BUG: when new HDD attached via SATA win 8 dp does not see it.

    Question

  • after installing win 8 dp and playing a bit, I attached, my old hdd with win 7 on it. bios noticed the change, but not windows 8. I tried different slots and cords to no effect. detached dvd-rom and saw a strange thing. windows 8 still thought i had dvd attached. This behavior made me think that it is somehow tied to new boot technology. Oh and rescan disks from Disk management didn' help as scan for hardware changes in device manager.

    next thing i   pressed F8 during boot, command prompt, diskpart list disk. disk was obviously listed there. I rebooted to windows and there it was.

    Now i don't think that using diskpart helped here, I think that after that winpe windows cold booted and detected my disk.

  • I guess it was not clear enough. I was talking about internal SATA drives directly connected to motherboard.

    PC model "HP Compaq 8000 Elite CMT PC"

    DISKS - Seagate ST31000340NS and ST3250318AS

    win 7 was installed on 250Gb, win 8 on 1T

    Doing reset from win8 didn't fix the issue, neither did shut down.

     

    install steps:

    I had win 7 installed on 250Gb drive.

    I detached it from motherboard and attached a new 1T drive

    Installed win8 and it was good enough for me to move to.

    I attached the 250Gb drive back and win8 didn't see it, but BIOS did.

    As did WinPe ( when I booted to command prompt of win8) and after that win 8 saw it too.

    Also just to check my theory I detached the DVD (also SATA attached), and win8 still thinks it is connected.

  • I just observed the same problem on an  intel DH5JG added Western Digital / Seagate both  320g 2,5's.

    The bios picks them up but win8 uefi fails to rescan.

    Special Note: The Segate had win8 on it so I changed boot order and had the reverse problem.

    It would seem we need to be able to trigger a hardware setup again.

     

    Glad to help if you need further this machine is wide open at this point.

    I have found a fix  at boot F8 Advanced Repair and reboot.

    This allowed me to see all drives!

  • When you go to the Device Manager, do you see the HD detected?

    Is this an internal or external HD and what is the model and make and manufacturer?

    Can you descibe the install steps and also the Computer make and model?

    Lastly, I wonder if you do a Reset, if this would fix the issue?

    Thanks.  This info will help us track this issue.

    Yeah that's how I did it as well, as I already wrote.
