ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe - Can I use the RAID ports as normal drives?

The subsystem controlling the standard Sata ports on my trusty old Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe just failed, but I'm trying to work around it my using the red RAID ports. Is it possible to force the BIOS to see them as regular ports? If not, is there a way to use only one of these ports to install Win XP? I can configure a single drive jbod array, but the Win XP install doesn't see it.

    Do you are installing Windows XP SP3?

  4. malmental is wrong. the red ports CAN be used as single drive not in raid. this can be done by going into the NVIDIA not the silicon image raid controller configuration during the boot up secquence and setting the single drive as a JBOD.
