and it's beautiful. Windows boots before I can even grab a drink (and the drinks are behind my chair).

The issue is with the 1TB WD HDD I got as well. I connected it in hopes of having it boot and using it for storage, but the uefi and windows doesn't even recognize it's their.

I've tried different sata cables, and different ports (the sata 2 and the sata 3, this is a sata 3 HDD though) and nothing registers. I feel a slight vibration from the drive, so it seems to be getting power. The storage manager doesn't show any unallocated memory either. I also tried switching out of AHCI and putting it into IDE on the sata controller.

Is there something I'm overlooking? Or need to do on top of all this?

Thanks in advance!

Hey guys... I've got a question for you all...perhaps it may seem like a no-brainer for some..but, I'm only trying to do what makes the most sense... I'm going to be giving some of my parts to a relative for a build..so, I need to pick up some new hardware.. I have the option of getting an Asrock Z77 OC Formula BNIB for about 80 bucks... then I could pick up a 3570k and call it a day...but with the release of haswell looming...Do I just get the cpu and board when it releases?

I have to get rid of my stuff fairly soon..so, I definitely need to get one or the other.. IO seen the Z87 OC formula and it looks terrific, though pretty much similar (aesthetics) and feature wise.. Do I pay for a 4670k and a z87 oc formula? or the Z77 counterpart? I reralize I would be saving quite a bit of cash with the z87 path...but, I'm one of "those guys" that have to have the new stuff... That, and the support I'm sure z87 will have.. So, any thoughts? Thanks in advance smile.gif

Have you checked in disk manager to see what that says? If you type disk manager into the windows search box you will see "create and format partitions" appear as a choice. Go into there and see if the drive is there. You may just need to change a setting.

As I said before, the storage manager (or disk manager, sorry, wrong wording), doesn't show any un-allocated information, and there is no drive to "create and format partitions".I tried connecting to the ASmedia sata port, as well as the intel, and even the sata2 ports, still nothing sadly.

The only drive it shows is the solid state, and it's fully allocated. When I go into my device manager it doesn't even show up there, again, only the solid state.

Ultra fast is for Windows 8 only. What OS do you have?

Does anyone here know what port I should be using on the Z77 1155 Extreme4 MB for the eSATA port on the front of a Cooler Master Storm Scout case? I know there has to be a port that they recommend that you use, but I'll be damned if I can find it in ASRocks Manual.

Isn't it just a SATA 3?
As in, the front eSATA header should lead to a SATA 3, and that's what goes into the Extreme4.

That's usually the case with eSATA.

Edit: Yep, it's SATA.

I used the sata 2 ports for the front of my 932. There aren't many if any external drives that can saturate that anyways. Correct me if you have one.
