    Default Asrock G41C-GS - cannot get SSD to work

    Hello, I just upgraded my old mobo to Asrock G41C-GS but I cannot get my Kingston V300 128 Gb SSD detected by BIOS.

    Anything special I would need to tweak?

    Your motherboad is old V300 is supposed to be compatible with SATA 2.0 but maybe there is problem with bios.

    It is meant to work without AHCI as SATAII, but it doesn't.

    SSD works fine in my laptop. Cable works fine with another mechanical hard drive, which gets detected.

    ?

    Thought about that and updated to last version available (1.30).

    Does anyone with a G41C-GS or S got their SSD working?

    You can try sending private message about it to ASRock TSD - Emily like I did about vt-d on Z87.

    A new BIOS version, 1.40, is available.

    You haven't given us much information. What OS or version of Windows are you using?

    What SATA mode are you using? What SATA driver are you using?

    The SSD may not be seen in the BIOS, but is it seen by Windows, or whatever OS you are using? That might sound strange, but it can happen.

    - BIOS is 1.40 (after upgrade)
    - SATA mode is not an option in BIOS, AFAIK, so it is whatever it is default
    - OS is Windows 8 x64, with default windows drivers for ATA (27C0) and UltraATA (27DF)
    - SSD not seen in BIOS, and also not seen by OS

    Thanks for your help, if further details are needed just let me know

    I can't get your board's manual to download, or my own board's manual too. Seems to be a problem with ASRock's site.

    What other drive(s) are you using with this board, and are they SATA drives or IDE drives?

    Without the manual, I can't give you much help at all.

    Double check the power to the SSD, or use a different power cable or different SATA connector on the board.
