Boot disk won't see my SSD

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I recently got a new motherboard in hopes that it would improve the speed of my ssd among other things. Anyway, in the bios my ssd is seen just fine, but when I get into the windows 7 boot disk, my ssd is nowhere to be seen. My 500gb hard drive shows up just fine though, but as that's not where I want my os, I'm not wanting to install it and remove all the stuff that's currently on there. Any ideas?

My motherboard is a Jetway Hummer HZ03-GT-LF
My ssd is an ADATA S599 64gb model

(my sig rig specs are a tad out of date as I haven't gotten around to updating it because of this issue)

Also, most of the time the boot disk hangs at the Starting Windows screen if that helps.

Disable C1E - happened to me on 2 diff. mobos.
Set your RAM speed, timings and volt. manually. You can raise your RAM volt @ stock volt. + 0.05V.

About your SSD, might be bad or some BIOS settings, I dont know.

Have you tried updating the new MBs BIOS?
Also check and see if your board requires special boot time drivers (usually only for RAID but you never know)

Failing that I would install only the SSD and your DVD-ROM. (make sure AHCI is turned on in BIOS) Throw in your Win7 install disc and see if you can start the install. (might as well finish installing Win7 if it takes, as it will only take a few minutes)

I don't think the SSD is bad as it was working this morning perfectly fine (although slow) on my older motherboard.

Ugh... ok. It's a bad cable. Thank goodness for spares.
