Know the exact motherboard model? IDE hard drive? Need to use SATA driver files on a floppy to boot it? Been in BIOS and tried IDE compatible for SATA?
So i have tried the following.
Switching SATA ports.
Switching SATA power/data cables
switching from ide to achi
Tried a different hardrive with different cords and differend ports.
The problem I am having in more detail.
I came home from work and noticed that my computer had been powered down abruptly and since then its acting like it cant read my hardrive. I tried using windows 7 install disk to reformat the hardrive and noticed its not even showing up as a hardrive for me to format.
