So my problem is that the Windows Setup won’t detect my hard drive as its installed through the PCI slot. Look at the troubles you have and isn’t that enough to return it and get something else? If I disconnect the drive, I get just this: Might have just been a driver version thing. As soon as I start my PC I get the bios screen recognising my video card for a few seconds, then it switches to my pc manufacturer bios screen during the ram and other system checks and then it goes to the Satalink bios screen for another 10secs. The reason why the above message annoys the hell out of me is because it takes an extra seconds to boot up or after a restart.

Sorry for the long post, or if I didn’t provide enough detail.

I tried a PS2 keyboard – got the same results. The keyboard works fine. The bios on the SilA card has been updated to the latest, but the computer still will not boot. The sata HDD seems to work perfectly in Windows.

So the drive is good, there’s no doubt about that. The reason why the above message annoys the hell out of me is because it takes an extra seconds to boot up or after a restart. Sorry, there was a problem flagging this post.

Full system details here: Thanks a lot for the suggestion. Proffitt Forum moderator October 28, Yes I have the silent boot mode setup in the bios. Not so much a PCI card issue.

No problem with my card here have a SH-SB connected there. Thank you everyone for your help. Try enabling that but do go try a PS2 keyboard. Virus Problem, Please Help. OK, my bad assumption. Windows booted up fine, and I was able to format it with the “Manager” pull-down when I right-clicked on “My Computer”. I guess the fact that the motherboard is almost 10yrs old might explain the slightly extended boot time then.

Does someone know how I saha disable this really annoying RAID message which appears immediately after the standard system checks during bootup:. Waiting for advice before I proceed.

Proffitt Forum moderator October 7, Now that I’m warned you off here it is. I don’t want to do a low-level format, since I have windows still on the drive, and none of the other options 352a.

Well I know that if I flashed it and messed it up, I would just be able to return it, since I plan to do so anyways. Once the formatting was done, Windows recognized it just fine.
