Dino, If you reload windows then yes it will erase everything on the hard drive. There are times when a reformat isn't necessary after a mobo swap but it's more luck than anything else if everything works if it's not the exact same part. If there are files you don't want to lose on that hard drive I would recommend a backup either way just to be safe.

So....the mobo reads the SSD HDD drive as my boot...good

Mobo won't recognize any other HDD...my back up drive is not detected. I have changed SATA ports and cables...nothing.

OMGGGGGGGGGGG

Make sure your other SATA ports are enabled in your bios settings maybe?

does it recognize your sata cd rom drive? If so plug a hard drive into it's port temporarily and see if it's recognized.

I tried in other ports and nothing, even the currently working ports that the SSD and CD were plugged into. It doesn't even sound like the HDD spins.

Maybe my previous mobo fried the drive? If so, that sucks! How can I go about extracting the info from that drive as it WAS my primary for the longest time...files/pics?

would this work to see if it is working?

hook the drive into another PC (Laptop) and run it off the power supply of the PC it isn't working on to see if it is working and two grab the stuff off of it.

send it to oro.

Onaway, that wouldn't work, you can't hook up a desktop drive to a laptop.

You can however get a usb hard drive adapter Like This One and try hooking up the drive.

Dino, if you hold the drive while you have it hooked up to your desktop and rotate it slightly, a lot of times you will feel the centrifugal force from the rotating discs inside. Also, try putting your ear to it while on and see you hear anything. Any repeating sounds, extremely not normal sounds, or no sound and the drive is gone and the data most likely is too. You can try sending it to data recovery professionals who will physically rebuild the drive, but just for them to look at it costs hundreds, data recovery then costs thousands...

If you want, I can take a look at it for you too.

I have a hard drive enclosure that I tried and there is no sound from that hard drive, no feel of movement.

Oro, could you take a look at it? Maybe you have some weird computer trickery. This drive has ALOT of pictures that I don't have backup of :(
