Question about MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR (MS-6570-030) Motherboard
I purchased two new Hitachi Deskstar 320 gig drives with the intention of replacing the IDE Drives in my current machine & reinstalling my XP operating system. Disconnected both hard drives connected one Sata drive to the SER1 interface port set the bios to boot from CDROM inserted my operations system disk and switched on but was told my system had no hard drive present. Switched off restarted went into the bios and asked it to search for hard drive but it did not find one. Wondering if there was a need to format the new drive I reconnected the Primary drive with OS and connected the Sata drive to the SER2 interface started up machine entered bios which told me no secondary drive was connected What do I do next Please????? Walter
Did you check to make sure the sata interface in the bios is on. Not the RAID, just the sata. In the bios settings you'll find it under "Intergrated Peripherals/IDE Device Configuration". Make sure you enable both SATA1/SATA2 and SATA3/SATA4 if your not sure what plug you have your drive plugged into. Good luck.

You will need to hit F6 at the beginning of the windows install process to load the SATA/RAID drivers from floppy disk (assuming your system has a floppy drive and you have the drivers on a floppy disk). The alternative is to slipstream an xp install disk with the needed drivers. The easiest way to do that is using the free utility called nLite (http://www.nliteos.com/).

Tips for a great answer:
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your "((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause this problem
follow the troubleshooting procedure a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every device and to have an end to be able work properly
a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working also it could be a dirty computer clean all of the dust from your computer you could use a vacuum cleaner but whatever you use make absolutely sure there is no moisture gets to anything in your computer and before you touch anything be sure to wear an earth strap hope this helps
