    Do you have any hard drives attached to the card? If not, then at bootup, which is where I assume you are seeing the message, the drivers are not installed.

Ultra ata 100.. ide cable .. may be bad.. or the controller on the motherboard is causing the issue

try to pull the ide cable off the board.. do ya see the bios then???

if so first replace with a different 80pin ide cable.. or buy a new one..

test the drives attached to the ide ribbon gray cable in another chassis... if the all is good.. and you still can not reach the bios..

use the clear cmos or bios directions on the gx280 manual online at dell

else the motheboard has gone bad

64 bit driver promise ultra


There is no official Window 7 driver for the Promise Technology Ultra 133 TX2, but you can use the Vista driver. It should also work for both the Ultra 66 and the Ultra 100 cards.
I found the Vista driver at:
http://www.promise.com/single_page_session/page.aspx?region=en-US&m=722&sub_m=sub_m_9&rsn=144
The file name is: Ultra133 TX2 windows 2.1.0.3 logo driver.rar
This file is compressed in the rar format. I decompressed it using 7-Zip. Folder amd64 contains the 64 bit driver. The amd64 driver worked even though my mother board has an Intel CPU and chip set.

Conflict between Promise Ultra133 and SATA RAID controller


Check that your RAID controller and onboard SATA controller aren't in a compatibility mode. You can put them in this mode while you have no SATA driver installed in Windows.

This tricks Windows into seeing the SATA drives as regular IDE drives. Your BIOS then has a spasm when it see's another IDE controller there, and just uses the card instead.

Make sure the SATA drivers are installed first, otherwise anything SATA will stop showing up. (and your Windows just won't boot if it's on a SATA disk and you take compatibility mode off) =-]

Unable to install XP sp2 on Intel D865GBF Motherboard


Maybe having trouble with a device, remove any pci or agp cards and usb devices, use built-in video until installed.

Set bios to defaults, make sure bios is latest version.

I have found this happens with a promise ultra-100tx2 and any nvidia video card.

May be a bad install cd, if you can boot it with a dos or win98 disk/CD, copy xp i386 folder to hard drive install from i386 folder on hdd by running winnt.exe

I have installed xpsp2 on about 10 d865gbf's and 2 days ago installed xp sp3 on one with no problems. may also be bad mobo.
