HD Issue on Optiplex 3010 - New Referb
 
Computer:
Dell Optiplex 3010 - i5-3470 - 8 gig

Problem: This new refurb 3010 will not see HD's from old computer that I had, that the MB went out on.

Old computer: "My Build" - ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 - i3 - 8gig

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a 1tb and a 500gig HD that was from the Asrock build.

The 1tb HD that I have has lots of movies on it that I would like to have access to.

I have tried multiple data cables.
I have tried both available SATA ports on the MB.

The BIOS does not see them as well as Windows 10 Pro.
Note - Old computer had Win Home on it.

I have uploaded some pics for you guys/gals to review. Bios, MB and HD.

In the pics, the black cable is that one going to the 1gig HD.

Thank you for your help,
John

PS - should the HD have any jumpers on it?

Hi, Thanks for posting in the forum.

What version of windows was on both computers?


Also it looks like you have the bios settings set for ATA mode in image 5.
Try setting that to AHCI as that is the default, and ATA Mode is for legacy settings.

I would try that first and then maybe just plug in the Disk drive and your boot hdd and after it boots then add the 1tb drive.

You don't need to mess with any jumpers.

Hey Trent...

Thanks for the reply.

Over the years I have built hundreds of computers. All the way back to the first 8 bit XT desktop computers.

I have NEVER had (that I remember) a BIOS that required you to set what SADA ports (since they came out with them) you wanted the BIOS to use, Until this one. How stupid it is that Dell did not code a BIOS that automatically sensed what HD's where hooked up.

Anyway, that's my gripe and I'm sticking to it.

Checked the ticker box for SADA 3 and 4 and all is well now.

Thank you again,
John
