Hello. I have a dh67bl motherboard and i am trying to install multiple drives but with no good results.
I have a corsair 90gb ssd...a Toshiba 3tb and a wd purple 4tb.
All work ok alone on the 6gb/s sata...in all configurations.
But when i try to add one on the 3gb/s sata i can sometimes see it in bios..but the windows doesn't recognize it. Windows on ssd is in ahci mode without uefi...and now i tried with another install on the wd drive ahci with uefi activated but with same results.
I am using a jumper settings to go to 3gb/s on the wd whenever i try to plug it in in the 3gb/s ports. the Toshiba as i know needs no such thing. Tried changing all the sata cables multiple times also.
Whenever i have a disk in the 3gb/s sata and i see it in bios...the windows boot hans..or just stays blocked....or sometimes it goes but i cant see the drive in windows; or i see it but i cant do anything with it.
Any ideas at this point are welcomed.
Thank you for contacting Intel Communities.
I am sorry to hear you are having issues with the SATA II interface.
Can you please provide the following information to better assist you?
Operating system is windows 10 pro latest updates. And also latest version of bios. I already did all updates reinstalled windows bios restarts and things like that.
I am thinking the motherboard's 3gb/s sata ports are faulty and there is nothing for me to do just use it as it is with only 2 drives and make an upgrade when i can.
if you think that there is anything for me to try ...i am listening.
Thank you for the information.
At this point, I would recommend testing the system with a http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/desktop-boards/000005640. supported OS for this motherboard, if the issue persists, most likely the issue is related to the SATA II as you mentioned.
I hope this helps.
