    Hi ,

    To begin , i'm french so my english is not perfect , i hope you will understand me.

    Let's try again:

    At the top:
    "Principal" "Securite" "Diagnostics" "Configuration du Systeme" "Quitter

    LatinMCg suggests looking at "Securite" which you did, passwords only, OK

    Look at "Configuration du Systeme" that may contain what we need.

    I do not think we need to reflash the bios,
    I think we need to reset the configuration to identify the hard drive
    so it can be recognized.

    Update HDD firmware on a machine that does recognise the HDD, then install it into your new boards machine
