Hello,
I am trying to build a new system with 1 SSD and 2 HDD all sata on my new asus z67 mobo. I installed windows with AHCI mode. Everything is fine, however 1 of my HDD shows up as the wrong size and diskmanagment cant initilize it, But if i go to bios and set AHCI to IDE all 3 works fine!!!!! why is that? both bios and intel rapid storage sees all 3 harddrives fine. it's only that one HDD that's giving me problems. Any Help is appreciated thanks

no idea how that happened >.<, the models as follows, crucial M4 ssd 128GB, 2 WDC WD5000AAks-75v0a0 500GB. I am currently running on IDE mode, but if i switch to AHCI One of my WDC disks goes missing in windows only, it is there in bios, even intel rapid storage detects it. diskmanagement refuse to initiatlize it. thx
