Two years ago i built a server based on the original “Anniversary Build”. Managed to snag a GA-7PESH2 when they were more than myth and paired with 2 e5-2690 cpus. Recently i decided to move the server from a 4U server chassis to a Phanteks Enthoo Pro 2 Tower case but now i regret ever touching it. The server boots just fine and loads into Unraid from an attached USB stick. Issue is that none of my drives are being detected, neither my 2 SSD nor 4 HDD. Initially i thought it was an issue with Unraid but after booting into the BIOS I can see that none of the drives are present there either. When i check the SATA config i just see “Not Present” for all ports despite having drives attached.
Things Ive tried so far:
- Different SATA cables
- Disabling/enabling SATA
- Switching to IDE SATA mode
- Resetting BIOS to defaults
- Removing CMOS to reset
Nothing seems to be working. I currently have the mobo set up out of the case and Im trying things like removing DIMMS and booting with only 1 CPU as well as trying a second PSU to rule that out but I’m pretty stumped at this point. There has been no change to the configuration this was meant to be a simple lift and shift.
Is my motherboard dead??? Any help on this appreciated !!!
