Need SSD help
Building my new pc and stuck at installing win7 bc my ssd does not show up in the BIOS. I have an intel 520 and tried all the G6 SATA connectors and UEFI shows nothing under SATA config.

Is your motherboard's sata port set in AHCI mode?
Is your power cable/sata cable connected properly?

Try a known good SATA cable. Try a different sata power connector. IF it still is not showing up...yank it and stick in a different rig and see if it shows up. IF it doesnt after using known good cables and a second rig....its a DOA ssd. It happens. Rare with Intel...but it happens. They are great peeps to deal with. BUT see if its just something easy to fix first. ;)
