my old intel dh61ww mb is not supporting two 500gb hdd despite bios update. please help
That's an awfully terse description. Please provide more details - a lot more details. What processor, disks, memory, power supply, etc. and etc.
Hi, Thanks for reply. Please find below info you have requested:
Mother board - intel DH61WW_
BIOS Version/Date - intel corp. BEH6110H.86A.0120.2013.1112.1412, 12-11-2013
SMBIOS Version - 2.7
Pocessor - intel core i3-2120 cpu @3.30GHZ, 3300Mhz, 2 core(s), 4 logical processor(s)
RAM - 4gb
Power supply - iball 400va 230vac 50/60Hz
HDD -500gb, 500gb, 1tb all Seagate Barracuda. Connected with SATA cables.
Issue is Any single hdd is running/ bios detects only one hdd at the time of POST mainly at port0 when I connect all together. But if I fix any single one that is working perfectly. I mean available at bios and o/s Win7 sp 1) runs smoothly without any issue. So, there is no issue with disk drives. Main issue with board and/or bios which is not detecting if installed together.
It is important to connect any two or all for backup of hdd.
Please find attached. screen shot taken on different scenarios:
1. ony 1tb hdd attached and boot
2. Only first 500gb attached and boot
3. only second 500gb attached and boot
4. All hdds attached together and boot (even this happen when any two hdd(s) are attached and boot).
SATA mode AHCI is the default option. If I change to IDE mode then also same result and windows doesn't boot
I hope these all make you understand and trouble shoot
