  1. hdd detected in bios but not in windows


    My new HDD 3,5" 2TB hard drive is connected and detected in BIOS. But it doesn't show in OS. I cannot "install" it in computer management. If I use the command panel it doesn't show BUT, but I CAN see the drive in the device manager. From what I can tell there is no need for a new driver, everything is up to date in the computer. This driver is nr. 3 since I have another identical that works perfectly. I've tried other SATA ports but it is the same.

  3. HDD is detected in BIOS, but not in Windows

    The HDD is detected in BIOS as it is showing its serial number, but anything else while booting, it is not detected.

    I cannot get into Windows as the whole drive (drive Chdd detected in bios but not in windows :) is corrupted. So, I am left with WinRE by using a Windows installation disk.

    I tried every command I found online to fix the issue, but all I get is an error.

    Code:
    > C:The system cannot find the drive specified.> bootrec /fixmbrThe system cannot find the path specified.> echo list disk | diskpartThere are no fixed disks to show.
    Upon booting up, it showed the manufacturer logo, but there were no spinning dots (loader).

    How can I gain access to the HDD again? As much as possible, I don't want to lose even a single file.

    More details can be found here.

    Computer specs:

    Type: Laptop

    Make and Model: Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-33YP

    CPU: Intel Core i3-6006U (2.0 GHz)

    RAM: 4GB DDR4

    HDD: 1 TB

    OS: Windows 10 (but it got corrupted, though I also have a Windows 10 installation disk)

    hdd detected in bios but not in windows

    Windows 10 not detecting HDD but Bios is.

    I had 2 HDDs (1st one is - 1TB and 2nd one is - 500 ) installed in my CPUs and wanted to install another one when I plugged the third HDD on my PC, the system didn't detect the new one but also didn't detect my 2nd HDD (500GB), and now I'm left off with
    my 1st 1TB HDD. I removed the 3rd HDD which I was trying to install... I thought it was some hardware issue, but when I booted into the Bios system, I saw Both of my HDDs, the 1TB and 500GB one, So there is some Windows Software issue it seems, they Disk is
    not being detected even in Disk Manager. Please provide a solution!
