Question about ASUS M2N-E SLI (M2N-E SLI GREEN) Motherboard
I recently bought a sata drive, but when I tried to install it along with a pre-existing ide drive, it doesn't seem like it's being seen by my motherboard (asus m2n-e sli) at all. Thinking that this had something to do with the IDE drive, I unplugged it and tried to install Windows afresh on the sata drive, but it said something along the lines of no harddrive was found.
I took at look at the BIOS main menu (screen in pg 4-15 in the manual), and the sata drive isn't listed there either, whether if I had it plugged in by itself or with the IDE drive.
I'd really appreciate it if anyone had some ideas that might help me.
On some older models of mother boards, you cannot use the SATA drive as a main start-up drive. You can only use a SATA drive as a data drive if this is your case.
To verify this, re-install the IDE start-up drive. When the computer starts, verify that you can have access to the SATA drive as a second drive.
I have this issue with a few computers at our facility.
