Hi, I have a M.2 256 GB SSD in my pc and I want to add an additional 1.5 tb HDD, but here is the issue I faced: neither Bios or Windows does not display the presence of my HDD in the system. I thought it could be HDD that is broken and i tested it with my other laptop, it worked fine. Then I checked the cable by inserting the HDD(320GB) from my second laptop and it was ok, fully functional. After reading some forums I think that problem is hiding in the bios settings, but I did not found anything that even looks like it could manage the storage system settings. Information slide displays only the fact that system runs in AHCI mode and HDD0: Intel ... , boot option is selected Legacy. What should I do in this case? Is there some solution that lays in updating the bios or smth like that?
P.S. Changing HDD is not a really suitable solution for me, I have this one laying around and I don't have spare money to buy a new one.
P.S.S Sorry for my poor English.
P.S.S.S Thanks in advance.
