You need to go to ASUS to get a bios update. Since your board only appears to support SATA 1, it probably has the older bios that tops off at about 380mb. drives. (I don't think that a bios update will give you Sata 2 as that is hardware limited)
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 :)
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.
I would try the hard drive on another sata controller/port to verify that the bad drive is in fact bad. If it is really bad, then no there is nothing you can do but replace the drive and recreate the array (losing all data!).
You can not 'recover' a failed RAID-0 array because there is no parity or mirror data on an extra disk like there is with the other RAID modes. This is why people recommend against using RAID-0 for important data (unless you take frequent backups): RAID-0 actually increases your likelihood of losing your data. Statistically speaking, you are multiply the failure rates of each individual drive together.
hi, you need not have to upgrade the BIOS,, set the SATA HD on the IDE channel in the BIOS, or what options r avilable for SATA controller, if it is set to RAID, you will need a raid utility to format the SATA, or it wont shoe in windows, let ,e know
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.
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.
