Recover data from SATA hd

  1. Hi!

    I am in the process of trying to recover data from a SATA drive. Ultimately I would like it to be a temporary Slave drive so that I can get the data.

    OS is XP Pro and System has IDE Master & Slave already.

    During boot the SATA drive is detected however then a RAID menu comes up to create RAID.

    Since I would like to preserve the data on the drive, I am reluctant to set up RAID. I really do not want to do that.

    Any guidance is Appreciated!!
    THX!

    In your BIOS there should be a place to turn RAID off for sata drives, then you'll be able to use it as a single drive.
