Why is my hard drive not being recognized?

テキスト:

It won't boot. The hard drive is not recognized in Disk Utility or in a fresh install. I took out the hdd and plugged it in another computer and it is fine.  The optical drive works fine, so I doubt it's the logic board.  I think it's just the SATA power/data cable.  I heard that it could potentially be fixed by putting some tape in between the drive and the cable to force the connections closer together.  I will try that tonight and report back.  If it's not the cable then I believe it's the logic board.  I'm not interested in spending $600 on a new board, but I would be willing to remove the optical drive and use the adapter that allows for a second HDD to be installed there.  So I guess I'm asking if anyone has any other ideas, but also I want to make sure that if I replaced the optical drive with my HDD that I could use that as my only drive.  Everything previously says that it is meant to be used for expanded storage, but I want to confirm that it can be the boot drive as well.  Thanks!
