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) =-]

ASUS P5LD2 Raid 5 locks windows at MUP.SYS


A stab in the dark. Sound like the MB BIOS expects and is written to have the OS on the  IDE  slot. After that I would add one SATA drive at a time to see if it matters and to see if one of the drives are causing the problem.

Cannot connect monitor to motherboard


the asus p5q-e motherboard doesn't come with a video card. teh e-SATA-1394 is the serial hard drive connection.
you need to get a ATI video card, since th edriver is ATI, it is much easier tooc onfigure than any other video car.
make sure to get the DVI-D video card.

I cant install my hdd sata


Under many cases, the default settings for additional onboard SATA/RAID controller could have been set to [Disabled] when delivered. This will cause the controller to stop its function completely. Suggestion: Please refer to your user’s manual for detailed description on how to enable onboard SATA/RAID controller via adjusting jumper or BIOS settings. Clean SATA cable with a couple cotton sticks lightly dipped into alcohol. If you sitll can not see the SATA drive from within the bios your onboard SATA/RAID controller is defective. Contact Asus tech M-F eastern time at: 812-282-2787. Tech will assign you a case number. Tech will than connect you to the RMA department for replacment/repair.

Sata/raid not working on ASUS M2N MB


You may need to set up the RAID array before it will be detected. Look in the BIOS and see if there is a way to set up the RAID array there. If there isn't, watch as the PC boots up and see if there is an option to go into the RAID settings before windows starts. You may need to actually create an array before it will be seen.

Using promise tx2 ultra133 ata/133 controller for raid (performance)


Well, first of all, the card only supports 2 drives from what I see... and secondly, the card doesn't do RAID either. This is the spec sheet that I made the determination from... http://www.promise.com/marketing/datasheet/file/Ultra133tx2DS_v3.pdf. If I'm mistaken about what the device is, please provide more information about the card that you have. If I have the correct card, then unfortunately you'll have to get another card. If you'll tell me what your technical requirements and financial restrictions are, maybe I can give you some advice on what to purchase.
