HD's not being recognized by new Mobo

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just upgraded to a 3570k and a Biostar TZ77A board. Install went well, until it came time to install windows. In my old setup I had two 160gb drives in Raid 0 and a 1TB drive.

In the bios all 3 of my HD's are listed, when installing windows, 1 160gb HD is recognized and the 1 TB drive is also found. Then when it comes to "my computer" in Windows Both 160's are able to be found but not the 1 TB drive.

At this point I'm only trying to get the 2 160's into raid so I can reinstall windows. I tried reformatting the 1 160 that I didn't have an OS on and it still doesn't show up when installing Windows. Out of ideas atm, unless some of you think I could have bad Sata ports on the mobo.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

what ports do you have the drives connected to? Why not unplug the 1tb drive, as this is not being used for windows, and figure out with just the two 160's you want to raid. Obviously, they both should be connected to either the 2 sata3 ports, or 2/4 of the sata2 ports....

I've got the 2 160s hooked up to sata2 ports. I'll unplug the TB drive, just not sure what to try next.
