SATA drive not detected by BIOS

Have you checked the MB manual?? So much for backward compatibility So if you’ve just upgraded your Asus motherboard with a big, fat Seagate hard drive and the BIOS doesn’t recognise it – try this. Gordon Edit; I just found something in the Seagate installation guide that may explain the difference we are seeing concerning the speed jumper. Also from the writer of this blog Yea, I’ve heard some more problems. I installed it in my computer, hooked up the sata power, and data cable, and turned on my computer.


As we know now there was no way it could work.

Time for a new hard drive. I don’t know if has something to do with the bios, the jumper, or the tools I’ve used to format it. I was not aware that there was such a thing as SATA speed autonegotiation, so I have learned something new today.
