XP SP3 fresh. Latest BIOS and drivers. Simple ECS motherboard. Primary master IDE drive.
SiiG 2-port SATA PCI card. Latest driver. WD drive 400GB.
On POST, card rom shows drive attached.
In XP, drive is in Device Manager w/ no issues. Opening Drive Management takes forever and doesn't show the drive. Also, Diskpart errors out and wont start.
With drive detached, all works fine.
Drive issue or card issue?

Is it the drive that shows in Device Manager or just the PCI card?
