With the 1TB HDD disconnected, the MoBo doesn't acknowledge the 2TB HDD either.
I reversed the connections to the MoBo and still, the MoBo won't acknowledge the 2TB HDD.
I'm at a lost at this point.
To me, it seems that even though the OS is installed on the 2TB there is something on...
Master, Slave, Cable Select, and no jumper at all gives me the same results.
I'm half way tempted to disconnect the 1TB HDD so that the BIOS quits defaulting to it when I connect this third HDD just to see what happens.
When I add the third HDD in to the mix (the one I'm wanting to retrieve data from) for some unknown reason, my BIOS drops the 2TB HDD (Boot drive) from the list. Though if I unhook/unplug the third HDD, the 2TB reappears.....even though I'm going into a different SATA port than the other HDD's.
In SATA 1 I have my 1TB HDD which is the drive I have Win 7 Ultimate installed on.
In SATA 2 I have my 2TB HDD which I use mostly for storage
In SATA 4 I have my DVD-Rom.
Why my boot sequence doesn't list my 1TB HDD, is beyond me.
Unless I misread something.....Though I am double checking...
With the questionable hdd connected, the boot sequence in BIOS doesn't acknowledge the hdd.
It goes in the order of my 2GB hdd, DVD-ROM, then "accessories" which I'm assuming is referring to usb devices.
Mods, if you feel that this thread is more of a "Windows" issue, please feel free to move this thread.
Here last year I did my second build because I was having "boot" issues. Wasn't certain what exactly the problem was at the time. But something some how screwed up the boot sequence in...
As you stated
Well, sure enough, mine was adjustable by .01 increments.
And after raising the voltage from what was apparently factory default (1.25) to what the RAM I installed requires (1.65), Windows now shows I'm running 6GB of RAM.
After figuring out that I was installing the RAM in the wrong DIMM sockets, Everything has went smoothly..........so far. I was going to install the 32bit version, but something in my mind said to install the 64bit version of Windows 7 Ultimate. Though looking at the system info. there is no...
I'm looking at external enclosures, since the MoBo in the new system I built is strictly SATA. And one of the HHD's from the previous system is IDE. I'm looking for one just to strictly transfer data (docs, pics, etc.) from the IDE drive over in to one of the two SATA's I have.
After reading the manual again....there is a footnote at the bottom of the page stating "Due to Intel CPU spec definition, the system will not boot if only one DIMM is installed in DIMM slot A2, B2, or C2. Follow the instructions above for recommended memory configuration." Which they clearly...
Is it possible to have a series of dimm sockets that are faulty?
I moved "everything" back to how I had it when I done my first attempt out of the case. All I done was move the RAM over from the "brown" dimm sockets, to the "white" dimm sockets. And ironically it posts.
**Now after leaving...
