Question about MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR (MS-6570-030) Motherboard
I purchased two new Hitachi Deskstar 320 gig drives with the intention of replacing the IDE Drives in my current machine & reinstalling my XP operating system. Disconnected both hard drives connected one Sata drive to the SER1 interface port set the bios to boot from CDROM inserted my operations system disk and switched on but was told my system had no hard drive present. Switched off restarted went into the bios and asked it to search for hard drive but it did not find one. Wondering if there was a need to format the new drive I reconnected the Primary drive with OS and connected the Sata drive to the SER2 interface started up machine entered bios which told me no secondary drive was connected What do I do next Please????? Walter
Did you check to make sure the sata interface in the bios is on. Not the RAID, just the sata. In the bios settings you'll find it under "Intergrated Peripherals/IDE Device Configuration". Make sure you enable both SATA1/SATA2 and SATA3/SATA4 if your not sure what plug you have your drive plugged into. Good luck.

You will need to hit F6 at the beginning of the windows install process to load the SATA/RAID drivers from floppy disk (assuming your system has a floppy drive and you have the drivers on a floppy disk). The alternative is to slipstream an xp install disk with the needed drivers. The easiest way to do that is using the free utility called nLite (http://www.nliteos.com/).
