If I disabled this on her computer could the disk possibly boot up windows allowing me to transfer some things before it goes bad for good? Best thing after that would be to burn the important files to optical disc s as soon as possible. I reckon the disk is SATA 2. I know that I must be missing something simple here, but darned if I know what it is. Home Help Search Login Register. I did try the Ubuntu cd with ASUS and was impressed with it, but running computer with it, it showed drive but did not let me access it so it must be down for the count. Yes, we know she’s hot!

Mon Feb 23, 1: One option is to hit ctrl-Y to save this setting which i am guessing to do.

It is a RAID setup. You posted while Saya was still typing but as mentioned above it seems you need to download the drivers if you don’t have the floppy.

I was hoping to get a quick small drive to use for my XP mxi and programs for now but later I would like to be able to attatch a larger drive for storage. Results 1 to 5 of 5.

Under define array it gives first line as array 1 and then you select the Raid Mode, total drives capacity and status for the array 1.

I can’t say thanks enough for all the help everyone has posted here to help me out with this issue. Yes SCSI is right. So how is this done?

In device manager it shows a Promise device SCSI disk device which is the drive and says working properly but does not treat it as a drive where I can access it to take a look at the files on it even though it says it is working properly.

Sorry if long winded but just want to make sure. MSI is earthquakingly slow today, so I have trouble being more specific.

Obviously if the hard drive is not recognised it might be dead or corrupt. You could try jumper it to SATA 1.

I have a single drive on my promise raid controller, and if I delete a raid array, and reboot it will times auto setup the array for me, but I’m not sure about newer boards.

But keep in mind what you want to do with the second drive if it will be a RAID 0 Array its better to define this array with two drives first, bevor installing Windows otherwise you will have data loss.
