RAID-1 On Intel SSD 180GB, additional Seagate Constellation not working

Hi,

I just build my new PC based on this MoBo

F/W 1302 is on the MoBo

Created an RAID-1 with my Intel SSD 180GB drives. Connected to port 1-2
Installed windows 8.1, everything ok.

Trying to connect and get my brand new Seagate Constellation 3TB drive listed/recognized by the MoBo. NO LUCK.
The disks does not spin up or shows up as an disk in the BIOS.

Tried,

Various SATA Ports, E1-E2 etc. Port 3-4 etc.
Various SATA cables both power and data.
Tried disconnecting the two Intel SSD drives and using those cables in those ports used by the Intel SSD drives.

The disk just won´t show up in the bios as the Intel SSD will.

I have not yet tested the Seagate disks in another computer yet.

Ideas?

Cheer!

Hi again,

The disk is not showing up in another PC i got, same thing.
Can it be the disk model itself? I mean Seagate Constellation is an Enterprise disk, can it be something strange when attaching to a desktop?

Hi himi-asus, If the drive is not being detected in your bios, the drive has gone bad. And since you tried it in another pc and still does not show up, that pretty much confirms it's bad.

Hi, Normaly I would agree for 100% but two of them? Both new?

I see the Seagate constellation supports sata 6 GB/s. Are you plugging it into a 6 GB/s sata port?

I tried all my SATA ports 🙂

Should it not be backward compatible?

If you say it is not showing up in the bios and not spinning, it sure does sound bad to me. They have a 5 year warranty. Call Seagate and tell them the problem, If they confirm it is a bad drive, they will have you set up an RMA.

Yeah I am aiming for that. Thanks for quick replies 🙂

No problem at all, you can post back if you want and let us know if your drives are bad and had to set up an RMA.

will do 🙂
