Hey, I have a P4C800-E Deluxe Mother board, and I have 3 SATA drives, two of those drives are westerdigital raptors 36gb which are on the intel controllers, these are not set up on RAID, my third hard drive is on the promise 378 controller and is a 160 GB Westerdigital. Now what I want to do is use the 160gb drive for storage on its own. When the computer starts up, the raid controller recognizes it, but the bios (and windows) does not. How can I configure the 160GB drive for use.

Any help is greatly needed and appreciated

Thanks

Did you install the Promise driver? Go to Device Manager and click on "SCSI devices" or something like that. If it has "Promise" listed there, then it's just a bios setting. If not listed, install the driver by clicking on "update driver" under the SCSI listing and use the floppy that came with the mobo. Other than that, it's just a bios setting. I don't know the specifics of the Asus bios, so I can't tell you the exact setting.
