Did you disable the Promise controller and try it like I suggested earlier????? When powering up, and the bios detects first the boot drive and then the data drive it calls them VIA’s. I am three steps away from finding the inspiration in pursuing a fine spiraling career in alcoholism! I tried connecting an additional sata drive to sata1, but the MBFastBuild utility still only saw the original 3 drives, so that did me no good. Have you tried a new ribbon cable? I hope I included enough information to answer my questions, but if not, please let me know of any other info that would be helpful in addressing my current problems. Of course if you do not want to boot from the array then you may install the drivers later if needed.

One drive I boot from, the other is just for data.

Thank you so much for your time! If you could successfully build up the Array s at that level then the most important has been done, the next step being the installation of windows by using F6 to install the needed Promise controller v1.

So basically the 4 HDD’s should be connected to the Fasttrak controller! I hope I included enough information to answer my questions, but if not, please let me know of any s8v info that would be helpful in addressing my current problems.
asus a8v secondary promise RAID controller in IDE mode? – Ars Technica OpenForum
When powering up, and the bios detects first the boot drive and s8v the data drive it calls them VIA’s. Here is what I assume but it’s merely an assumption because I did NOT try it out and thus it’s mainly based on theoretical level, knowing that in IT matters there is only one truth: Along with this problem, I also have the issue with my OS reading said drives, as I gave gaid on having both raid options, and set them up rair raid0 performance and tried to install OS, I installed drivers as said from floppy, but XP still says cannot install it says it cannot find harddrive.

I tried connecting an additional sata drive to sata1, but the MBFastBuild utility still only saw the original 3 drives, so that did me no good. Virus Problem, Please Help.
If the drives are not there then you should verify the connections. I did notice something that now makes me wonder if i have the right driver installed tho. And last but not least one very important “detail” which troubled me quite a lot: And it comes from THIS webpage!
