Ok, so I get my build up and running on Friday and everything was working great. I have two drives, a 256GB SDD connected via SATA 3(which is the boot drive.) and a 1 TB 7200RPM connected via SATA 2. Last night my 1 TB just disappeared after I rebooted.

So I rebooted maybe 2 times and each time my 1 TB doesn't show up. Than I trying rebooting one more time and my computer wouldn't boot because it couldn't find a bootable drive.

So I go into the BIOS and noticed that it now sees the 1 TB drive(which disappeared first.) but doesn't show the 256GB SSD. So these are the steps I took:

  • Disconnected 1 TB drive(took out power and SATA cable from 1 TB drive.), but BIOS still doesn't see SSD drive.
  • Reverse cables(took 1 TB drive cables and power and connected it to SSD and took SSD and connected it to 1 TB drive.), but it still only sees the 1 TB drive.

So now this makes me think the SSD died after 2 days. However, what has me worried is the 1 TB drive first disappeared before the SSD disappeared and didn't show up until after the SSD disappeared.

So, should I be worried?

Ok, so I updated the BIOS to the newest version and both drives are showing. So I assume this was a bug in the BIOS? –  Michael Dec 30 '12 at 22:35
    
You should post that as your answer and accept. This would help reduce up the unansered questions link on SU.;) –  Carl B Mar 16 '13 at 12:31
