SSD not detected

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I have recently purchased a new mobo ( Gigabyte Z77X-D3H ) and everything went well, installed windows 7 and such. Started updating BIOS then suddenly my system would BSOD. I have tried to reformat my system, but it would tell me in the windows installation page that it doesnt detect my SSD. I have tried changing the SATA cable to different Slots ( SATA III port 0 , port 1, SATA II etc etc. ) nothing would work. Now I am currently running on my raptor instead and it works fine. Could this mean that my SSD is dead?? Or am I doing something wrong here. Sorry I am not too great with computers.

Thanks in advance

It seem like it is dead. Do you mean it get seen in the bios but not in windows? Is it on AHCI mode?

I don't think it is dead.

When you flash your BIOS all your settings get reset. You need to make sure your SATA mode was the same as when before the flash. aka, ide,ahci, or raid mode.

Try to see if you see the SSD in IDE mode.

You may have to go into diskpart to see the SSD now as well.

Situations like this are one reason I like to have a USB docking station for hard drives. It's a nice way to keep old hard drives useful, handy for formatting and imaging, and very handy for testing to see if a drive still works.

Sorry, like I said I am quite new to computers but what I remember is, I had my BIOS set at AHCI on my old motherboard for the SSD. Now that I changed my system, I checked the BIOS it was automatically set at AHCI for me.

Can you test the drive in another PC?

It could just be an incompatibility with the new BIOS.
