Pci ide raid card problem

My pci raid card finds my drives sometimes. When I am in windows xp pro I can find all of my hds in windows explorer but then they will disappear and the system will lock up. When I reboot 1 or 2 of the drives on the raid controller card won't show up at boot. I have tried different raid cards (Maxtor and Silicon Image) and I have installed new ribbon cables to the drives twice and this doesn't seem to make any difference.

System:
Windows XP Pro (SP2)
Intel pentium 4 CPU 3.4GHz
2 gig ram
Radeon 9800XT video
Integrated audio
Silicon Image pci raid controller card

I have a Dell Optiplex 170L mnitower. It has one IDE and one SATA port. I have connected a 1 TB drive to the sata and disconnected the ide drive that came with the system. No I am thinking, what if I add...


Hi there! You don't actually need a IDE to SATA converter. If you purchase a RAID 1 card, it gets hooked up to your computer via PCI or PCI-E. The RAID card will have at least two SATA ports on it - those are what you use to create your RAID. The sata port and ide port on the computer will not be used in the raid1 configuration. If you're going to go ahead with this, I'd recommend trying to find the exact same brand and model of drive as the first one you have. Also, keep in mind that creating a RAID 1 array requires formatting BOTH drives. Your Optiplex 170 only has PCI ports, so this may be a viable RAID card. It is fairly inexpensive, but will do the job. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816132001&cm_re=PCI_RAID-_-16-132-001-_-Product If you need any more help/advice let me know!

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.

There is a glitch on those AV7 boards ata controler I think. Check the website for the new drivers supposedly they help, but all they did was crash my raid after I installed them. I ended up cloning the whole raid over to a single large sata drive and put in an ide to sata card (non raid unfortunately) and the problem went away. I only had the problem under very heavy disk loading. It seemed to not be quite so bad when I added some additional cooling aimed at the motherboard. As to if it will help your software problem I am unsure. However the only time mine did the mini dump was when I was doing heavy video editing work and after nixing the raid it fixed it, But then again a bad drive in a raid can cause that also.

Pci ide controller for third hard disk


You need to enter into scsi bios first, then do an autodetect for hard drive, this will set the IDE/SCSI hard drive on raid controller.

To enter SCSI control you need to press the same key stated on screen on startup (F6 I assume) I think F3 is just boot settings.

If the card do not enter regularly in CMOS settings for the raid then this card is defective.

SATA RAID Controller Card Problem?


You are almost there. Go into your BIOS and enable RAID. Then your raid bios should show up on next boot.

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 had the same problem with an Intellistation 6868 for years. It just wouldn't load XP but ran fine on Windows 2000 SP4. I tried 3 different XP Installation CD's with no luck. After several attempts at installing XP I bought a clean XP Upgrade from ebay.

It took me 3 goes to install it but eventually I got it in there. If you can get XP to start on the 6868 press F8 and start it in safe mode first then when it's booted fully, shut it down and and then start it clean again. It worked for me. I've been running it for 5 months now and it's fine.

I couldn't get it to work at all on the 6868's onboard IDE so I installed a PCI Raid Card and it boots fine on that.
