jay2tall said:Which mobo do you have? I know with my ASUS there are different Sata connections for the RAID and just a stand alone sata. or at least the boot drives need to be in a certain interface. Read the manual and make sure it is in the sata 0 plug.

I am trying to install a 250gb Hitachi SATA drive. After installing it, the BIOS can see that SATA drive but when I tried to load windows XP, the computer could not find it. I believe this to be a driver problem. My motherboard is an ASUS A8V Deluxe . The BIOS is 1017 (which is the newest available) 1018 is only a Beta.
First of all I created two diskettes, 378 ATA and 378 Raid. In the BIOS I had the 'Onboard SATA Bootrom - enabled', 'Onboard Promise Controller - enabled' and Operating mode set as Raid Mode'.
When I start the computer, I had it boot up from the CDRom. As soon as it starts to load Windows I pressed F6. In the next screen I installed both the 378 ATA and 378 Raid from those two diskettes. When I tried to load windowsXP it still can't see the drive.
I have downloaded the Hitachi Feature Tool and had the drive set up as SATA 1. There is a choice of either Enable or Disable 'Spread Spectrum Clocking'. As I do not know what it is I had it Disabled.
I have spend over 6 hours on installing the SATA drive with no success. I am now totally lost in knowing what to try next.
Since I tried to install the SATA drive a message keep coming up in the boot up process saying 'No drive attached to Fasttrak controller, The BIOS is not installed'. Is it possible to get rid of that message?
