HOW TO CONFIGURE RAID

Hi...I have a NFORCE4-A939 motherbooard. I have 4 hard disk drives installed.....3 of which are SATA drives,...and one DVD Burner. Problem is I cannot get to see all the drives in my computer. Someone told me that the board can only take 2 SATA drives unless RAID is configured. How do I configure RAID on the board ?
I want to run one of the drives on RAID...so I can connect another EIDE DVD Drive.
Thank you

I needed to see your board & can at this site. http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=493&DetailName=Manual&MenuID=1&LanID=0

This is good for you as well. It shows me & you that your board can handel 4 each DMA/ATA-133 (Ultra) IDE Hard drives/ CD/DVD drives IDE-1Primary & IDE-2 Primary Slave. Each can run 2 IDE drives. Also 4 each Serial ATA SATA's. Two separate SATA controllers with integrated PHYs, each supporting two
drives in master mode. In your manual on pg.32 & 33 will help you to setup a RAID if you wish. Or you can also set the RAID to IDE which will allow you to use all your SATA hard disks as a single drive without setting up a RAID system. The site above supplies all your drivers needed & manual. If you need more help please let me know here.
Luck!

Boot failure asus a7v 133 motherboard installed a pci sata raid


Hi whistler1410, you need to enter your bios menu. Press the delete key every couple of seconds to load the bios menu.

Once in the bios (See instructions located at the bottom of the menu, to help you move about).
You should see all connected drives at the main menu.
This includes the SATA writer & hard disk drives.
Go to the bios menu, BOOT.
SATA drive even DVD drives are seen by the bios as a master drive. So within the BOOT menu go to "Boot device priority".
The boot priority should read as follows.

First boot device [Floppy disk drive] (If one is connected)
Second boot device [Your SATA DVD writer]
Third boot device [Your primary hard disk drive] (The drive with windows loaded on it).
If you do not have a floppy disk drive than make the first boot device your DVD writer.
Save the bios & exit the bios. You should not receive "boot disk error message anymore".

Run into a problem, post here.
Good luck whistler1410!

Nforce4 a939 power led comes on, but nothing else


I am on an nforce asus an32-sli premium, with a 939 in it right now you need a 450 -500V power supply. they are resourse hogs, also are you running anything into the cable or ribbon that the main drive is on, if so try running just the drive and nothing else plugged into the MB as a master 0. Don't forget to connect the sata if you are running sata. let me know if it boots in that config, also clear the cmos and pop the battery prior to booting.

ABit-Th7 raid Drivers


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

How can I setup sata drivers using cd or dvd


Hi, I think the problem lies with your bios setting. Set the POST to first boot from the CD/DVD drive. If it is set to first boot from the CD/DVD drive, then the problem comes from the disk. It might not be a bootable disk. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Thanks, Mike H

Sata DVD burner


This is happening because the DVD SATA is booting like a first drive instead of the IDE Drive.
Be sure that your SATA drive is connected to a right port on your motherboard.
Go to your bios and into the boot options be sure that the IDE drive boot first than the SATA DVD.
******************************
Another way is connecting an adaptor SATA to IDE and connect your SATA DVD Drive as second IDE on your motherboard.

******************************
This will be fixing your problem.


Have a great day
