Question about Maxtor Ultra ATA/133 PCI Adapter Card (999812) IDE Controller

1 Answer

Hello, I have a PCI Ultra Ata/133 Dual IDE card. I have two Ide devices hooked to it. Everytime I hook it up in the system My regular Motherboard IDE says can't be read, reboot. I am trying to get not Raid but Two IDE devices to be available in my Vista system. I had same problem in Win XP, Now I have installed Vista hoping the driver problem would be solved. In order for my PC to even boot normal, I have to uplug both dual IDE cables from my Ultra ATA/ 133 card. Thanks, Professor Yonce.. Whats your suggestion?

    It acts like no Disk can be found. It can not find even my Motherboard IDE when I have the 133 dual IDE board plugged in.

    I see the Controller card wanting to boot each time instead of my Motherboard IDE.
    I have to disconnect the IDE ribbon cable each time if I want the Motherboard IDE to boot.
    It says in my Bios that I have a Raid controller.
    I do not want a Raid controller, I want a dual IDE controller.
    I even switched the two hard drives. I put the One that was connected to my Motherboard onto y add on PCI controller card and it boots okay.
    I have a special key to press to boot up on the one I deside, All the Hard drives are listed including the CD-Rom as a boot. but it ignores the choice I make and tries to boot from the ATA controller 133 Ultra card instead.
    Thanks for your help. I need to know how to flash or erase my E-Prom Bios and unplug the Add on 133 ATA card and reboot and let the PC install a new driver, I do not want the Raid driver, I want the Dual IDE controller driver. I tried that and even deletted my Device driver in my Hard drive manager and rebooted with the card out of the machine, Then I powered down the PC and plugged back in the 133 ATA controller card and my Boot still shows the Raid driver.

    Are you using the PCI2IDE to connect your boot drive (Primary Master)?

    What kind of errors do you get if you leave the IDE cables plugged in and boot up your machine?

Sounds like the system is trying to boot from the drives attached to the controller. Go into your setup and make sure the system is set to boot from the proper drive.

    >I see the Controller card wanting to boot each time instead of my Motherboard IDE.

    This is because of your motherboard's BIOS settings. It needs to be set to the proper drive.

    >I have to disconnect the IDE ribbon cable each time if I want the Motherboard IDE to boot.

    No, you don't. Set the system BIOS. When you installed the controller, your BIOS detected it and assumed you want to boot from it.

    >It says in my Bios that I have a Raid controller.

    This is probably just a generic term. If you have not formatted the drives for RAID operation, then I would assume that to be the case. I don't think your BIOS can detect this. This setting in the BIOS sometimes listed SCSI as the option because that was the most common add in controller. Most people doing what you are doing are using it for RAID, so that's the name they use.

    >I do not want a Raid controller, I want a dual IDE controller.

    You're probably fine. This probably has to be set in the controller card's BIOS.

    >I
    even switched the two hard drives. I put the One that was connected to
    my Motherboard onto y add on PCI controller card and it boots okay.

    This confirms my diagnosis. Just watch your system at startup and it will tell you the key to press to enter setup, usually or an F key. Then, enter the settings screen and select the drive you want to boot from. This menu item should say RAID presently, from what you are saying. Again, this does not indicate RAID operation, but rather a RAID capable controller.

    >I
    have a special key to press to boot up on the one I deside, All the
    Hard drives are listed including the CD-Rom as a boot. but it ignores
    the choice I make and tries to boot from the ATA controller 133 Ultra
    card instead.

    Hopefully, changing the settings in the system BIOS will fix the boot problem.

    >Thanks for your help. I need to know how to flash or
    erase my E-Prom Bios and unplug the Add on 133 ATA card and reboot and
    let the PC install a new driver, I do not want the Raid driver, I want

    Device driver in my Hard drive manager and rebooted with the card out
    of the machine, Then I powered down the PC and plugged back in the 133
    ATA controller card and my Boot still shows the Raid driver.

    It's not a driver issue or else you wouldn't have been able to boot from the drive that was connected to your motherboard when you hooked it up to the add in card. You do not need to flash anything as far as I can tell.

I cannot find a driver anywhere for my belkin f5u098 ide raid controller.


The drivers for this ATA Controller Card are resident in Windows, just like the Motherboard's onboard ATA/IDE Controller. If they don't autodetect and load make sure you are running at least Service Pack 2 for Windows XP and SP4 for Win 2000. Vista and later will have resident drivers.

Vista drivers needed for Ultra ATA/133 IDE RIAD controller card


You can plug it in and see if Vista can use any of its drivers for it. In many cases it has drivers for the chipset on the card which will work perfectly well with the device.

Installing a 2 port ATA-133 IDE adapter card to a desktop w/a hard drive & DVD


I don't think you can boot off of the ATA-133 so you will have to boot off of the IDE on the mobo and have the DVD drive jumpered cable select on the 2nd IDE. Boot that way to make sure the system boots. Shut down. Then instll the ATA-133 adapter with NO DRIVES on it and boot. The system should ask you for drivers for the new hardware. Intall the drivers. Shut down. Attach the new drives to the ATA-133. Reboot. You still might have to go into admin in windows and assign drive letters to the new drives. Anyway, if you are trying to boot off of a drive on the ATA-133 adapter, I don't think you can do it. I have mostly used Asus boards with Award Bios and there was no way to point the boot process to an add-on ATA Controller.
