No, I checked the power connectors, I even tried using the SATA power adapter just in case. I've tried this over and over many times, spent a couple of hours messing with different bios settings, even tried uplugging my IDE0 cable that has my optical drives on it.
The drives aren't actually the same. One is a 120 GB, while th other is only 80. Also, the one that works is all set to go. I don't wan't to have to reinstall everything on that again.
I don't think it's a builing error cause when I plug in the other drive, with the same cable and everything, it boots up just fine.
I have not installed any drivers, nor should I have to unless I'm using the drive in RAID(which I'm not). Like I said, the other drive worked when I swapped it on to this system.
Thanks for all the reply's. I'm going to RMA it back to newegg, and just take the 15% hit. I just picked up another 120 GB WD(the same exact one as the one that worked) at Fry's for a better price than the 80 so hopefully that will do the trick.
