I just bought a TC-1760 icore5 12400 with a 500 gig Kensington SSD. Works super fast compared to my older Acer, but... I added a brand new Seagate 1Terabite Sata HDD for data storage, and the machine won't boot with it connected. I get the Acer logo and the spinning dots forever. If I leave the power connected and disconnect the SATA cable, it will boot. If I disconnect the power cable and leave the SATA cable connected it won't boot. If I do a hot connect after the machine is booted, the drive is not seen either. I tried the other SATA ports and no luck. I checked the bios and it's not there either. I can feel the drive spin up for about 5 secs when I try to boot the machine but then just the Acer logo, so I know the HDD is getting power. I can't find any bios setting where the SATA ports are disabled. I even disconnected the DVD drive and used that port, but the results are the same. I can't test the HDD in my old computer because it has different ports. I'm stumped. Does anyone have any ideas on this?
