Seagate ST1000DX001 3.5 inch 1TB Hybrid Internal Solid State Drive
HITACHI 0J22423 Travelstar 7K1000 1TB 2.5 inch Hard Drive - SATA 6Gb/s 7200rpm 32MB Buffer
My intention was to put a fresh install of windows 7 onto the Seagate Hdd. But windows dose not detect it. The Hitachi hdd is working perfectly. I had a look at my BIOS, and it is not detected there either. I’ve tried changing the Sata config settings with no luck. I tried plugging the Seagate hdd in on its own, in case of some weird voltage issue, with still no luck. I’ve used different sockets on the motherboard, and of course made sure the connections are ok. I have also tried using different cables, but still the Seagate hdd is not recognised.
My motherboard is a Asus P8H61-MLE/USB3
Am I missing something of do you think I have just got a faulty hard drive?
