Question about Computers & Internet
I bought a new HDD today, I have installed it correctly. The BIOS can't find it in the standard CMOS setup but in the advanced setup it is the 3rd boot device and in features setup onboard SATA-IDE controller is enabled.
Can you help me please?
You dont mention which type of harddisk you have. if it is SATA or IDE.
you must remember that IDE runs first than SATA so you have to let the setup your system to activate the SATA. check your computer motherboard manual. once you fix this, your windows will see your new harddrive.

What type of HDD is your new one? SATA, IDE?
Do you have any USB disk devices plugged in to your system? USB hard drive or flash stick or other SD cards? Remove them and try rebooting again. These can sometimes take precedence over your HDD and your system will not boot.
