Hi, so I just built a new PC, everything is new besides the HDD and SSD which was working in my old pc. Now when I try them in my new build it wont detect the disks in bios. Any help?


Specs:
Motherboard: ASUS ROG STRIX X570-F
CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 5800x
RAM: Kingston Fury 32GB
GPU: ASUS Geforce RTX 3070 ti
PSU: Corsair RM850
SSD: WD Green 240GB SSD (SATA)
HDD: 1TB HDD (SATA)

And booting from a Windows install USB does or does not show this drive.
With all new parts, a full OS install is likely required.

With ONLY the desired drive (the WD Green?) connected at the time.

The system doesn't detect the SSD at all, so can't reinstall windows on it.

Yes the power cable is connected to both drives
Try booting from a usb with a real drive partitioning tool like Gparted or Minitool Partition Wizard and see if they recognize the drives. If successful delete all existing partitions so that all space is unallocated and ensure that the drives have GPT partition identifiers.

Try different sata ports on the mobo.
Try different sata data cables.
Try different sata power cables.
Look through the bios for an enable/disable sata.
