SATA conflict


T

Terry

I have a KT7A RAID mobo. It comes with the old IDE RAID connectors
and I am not using these. I also have 3 IDE hard drives installed and
working fine.

I just installed a PCI SATA RAID controller card that comes with two
SATA ports. I hooked a SATA drive to the primary controller.

Now when I boot I get a message that says the card is installed and
reports the drive, but then hangs. Secondary channel: Drive not
found. It says hit F4 for RAID options, but hitting F4 does nothing

reset your boot sequence

reset your boot sequence

I have looked through the bios. I have an option to boot from other
disabled. The bios is set to boot from hd0 which is the way it was.

Booting with the new hard drive plugged into the card hangs the
machine.

When I plug in the drive and check the bios it is not listed. I
assume this would be "boot from other"

In the old days of scsi, the bios of the controller had an option to enable or disable the
ability for it to be seen as a boot device.
I have not had the need to use an expansion card for SATA yet so Its a guess.
