Started RAID 5 now bios not detecting drive HELP Tags: NAS / RAID Sata Storage Last response: May 25, 2007 8:23 PM in Storage Share floyd19 May 25, 2007 6:59:03 PM I started to configure a RAID 5 with 3 barracuda 400GB sata drives, ICH8R raid controller on a asus pb5 mobo. I configured the 3 drives fine then realized that I needed to make a floppy for the drive controller. I turned off the machine. When i went back in i brought up the intel menu again and now the first sata drive is labeled as DEGRADED. I wasnt sure what that meant but i went and loaded the driver and then attempted to load windows xp. The xp setup sits at 0% formatting. I turned off again and went into the bios. Now it is listing the first sata drive as not detected. What is going on here???????

Reconnect it and you are good to go. This often happens when to power connector is sata or molex y cable of poor quality. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>Started RAID 5 now bios not detecting drive HELP> Related ressources: ForumProblem with home built computer detecting hard drive ForumICH9R; RAID 5 ; cannot re-add drive to volume ForumUpdated KG7- RAID bios to 5 W now HD goes nuts :( Forumnew Sata drive not detecting in bios ..
