SATA Drive - Problems on ASUS K8V SE

  1. Hello,
    I have a ASUS K8V SE MOBO which supports SATA primary and secondary drives, as well as RAID configruations. I currently have Windows XP with a 160 GIG IDE Drive as primary. I bought a SATA drive (300 G, WD) in the hope of making it a secondary drive for data.

    The MOBO comes with PRomise RAID controller, but I am still unable to setup the new SATA drive. I have enabled the Promise controller in the BIOS Setup, but as the machine boots, the controller reports on Devices found. I have connected the drive to the Primary SATA connector.

    Has anyone had similar experiences?. Can anyone guide me as to how to set up this drive as a Primary SATA drive.

    Bye

    Hi and welcome to Techspot. Since you have two different-sized drives, you will not be needing the RAID controller. Disable it, and everything should work fine.
