    Hey guys, I'm new to the FreeNAS world. I recently installed FreeNAS 8.2 on my 8GB flash drive and everything installed fine. I got into the web interface to configure the drives but ran into a problem, I have 2 hard drives in my system, a WD Blue 320GB and a Seagate 250GB. The WD is the one that is not detected by FreeNAS, I know the drive is good because it is detected in the BIOS and by an Ubuntu Live CD. I'm not really sure what I can do to try and fix this, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and if you need any more info from me, I'll do my best to provide it.

    Specs:
    GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P Mobo
    AMD Phenom II X4 940 CPU
    8GB G.SKILL DDR2 1066 RAM
    WD Blue 320GB HDD
    Seagate 250GB HDD

    Please get the output of (use web shell or active ssh service and use an ssh client)

    Code (text):
    1. dmesg | grep -e ada
    Code (text):
    1. ls /dev/
    Code (text):
    1. camcontrol devlist
    -- just in in case --
    Code (text):
    1. zpool status
    Code (text):
    1. gstripe status
    * Check is the drive is listed under WebGUI -> Storage -> View Disks
    * Are the drives connected to the mainboards native sata ports? or some crippled marvel controller? (switch the sata ports of the 2 disks)
    * Please use code tags for each output!

    gstripe status came up with nothing.

    The drive is not listed under view disks, drives are connected to the mainboard SATA ports. I'll try switching them soon.

    Hmm dosent look good, your Freenas "really" doesn't know the drive.

    Things to check:
    - Switch cables
    - check that you didn't configured a Bios Software Raid
    - just in case make sure that the WD is also configured with AHCI (like the seagate)
    - Prepare a FreeBSD 8.3 USB Stick (choose memstick media and after booting choose Live CD Mode) try "dmesg | grep -e ada" and look if the second drive is listed

    I don't know why I didn't try switching cables/ports before coming here. I switched the cable and SATA port and now it works fine. Thank you for your help.
