Computer won't boot with new Seagate Barracuda drive as secondary drv
Using Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. W/ASUS P7P55D Deluxe board Very stable and non buggy.
Computer was running great with multiple drives. I substituted one of my 1TB drives with a brand new Seagate 3 TB drive. With the new drive hooked up, the computer will not boot and gives a message that there is no hard drive detected, put media in and hit the key. (something to that effect).
If I enter the bios in the condition, it shows all the drives in their correct order and the boot sequence is the first hard drive, CD, etc. It has detected the new drive as drive #3.
But it will not boot.
But, if I disconnect the new drive (power and SATA connector), the compute will boot up fine.
I have checked all the connectors ad they seem fine.
Is there something about the sequence in which the SATA connectors have to be connected?
I am mystified.
