    Default SATA Not Detected: ASRock z77 Professional-M


    I've just mount a desktop for me with this specs:

    • Mobo: ASRock z77 Professional-M
    • Processor: i5-3570k
    • Graphic Card: HD7950
    • RAM: 8 GB
    • SSD: Samsung 840 120 GB (plugged on SATA3)
    • HDD: Seagate SATA3 1 TB
    • DVD reader/writer: LG (plugged on SATA2)
    • ...

    The problem is when I enter on UEFI Setup > System Browser or Advanced > Storage Configuration shows that no SATA (2 or 3) is detected! I've tryed all SATA ports, changed cables, plug 1 or 2 cables, reset CMOS, re-plug other components,...

    There's nothing installed on desktop cause I can't access SSD, HDD or CD reader with Windows Instalation.

    Any ideia? Can be a Mobo problem?

    Is SATA Controllers set to Enabled?

    Set SATA Aggressive Link Power Management to DISABLED.

    SATA mode should be set to AHCI, or RAID if you plan on using that.

    You must be certain your SSD and other drives are connected to the INTEL SATA 3 ports, NOT the ASMedia ports which will not work on until the OS and its driver is installed. Check the manual for the Intel port's location.

    Check the power connections to the drives, since at least a few of your drives should be seen by the System Browser, the ones on the Intel ports.
