    This is odd.

    Highly unlikely.
    This condition survives through a reboot of the system?

  11. This is a SATA III drive?
    Try a different port on the motherboard.

    Yea just unhook your HDD and then partition it when it ask you to install windows 10 your gonna need a windows 10 USB or disk
  15. I've had this problem:
    - SSD (samsung 850 evo) showing in BIOS, but NOT in Device Manager and NOT in Disk Management.

    Fix:
    - open Device Manager
    - expand IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers
    - right click on Standard SATA AHCI Controller, select Uninstall
    - reboot, after reboot drive shows up in Device Manager
  16. Thank you soo much, this solution worked perfectly. As soon as I uninstalled all of the Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controllers and restarted everything appeared immediately following reboot. Awesome, Awesome, Awesome!!

    This fixed the issue for me. You're a legend!

    Makes me wonder what caused it in the first place.
