Question about MSI PM8M-V Motherboard
FIrst off, make sure that the sata cable is firmly seated on the drive and the board. When you turn on the computer listen for the drive to spin up. If you don't hear the drive try another sata port, and listen again. If they doesn't spin up, try another sata cable, listen for spin up again. If you don't get the drive to spin up, then you most likely have a bad drive.
There is one more thing you can do each time you are listening for spin up, is when the computer boots to bios, each time, you can go into bios and manually force the information from the drive to Bios. Sometimes Bios isn't always the most stable, especially since that board is rather dated.
Last effort would be to go and try another drive that you know works, and get the board to boot to dos, and upgrade the bios, it could be that they have never been updataed to patch some of the bios error handling sata hard drives. You can get those on the MSI website.
