My dell optiplex gx520 has detected sata hdd on bios but cannot boot. i have been compare the hdd to another dell cpu and its work.


the reason why windows won't reconize it as a boot drive is because you have to format the harddrive to NTFS. You have to connect it as a secondary drive on another machine and format it. To do this you have to
click on start, right click on 'computer' and click on 'manage'. Once on 'computer management' click on 'disk management' and select the disk you want to format, right click on it can click 'format'.
Hope this helps.

first try installing one and go to your bios and set your bios to default . save you changes and exit.
also in my computer look and see if it appears there

Could be a dirty sensor. Get a can of air and try to blow it out. Might need to try that a couple of times. Try reloading the drivers for the cd. They sometimes get corrupted.
