Asus K8V Via chipset not detecting new hard disks

Just got some new hard disks, two Velociraptor 150 GB(WD15000HLFS) I am going to configure to RAID 0, and a single WD Caviar Black 1 TB(WD1002FAEX). The Via controller (on board mobo controller) won't detect any of them but the promise(also onboard) will. My question: With the K8V Deluxe(all BIOS updated already), is thier any option, such as a SATA III controller card(PCI only, no PCIe)? This PC built as a Falcon NW(Mach V) back in 2002. I am using Winodws XPPro SP3(and no detectable problems with the loading of any on Promise controller chip) however, I do not feel safe running as that chip is not SATA III. could cause data problems in the future.

  1. In BiOS, make sure SATA raid is enabled. That will enable the 2nd SATA controller.
