when your bios setting is wrong, you just have to set it to default by unplug it and then plug it again..and done, your bios is set to default have you try change your data cable?it maybe damage or could posibly your harddrive is damaged, you can try a simple experiment, try it to another computer, or try the motherboard with another harddrive....if its OK, then you have no problem with your harddrive......and perhaps your motherboard are damaged...
Sort of obvious (judging by the stuff you tried) but, Did you try going into the BIOS setup and making sure the hard disk is the first boot device? (if its lower than something else, say a windows hard disk, it'll load windows instead, etc.) If not something is wrong with your linux boot file, and the BIOS can't read/understand it, try reloading linux onto the hard disk.
You must enter setup at boot and select the CD/DVD as first boot. Then ensure that the BIOS settings have SATA enabled. When CD/DVD is first boot watch the screen for 'press any key to boot from cd' message is displayed. The boot screen will say how to enter setup. Typical buttons are F2, Delete, F1, F10 -you did not say which manufacturer. OEM trumps mobo maker with BIOS setup.
Hi Eamon, download Samsungs drive setup utility, tools from Samsungs web site. Creat a bootable floppy drive setup disk or a CD bootable disk. http://www.samsung.com/global/business/hdd/support/utilities/ES_Tool.html
Enable the SMART function using the setup software.
If you are going to use the Samsung drive as the primary master drive as the new C:\ you will need to enter the bios & set the Hard Disk Boot Priority, page 30 in you're manual to see the Samsung drive.
Connect only the Samsung into the system. Boot the system & use Samsung's software to setup the drive & format.
Disconnect any other hard disk drives that may have windows installed in it.
Check the SATA/RAID controller setting.
It could have been set to [Disabled]
Refer to your user?s manual for a detailed description on how to enable the onboard SATA/RAID controller by adjusting the jumper or BIOS settings.
