I have the ASUS P6T Mainboard. I have 6 hard disks installed at the moment. All 6 of them are Sata2 hdd's. I have used up all 6 of the connectors on the board and so i have installed a SATA PCI card in the PCI express slot to give me an extra 2 sata ports.
However, i am trying to install a 500GB 3.5" HDD and a 500GB 2.5" HDD. The problem is that BIOS is not recognizing them and niether is Windows 7 64bit.
Does anyone have a solution to this problem?
Also would it be possible to RAID 1 both of the above hard disks?
One hdd is a Samsung 2.5" 500GB 7200rpm 16MB and the other is a Western Digital 500GB 16MB Blue model.
it was one that came with a mobo, my mate gave me the card
Just so I understand clearly, the SATA2 PCIe card came packaged with a different motherboard?
If so, then your mate probably has the disk that contains the drivers for it. If you know the make/model of his motherboard you should be able to go to the manufacturers web site and download the drivers from there also.
