320gb sata11 is not seen by bios
\015 I have a MSI 661FM2 motherbrd. When the PC boots up on the black screen I can see the Sumsang Sata drive as the primary master. However when I go into bios I cannot c the drive. I have set the jumper setting to force 1.5Gb bus speed. I can load the DM and sees the disk,but when I try to copy the primary slave (boot disk) across it fails after 3%. I have dpownloaded the ES tools(diagnostic) boot of it but this does not show the disk when scanning the bus.This is becoming frustrating since I have tried all possible ways to fix.\015
