I wonder if anyone can help please, I recently changed my PC to an AMD64. 3400+ with twin 160GB SATA drives on a VIA controller. When I had the PC new, in my computer 2 Hds were visible, C & D. not sure of the set up, ((SATA, PATA RAID) wise. Sorry I’m having problem getting my head round these names.)
Never having had twin SATA drives before I was trying to figure out how to recover in the event a potential disaster, trying set-ups from RAID stripping, RAID Mirror, & RAID JAOD which once you get the hang of it seems no major problem. But with all these set ups only one hard drive is visible in my computer. The only problem I seem to have is getting back to the original set-up, showing 2 Hds in my computer C & D any help would be much appreciated.
you don't say whether you have been "fiddling" inside the box. If so you may have dislodged one of the sata cables. Presumably one drive needs to be set as a slave as in pata drives. Also is your bios set correctly for sata drives.
Hi Rayuk Re enabled one at a time SATA then RAID, in BIOS in Intergrated periferals, but using the Promise 376/378 when loading Windows it does not find any Hds. I think this is caused by the missing Realtek Fast Track thing, it's always telling me it's not in the BIOS
