GA-EX58-UD3D and 1 SATA drive. Can't format SATA drive!
Posted on 2009-05-07
I have a new GA-EX58-UD3D Motherboard and 1 Western Digital 300 GIG Velociraptor . I am not trying to use RAID just yet since I only have the 1 drive. For some reason I cant get the drive to Format, I have booted from XP/Vista/Windows 7 disks and all see the drive, partition the drive, but all fail to format the drive. I have tried many of the SATA slots, I have tried switching to ACHI mode in the bios, I have tried loading the SATA drivers that came with the Motherboard. Any ideas?
