I might guess two things: 1. the battery failed (and has been replaced), 2. the motherboard has both SATA and IDE sockets for hard disks and you are using IDE.
If the latter, (and the BIOS settings were lost when the battery went) the BIOS setting would default to SATA hard disks and produce the mesage in the POST screen of, 'The number of disks is not adequate to create a RAID array' and no keys will work in the POST screen except ESC.
Repeatedly press DELETE (on most computers) on start up, ignore the POST screen, and the BIOS settings screen will come up. Check the date and reset, then goto INTERGRATED PERIPHERALS and reset SATA to IDE, save and exit. This cured my problem.

Some mother boards say that they have raid enabled but it isn't, for other mother boards u just have to get the latest bios update, u can either do that by getting the bios update program for your motherboard from its site or by downloading the update and doing it yourself, but the program is safer and has less errors.

Is there any way to update BIOS, or any alternative method to provide SATA RAID drivers during Setup thru Floppy. Can I use my Pen Drive or CD to supply RAID Drivers


No you can't update the BIOS for that. But yes, you can load them on an USB memory stick and load it from there.
Or you can create a customized install disk as shown here

Replaced battery, now goes to POST & unable to create RAID


BIOS needs set up again. Look @ hard drive setup in particular. If you have SATA drives the put them in IDE mode.

Trying to create a server using the ASRock k7vt6 mobo


turns out the RAID enable in the bios is also used to enable the SATA. but this doesn't mean you have to use RAID to use SATA drives! there's a separate bios to configure the RAID that you can access after the initial boot screen by pressing tab. here, you can delete an existing array or create a new one. deleting the array makes the motherboard see both drives separately, like I wanted. problem solved :)

Can't create RAID


It sounds like you have created an install disk. It also sounds like you pressed F6 to install additional drivers. Your install disk probably has 2 drivers on it. You must install them separately. So--you will have to tell the install program twice to install each driver in turn. Once you do that, it should work.

you need to go into your bios and change it from RAID mode to IDE(yes i know youre using a sata). when your computer first turns on you should be able to see which key you need to press to enter your bios.

Abit th7raid motherboard-160GB HD cannot recognize-needs flashing-out of my depth!


Hi coonster,

Abit TH7 Raid driver.

Windows inability to see all of your hard disk drive is not a motherboard issue.
It’s a windows issue. ( I suggest you use the hard disk drive software from the manufacture’s web site). Most allow you to download software that allows you to create a bootable floppy disk. Boot to this disk & setup the drive in a dos like window.
Once completed you can now boot to the windows CD. Do not allow windows to format
the drive.
That is what the manufactures disk will do for you. Install windows & please update it fully. Windows should see all of the 160GB after updating.
If you feel you need to update the bios, feel free to do so.
Follow Abit’s instructions on how to update the bios from this link;
http://fae.abit.com.tw/eng/download/bios/index_old.htm#486

If you have never downloaded a bios file or drivers from this site it can be a bit confusing. You’ll need to high-light the entire link below, than right click once to open the pop-up window. Than left click copy. Open internet explorer. Right click once in the address window & left click past. Than press the enter key on your keyboard. The site has a timer on the left side of the page. You’ll have to wait for it to reach zero.
Than a yellow bar will open across the top of the page that says, (To help protect your security, Internet Explorer blocked this site from downloading files to your computer. Click here for options...). Right click once on the yellow bar & left click download file. Create a folder on your desktop & name the folder " Drivers". Download the file named " infinst_enu.zip" into the driver folder. Us any uncompressing program & uncompress the file keeping the files within the driver folder. The action of uncompressing the *.zip file will create another folder named " Disk1".

http://www.nodevice.com/driver/download.html

To download the Abit TH7 Raid bios is done like the instructions above. For this bios file you’ll need to do the same with the link below;
Abit TH7 Raid bios file name " th736.exe ".

http://www.updrivers.com/getbios/Motherboard/Abit/TH7-Raid-BIOS/6187.html

Please retype verification code: "enter code listed on site".
Press enter.
Again create a folder on your desktop & name it Abit bios.

You will not find any drivers, bios or manuals directly from Abit. They no longer support this motherboard.

Good luck!
Mike
