I have a new SATA HDD for my ASUS G73JH Laptop. This is simply a bigger HDD(2TB) than the one before and it's new and unsused. Windows 7 Ultimate runs on a second HDD (SSD). The new SATA HDD is not recognized in BIOS and also not in Windows Partition Manager.
But when I boot with the tool Partition Wizard, then I can explore the new disk, format it, test it, whatever. This HDD is a SATAIII NTFS formatted MBR disk (not GPT). I also rebuilt the boot record already, updated my BIOS and of course all my drivers in Windows 7.
My system info:
- Asus G73JH Laptop
- 128GB Samsung SSD
- 2TB Samsung Spinpoint M9T SATA III HDD (here's the problem)
- 500GB Seagate SATA (that is the one I had before the new Samsung HDD)
Any idea on how I can make the new HDD usable in Windows 7?
