|I will state once more. The data on a hard drive has absolutely NO bearing on weather of not the hard drive will be identified in the BIOS. You obviously have something set wrong. |
Are you trying to boot to the Windows disk? If so, do you have the boot order set for the CD/DVD drive before the hard drive?
Watch for a message to hit any key to boot from the CD drive. If you don't get that message then you either have the boot order wrong, the drives configured wrong, or have a bad disk.
Watch the post screens at start up. If all your drives are not identified there then you either have defective drives, or more likely they are not properly configured.
Trying to insult our intelligence gets you no where. You may be the one that doesn't understand.
