New SSD shows up at BIOS but not at Disk management.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I just bought new SSD today and installed it but I can't see it at the Disk management. I already have a 60GB SSD and a 1TB HDD(+ now the 240GB SSD) which are working just fine.
I can see it at BIOS thought, what I'm doing wrong? thinking.gif
The SSD is PNY Xlr8 240GB by the way.

Can you post a screenshot of the disk management window?

Did you want something more specific?

What happens when you scroll down in the bottom box - there is something else on that list in your screenshot. I don't think the drive will appear in the top until you initialize it, and it might be hiding at the bottom of that lower list.

There is just CD-ROM 0 and 1.

It is most likely a BIOS setting which is preventing it from being detected in Windows. I would reset CMOS and reboot with defaults. Let us know if that clears it up.

Is the drive formatted NTFS? probably not. you will have to keep it connected via sata, reboot the machine with a windows install CD, and when you are at the part of the install where you pick the drive that windows goes onto, you simply format the drive there, without installing windows on it. then reboot the machine back into your existing windows installation and youre good to go. you may still have to assign the newly formatted drive a letter in disk management.

try changing the sata port it is plugged into. See if you can see it in diskpart in windows. If so you can format it there.

Ok, I messed up and mistaked the dvd player to the SSD. So I can't see the SSD at BIOS and disk management.
The problem must be at my wiring right?
(at BIOS I can see 1,2,3,4,5 and 6 SATA ports and 1,2 and 4 are taken, 1st is the 60GB SSD, 2nd is the HDD and 4th is of course the dvd player.(I was tired and thought 4th was the ssd))redface.gif
