I keep forgetting the fix for it however as I don't have any AMD systems myself. lol
Possibly it is that you have to load the AHCI SATA drivers first before the drive is detected? Then refresh the drive list and it may show then. Also you can try it for RAID mode.
Yea, I need a lot of that to keep AMD away from me. biggrin.gif

I'd wish they would be more like AMD tho. Have more 6Gb/s SATA ports and CPU compatibility. frown.gif

Did you get this working?

If not, PLEASE check and make sure the connections are secure, the cables aren't bent up at all. Also, has the drive ever had anything on it? I had this issue with an employees laptop when I had to wipe his drive because of a boot virus. Only way I found to do it was to put it in IDE mode & do a Windows XP Pro SP2 partial install (ONLY to format it). Once it was formatted by Windows XP, I put the W7 disc in, and it was right there as "unallocated space". It seems that when I formatted it from my usb tool, it still had a drive letter associated with it. Some say a few SSD brands come with preinstalled drivers, or the like, thus not being able to be read by the mobo that is incompatible with those preloaded items. Let us know if you find a solution, or decide to RMA. Try Sean's idea to load the correct drivers by USB before you connect the drive. Once you do that, refresh the page & see if it helps.

i finally figured it out! i tried correctly loading the drivers and that didnt help..

i found a solution that you can bring up the console during the win 7 installation, and "clean" your hard drive. after a reboot and retry of the installation, it finally shows up and able to be installed.

i have no idea why the hard drive had to be cleaned in the first place as it was a brand new drive... but that is what solved it. thanks for everyone's input! (thank god i didnt have to RMA anything and my dad is pretty stoked with his new desktop)

gah wasted all day figuring this out..

..and the reason it never shows up in the bios is because the AHCI drivers loads after the part where you can enter the bios. so when you are in the bios itself, it won't show anything that all... sooo weird.

For future reference, keep a copy of your device driver .ini file for your device on a USB Flash Stick, so upon your windows reinstall, you have it when needed, to bypass work post installation. Installing it during the process eliminates the need to get a more recent update of the device after installing a new copy of Windows, and will only do so in the result that it's part of registered Windows endorsed device drivers in need of an important or urgent update.

That is weird that it doesn't show at all in the BIOS, but glad it shows up after the BIOS. smile.gif

The drive had no partition data on it. Did you only do clean? Or did you create a partition on it as well?
