Only after a cold boot will Win 7 again recognize that 2nd drive.

rwpritchettApr 17, 2010, 10:04 PM Gigabyte boards here too.You shouldn't see a BSOD unless it's your boot drive that disappears, I believe. I already looked in the bluetooth software that installs with the driver, and I and couldn't find any feature that could help with this problem.

Ok, I'll grant that your setup as described probably warrants a larger than average PSU. I'm down toone secondary drive left. And I agree with the advice that a 7 year old PSU is likely due for replacement; at that age you're likely to start seeing things like capacitor failure. Overkill in a PSU means that it will run less efficiently, and thereby use more energy (== more heat, more noise, lesser device lifetime) than one better matched to the workload.

I did want to put the concept out here though, the more adept people might know right off. Generally speaking, a dying/faulty PSU is unlikely to just take out the HDDs. It turned out to be a bad sata cable. Is this a clean install with the new setup of Win 10?

Aargh. My BIOS defaults to IDE, where I've left it. Rescan in disk manager doesn't detect it either. I use the Microsoft AHCI drivers because the Intel ones do not pass TRIM commands to the SDD.

Going from IDE->AHCI is only possible if you jump through some hoops. Tossing a jumper in the right-most two pins reduces the transfer to only 1.5gig/s. Power and data cables are secure. And I was so hoping you had found a fix.
