Maxtor Dimond plus 9 SATA 200 gb drive x 2

  cthompso 08:35 13 Jun 2004


I was recently forced to upgrade my motherboard to MSI 865g Neo2 LS as my old one died.

With this board it has 2 SATA sockets (marked TATA 1 & 2) as I understand this is for raid 0. So as we all do, I go out and get 2 x 200 GB HDD. After a lot of messing about and phoning the MB supplier, to get the board to acknowledge the HDD. Now I can only see 1 HDD in my computer. It shows DSK2_Vol 1 (189GB)

I understand if you put 2 HDD in SATA sockets 1 & 2 it goes to raid 0 so you get the speed but it thinks there is only one HDD but shouldn’t it show 400 GB?

Or is the computer not detecting the 2 HDD.

Have you installed the raid driver
Have you done a clean instal
