Sata Hdd not seen in Bios

Hi. I have changed my Motherboard and cpu (Asus P5G41T-m LX & Intel E6600), All other parts are original; 200Gb Sata Hdd (data Storage only), 500Gb sata Hdd, (Windows 7 O/s installed)& 2 Opticle drives on IDE.When the system boots and I go in the Bios the 2 Opticle drives are identified on the IDE but only the 200Gb Hdd is recognised, the 500 Gb Hdd is not recognised, I have tried different sata & power leads and all different configurations in the Bios to try and "find" the Hdd. It is still not seen in the Bios, any ideas anyone..?

Bios updated, still not working, the drive was working perfectly before the Motherboard change.

On the chance that you may have damaged the cable when you changed the motherboard, try changing both data and power cable to that drive or try the good drive with those cables. Terry

double check the wiring on the motherboard make sure all connections are on properly.

I have had problems in the past where a loose connection caused unrecognized hardware.
