Is there a way to check the motherboard for a SY-K7V Dragon? I can't get it
to bootup. I installed a DVD recorder and everything work. I moved some IDE
cables around to try to get the RAID to work and nothing happened. I moved
them back where they were and it still doesn't work. Is it possible i
shorted the board out or something?
I guess i could try the drives in another computer and see what works by the
process of elimination.
Thanks for the help....tcoop

With the drives on the non-raid ide ports, do you see the drives in the main
bios? When you put them on the Raid ide ports, had you already installed the
Raid drivers? In the boot selection did you change the preference to Raid or
SCSI depending on what name your board calls the drives that are on the Raid
ports?

With the DVD on the end of a ribbon cable and plugged into IDE1 it shows up
as the IDE Primary Master.
I have the C drive on the end of a cable with the second drive connected to
it in the middle. It is connected to IDE2. The DVD and both drives are
showing up in the BIOS..
How should the boot sequence be, is this correct?

No the drivers were not installed and it did not boot up. I put the
connectors back on IDE1 and IDE2 and it booted up.
The drivers installed are
Windows XP Promise ULTRA 100 IDE controller, but yet it says it isn;t
installed
Also XMASSCSI SCSI Controller is installed.

Yes the preferrences were set in this boot order. RAID/ATA/SCSI I changed it
to SCSI/RAID/ATA but even after saving the settings it goes back to
RAID/ATA/SCSI, also when it boots up it says ULTRA100 bios not found because
no drivers were installed
..The onboard Promise IDE Raid controller is enabled.

I down loaded the XP drivers for this board but can't get them installed.
It is working now, maybe I should leave it alone. I thought i could improve
the speed and performance.
I may need to read up on RAID, do you any informative sites?
Thanks for the help, tcoop

First your DVD should be plugged into IDE2 and the cable with the C: drive
should be plugged into IDE1.

Then your boot order should be:
1. Floppy
2. Hard Drive
3. Optical

You can take the floppy out if your like. I am, my boot sequence is:
1. Hard Drive
2. Optical
3. Disabled

Now days with bootable CD drives, when your installing the operating system
its best to have the boot order set to:
1. Optical
2. Hard Drive
3. Floppy or Disabled
Then when your system is up and running reset the first boot divice.

If your running your primary hard drive off a RAID controller, (RAID Array
or NOT) the boot order would be:
1. SCSI
2. Optical
3. Floppy or Disabled

Or if your loading XP on a RAID Array or Single drive off a RAID controller
it would be:
1. Optical
2. SCSI
3. Floppy

Boot order can be set however it best suits you. But in general you should
always keep your booting hard disk on IDE1 or to the RAID controller (IDE3)
