I'm currently trying to get this controller card working. My O/S is Win7 64, I've installed the Adaptec drivers, restarted. However, no hard drives are being detected (I've tried rescanning for disks in Disk Management control panel). Do I HAVE to have a RAID array for disks to be detected? If I contrast this with Startech 2 Port PCI Express Internal SATA II Controller Card [PEXSATA22I], the latter just detects the hard drives no questions asked. What am I doing wrong?

I have tried installing the Adaptec Storage Manager, but that says that there is no controller on the system. The manual says to create a RAID array in BIOS, but I never get the Ctrl+A prompt.
