Dell T5500 not recognising additional hard drive

  Aristocatman 21:26 12 Jan 2015

I have a second user Dell T5500 workstation a recent purchase. As I had a spare 1000gB hard drive I installed it in the spare bay& connected to SATA 1 cables at the location. Problem is drive is not detected. I ran the Dell website diagnostic all clear but drive not detected. Operating system is Windows 7 pro.Can't find any means of detecting disk it is a working OK disk, removed it from a caddy it was detected when in the caddy via USB. Bit stumped here drive is not essential but would be useful as extra storage.

Go into Bios setup and change the setting for SATA 1 port so that BIOS can detect the Harddrive connected. (I had same problem on my Dell)
