BIOS won't detect WD800BB

On my old secondary computer my setup was

Motherboard: Chaintech VNF2-350

Master 0: HDS722516VLAT80 with Windows XP SP3

Slave 0: WD800BB-53CCB0

But then I started getting Machine Check Exceptions and my motherboard ultimately perished. So I replaced that with a Foxconn K8S755A-6ELRS. But this new motherboard won’t detect the hard drive.

It will hang at the part that says “Detecting IDE drives”, sometimes it will give up and display “0”  where the drive is supposed to be, other times it will hang until you unplug the cable.

If it’s on the same channel as the Hitachi drive with XP on it, the BIOS recognizes the other drive, but fails to boot from it.

If they are on different channels, it boots the XP drive but will see no hint of the drive on the other channel., even in Disk Management or Device Manager.

I also tried connecting it to my other computer’s Intel DP35DP mobo, and it was able to detect/read/write and all that, though it does have a few bad sectors.

Any help?

Well, if the drive is been seen in one computer it means you are dealing with a configuration issue. The drive is not faulty.

Drive seems to be working fine, you may contact Foxcomm for more support.
