I have the same system and here is how to get around it.

1. During the Windows XP CD boot, it prompts you if you want to load additional drivers (you must have these on a floppy). If you have the proper driver, the installer will recognize the RAID controller and your drives will be visible,

2. If you cannot get the drivers, simply swap the cables so that your install CD and HD are on the non-RAID connectors, these are the lower set closest to the floppy connector (mine are blue). Don't worry if you use this method, the BIOS will boot from the RAID properly after the system is installed.

The floppy light being on all the time indicates that the data cable is plugged in backwards.

This problem is very simple.... Using RAID in booting in cd/dvd cannot be done in this kind of processing. you have to change the setting of Hard Disk and CD/DVD to IDE in BIOS . To change the setting in the BIOS you need to press the Delete After you power on the computer.. In Main menu in the bios you will find the hard disk or cd/dvd settings to IDE, SATA, and RAID. change both hard disk and cd/dvd to IDE configuration. make sure the first boot in the Boot menu is the cd/dvd, where your windows cd installer is inserted. Save the settings by pressing F10 key in the keyboard.. I have the same problem as of you because i try it to change SATA, RAID but cannot boot to cd and cannot detect the hard disk when installing OS, but in IDE settings its okay.. and it works perfect.. after you installed the windows properly, you can change the Hard Disk or cd/dvd configuration to SATA or RAID. TY

HOPE I CAN HELP

I need the manual for the Abit TH7 raid motherboard to match the 1.4G intel Pentium 4 processor


The old Abit TH7 RAID mobo, ay?

http://www.motherboards.org/reviews/motherboards/925_2.html


The Socket 478 motherboard uses an Intel 82850 Northbridge chip, and Intel 82801BA Southbridge chip, for the motherboard chipset.
(ICH2 is 82801BA)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_chipsets

(Intel's term for their Northbridge chip is MCH. Memory Controller Hub,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northbridge_%28computing%29

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of the computer.
The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities.

The Northbridge chip handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.
AGP and PCI-Express are high-speed graphics.

{The Abit TH7 RAID mobo has an Accelerated Graphics Port expansion slot, for a graphics card. AGP)

A graphics (Video) card inserted into a PCI expansion slot, or Integrated Graphics,
is Not high-speed graphics.

(Integrated Graphics is also referred to as OnBoard Graphics.
On the motherBoard )

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

As you can see in the chart on Wikipedia the FSB support for the Intel 850 chipset (Intel 82850) is 400MHz.

In conclusion, you know now that you can use an Intel Pentium 4 processor,
A) That fits in a Socket 478 processor socket,

B) Has a maximum Front Side Bus frequency rate ('Speed') of 400MegaHertz. (FSB 400MHz)

Here is a link to the Motherboard Manual (PDF file format),

I an trying to set up raid 0 with two 500 gig wd hard drives on my abit awd9-max on a new install. I am running xp.raid is enabeled in bios. I hit f6 on windows setup installs dirvers but seems to be a...


In bios make sure the raid chipset is active. Ususally there's 2 one needs drivers one doesn't. I use the one that doesn't then in bios there should be a way to set up your array. Raid 0 is striping mode so you should only see one hard drive,the d drive should be the cd/dvd device. If this is right then you did it right.If it were raid 1 then you would see both hard drives,because one is mirroring the main drive for backup.

IDE Primary Master/Slave NONE


Hook the two together on the one working IDE connector. Put your hard drive as the first device on the ribbon cable and make it the master using the jumper at the back. Hook the DVD to the second and set it's jumper to slave. Install your OS then try to figure what's up.

Abit th7raid motherboard-160GB HD cannot recognize-needs flashing-out of my depth!


Hi coonster,

Abit TH7 Raid driver.

Windows inability to see all of your hard disk drive is not a motherboard issue.
It’s a windows issue. ( I suggest you use the hard disk drive software from the manufacture’s web site). Most allow you to download software that allows you to create a bootable floppy disk. Boot to this disk & setup the drive in a dos like window.
Once completed you can now boot to the windows CD. Do not allow windows to format
the drive.
That is what the manufactures disk will do for you. Install windows & please update it fully. Windows should see all of the 160GB after updating.
If you feel you need to update the bios, feel free to do so.
Follow Abit’s instructions on how to update the bios from this link;
http://fae.abit.com.tw/eng/download/bios/index_old.htm#486

If you have never downloaded a bios file or drivers from this site it can be a bit confusing. You’ll need to high-light the entire link below, than right click once to open the pop-up window. Than left click copy. Open internet explorer. Right click once in the address window & left click past. Than press the enter key on your keyboard. The site has a timer on the left side of the page. You’ll have to wait for it to reach zero.
Than a yellow bar will open across the top of the page that says, (To help protect your security, Internet Explorer blocked this site from downloading files to your computer. Click here for options...). Right click once on the yellow bar & left click download file. Create a folder on your desktop & name the folder " Drivers". Download the file named " infinst_enu.zip" into the driver folder. Us any uncompressing program & uncompress the file keeping the files within the driver folder. The action of uncompressing the *.zip file will create another folder named " Disk1".

http://www.nodevice.com/driver/download.html

To download the Abit TH7 Raid bios is done like the instructions above. For this bios file you’ll need to do the same with the link below;
Abit TH7 Raid bios file name " th736.exe ".

http://www.updrivers.com/getbios/Motherboard/Abit/TH7-Raid-BIOS/6187.html

Please retype verification code: "enter code listed on site".
Press enter.
Again create a folder on your desktop & name it Abit bios.

You will not find any drivers, bios or manuals directly from Abit. They no longer support this motherboard.

Good luck!
Mike
