Windows 7: HP Boot Sata Cable Error

HP Boot Sata Cable Error

I am posting here what I posted to the HP Forum. I post here because at HP a message may sit unanswered.

Here is the difficulty:

During boot the message starts with '1796 Sata Cable Error' and indicates the color of the cable and that there will be a performance issue. I have four hard drives and one cd drive. I have in every fashion changed the insert arrangement and what ever I do I get the 1796 error. In fact I disconnected all sata cables except for the primary boot drive - and I get 1796 error. And yes the Bios is updated - this machine, Windows 7 Pro runs with 32 GB memory.

I would ignore the message but I keep losing after boot my G: drive. In fact occassionally during boot the system runs a chkdsk on G drive. No errors of course. However I will end up now and then with G drive missing. I then need to reboot to reclaim G drive. I have run SCP and Chkdsk.

In fact drive G (WD 1 TB) I did download the WD Diag utility. All the drives, Western Digital passed, and drive G I even ran the extended test - and it passed.

Thus my conclusion is that I need to fix that cable situation - and be free from any future 1796 boot errors. Is there a remedy?

Thanks!

From what you say is that i think your SATA cable or the slot may be faulty one, Remove all sata cables from all slots and hard drives, connect one SATA at a time in one slot with BOOTING hard disk and try to BOOT and see whether you got same error in all slots and cables with single hard disk to make sure where is the original fault was.
Sorry for my Bad English as English is not my native.

sata to sata 3 cable
I bought a sata3 ssd instead of a sata ssd- didn't read the package correctly. I've already cloned the sata3 drive. Is there a cable/adapter available that I can adapt the sata wiring to the sata3 drive? It's going into a Dell 545 desktop. Thanks. Mark

sata cable
I have a hp pavilion DV7 (4180eb). It has a SATA 3 slot for 1 HDD but it's no regular sata cable and power cable: it's integrated in one cable. Has each laptop a specific sata cable?
