Nope, I have 4 sata ports off the nvidia controler and 1 sata + 1 sata on the go port off the silicon image chip. I do not have both power connectors in. I will plug them into the silicon image controler one at a time to see if I can get them up. Thanks for the help.

sry about the dubble post...

I went to put one of the drives on the SI connector, rebooted and got an error. IT said that my bios' chec sum was bad and that his utility was going to recover it. I needed to put a copy of the bios onto a CD or floppy. I put it on a floppy stuck it in ad it said reading a8n32sli.rom and it hangs there. I have tried resetting the cmos. How do I fix this?

I think your mobo should just be able to recognize your drives w/o any drivers

Well lets see what I can do to confuse this even more. Here is what I did to set it up.

I will assume the BIOS has detected that the HDs are there and are on SATA 1 and 2. Go to IDE confiuration and enabel SATA 1 and 2. Enable the nVidia RAID Function. Enable SATA 1 and 2 under that. I saw that you turned off the Silcon image controller. Save and exit. Reboot. F10 during POST. You should be in the nVidia RAID program. You should not need any floppy until the Windows XP install.

I have my drives plugged into SATA 1 and 2 on the board. I had no trouble getting this to go on this mobo at all. From the looks of it you have followed what I posted above. If all else fail RTFM amigo, that is what I did. Starts on page 5-27.

Check your BIOS falshing direction carefully. On the older ASUS MBs you had to change the name of the BIOS file you are using to flash

I will keep this in mind. I tried to flash it off the CD that came with the mobo, which worked to some degree. Now when it comes on and posts, then tells be that the cmos checksum is incorrect. It gives me the option to press F1 to enter the bios, of F2, continue to boot. I can change any setting I want and save it to the cmos; however, it will erase the settings when you reboot like you reset the cmos. My battery is in all the way and is showing a charge of 2.99 volts.

The good news is I know what was keeping me from running raid. You can't have any of the IDE drives set up as masters untill the raid array is in place.
