Rig wont detect 3rd storage device

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN,


I just got a new SSD . I installed it and it did not show up. So i disconnected my storage HDD and connected the data cable on the SSD. Okay so now both my SSDs are detected and work fine.

I got a new cable for the HDD and connected and it still does NOT show up. It seems like I can only connected 2 storage devices at a time. Am I missing something here? I would REALLY appreciate the help.

Thanks in advance.






Edit:Problem fixed, but my read speeds are extremely slow! halve when the problem was fixed.

Edit #2: all is well and working excellent. THanks for help! rep for all that helped.

Bad SATA port? Maybe the other (third) SATA port is on a separate controller and it needs to be turned on in the BIOS.

Step 1, check the BIOS to see if it appears there.

Windows should installed with only your SSD only hooked up
and after windows is installed are loaded then you can install 2nd hard drive...
Just reinstall windows with SSD and you should be fine...

This is Quote from Sean's How to Guide...

"Disconnect all the drives but the one you are installing to. You will reconnect them in step 5 of "System Setup after Installation." This is to prevent the installer from installing the Windows 7 boot partition on another drive in the system and so you don't accidentally format or delete data on the wrong drive."

windows was already installed. I was simply trying to add a 3rd drive. but I believe it is the port because when i switched them around now the HDD does not show up when it was working fine and the SSD works now when it did not.

The drive does not show there or BIOS, so I am going to try different sata ports and see what works. Hopefully it is a bad sata port.
