    I recently replaced one of the hard drives in my M18X R1, and now it only sees one hard drive regardless of whats in there, as long as its in the Top slot. tried a bios reset, different hard drives, reseating cable to mobo, no luck. Is there anything i could try to fix that before i order a new sata plug thing for it?

    So the new hard drive works fine in the top slot? I don't see how the cable just became bad but these M18x computers did have a known issue of having bad cables.
