having some trouble getting it all to run:
Have the system PP Mguire recommended, with the EVGA graphic card and I added a second HDD (2TB).
At first neither hard drive would appear in Windows. I had to go into Computer Management and Partition the drives (made one big partition on each drive) and now it recognizes them, but I think I lost a little bit of storage (1TB has 931 GB and the 2TB has 1.81 TB avail, I know you lose some for operational purposes but seems like more than it should be).
My USB portable HDD won't come up in Windows (and that is what I transferred ALL my files to
). When I go to device Manager, it seems to appear as a USB Mass Storage device with updated drivers and no errors. The safely remove hardware program recognizes it, and it comes up as a numbered (no letter) disc in "Computer Management" but I can't see it in "My Computer" or get access to it.
Flashed latest BIOS, updated Windows (7, 64 bit). Only error/problem I can detect in the system is under device manager: "Other devices": "PCI Simple Communications Controller" has a "!" and it says "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28) but updating the driver fails to find one.
I see on the Asrock website and manual (ASRock > X99 Extreme4
that the only Plextor M.2_SSD they support are 256 and 512 GB (not the 128 GB that I have). the SSD seems to be working fine as that is what Win7 is on.
I'm going to do a fresh re-install of Windows/BIOS and see if it works, but I'm stumped.
I did create the USB on a 32 bit Win7, but it reads fine on my Win7 64 bit laptop.
