N54L not recognising HDDs

I'm a total noob to these microservers. I bought one off eBay, it had an SSD installed, I installed Windows Server and expected to see the SSD plus the 3 SATA drives I installed. But alas no, I cannot see them only the SSD.

 

Where am I going wrong? Do I need any specialist drivers or do I need to activate something in the BIOS?

 

Any help will be appreciated!

Sounds like the cable leading to the drive cage is not connected correctly to the motherboard.  Make sure it is fully in and that the motherboard side of the connection, ie the recepticle hasnt got the middle bit bent to one side.

 

I would slide the motherboard partially out, disconnect the cable and reconnect it making sure it is seated correctly and fully in.

 

You should not need to do anything in the BIOS.

 

I have assumed your SSD is up in the ODD bay.

Thank you very much for your reply!

 

SSD is in the ODD and I will complete this and feedback.

Just did what @oceang suggested.

 

The cable that connected the drive bays was plugged in the wrong way, plugged it in the right way and now all drives are showing.

 

Thanks so much for your help!
