I have a 750 GB sata 3.0 HDD which i'm trying to connect to a sata RAID
card or motherboard. I've connected my hard drive using an sata cable
to both my motherboard and my raid card. When i try either this
prevents windows froms starting. The motherboard sata is 3.0gb/s, the
raid card is 1.5gb/s. I've tried all jumper settings and made sure all
cables are working. I have another sata drive that works with
everything. The hdd that works is a samsung, the hdd that doesn't is a
western digital recertified.
I have an sata enclosure which has its own powersupply and a sata to
esata cable. My hdd above only works when i put the hdd in the
enclosure and connect the sata to esata to the motherboard. The
enclosure does not work with the raid card.
