  1. Hi,

    I just recently purchased two new SATA hard drives and was able to set both of them to PRI MAS and SEC MAS and have my optical drive set to 3RD MAS. I am able to boot from the windows cd and it gets to the load screen and after a longer then usual wait time it gets to the screen and says "Windows cannot find one or more mass storage devices".

    Im lost here guys whats up?,
