I tried to attach it to my trusty K7N2 board on my personal computer and do a check on the disk and see if I can get back any data which is very precious. Sorry if long winded but just want to make sure. So no worry about re-formating the damaged drive before I get the info from it. Mas with the drive model listed which is the bad drive I want to access, the capacity of the drive which is correct and Assignment N. If you don’t have the Promise floppy that came with the MB you can download here:

Never rely on HDD for permanent storage of important stuff.

I reckon the disk is SATA 2. Your computing wife will need another disk, so you could wait and attach the suspected drive later to her system. You posted while I was still typing but as mentioned above it seems you need to download the drivers if sataa don’t have the floppy.

Maybe I have this all wrong but isn’t sata raid setup for adding a disk to run along and mirror another disk with the same info which improves performance and you have a back up if one or the other crashes? I wanted to set up sata on my MSI motherboard computer so eata could read a damaged drive that is having issues from another computer and save the data. Please login or register. Mxi your computing friend in life gotten herself a new disk yet?

Under define array it gives first line as array 1 and then you select the Raid Mode, total drives capacity and status for the array 1. The sata setup was just to have the ability to read the nsi and thus wanting to have sata running.

One other thing, have you tried to run WD Data Lifeguard to see what it swta as far as what might be wrong wih the drive? Thank you all for the responses and help. Like always, any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.

But you can do slipstream XP installation disk and to include the necessary drivers. I have not yet been able to find m7n2 guide, just the SATA drivers and if so where would I find them?

I know its here somewhere I think but cannot find the exact command to activate sata. Thank you so much for staying with me on this. Because I am guessing in this setup, really do not need windows right now for anything so I get a new hard drive and copy the damaged drive info to it using this sataraid set up? The first one with the 3 ide. And making the single drive false raid 0 array would be done in the advanced bios settings?

Concern is the drive may be to large but I think I had larger drives on machine in the past. And what you found is the controller, which seems to work well. Ok, set it up in the array settings on boot. Thank you very much for response. You are correct Sharp about it setting up at the cluster size of 64 KB and was not aware it could hurt the existing drive with info on it. Issue there is you access this in Auto set up Option 1 under the fastbuild utility Main Menu.

I would guess the drivers not installed controls this correct? If not I would guess I enter the define array and set the 0 array up which does nothing but lets me add a new sata drive to the mix which is the damaged one and not copy any files from the existing hard drive running saata the MSI onto it and then hopefully will be able to then read the data I want off of it. It is said max GB, but if it can handle that it should be able to handle bigger disks, too.

Any thoughts on this or do you feel after doing as you suggest it will not ask me safa re-format drive?

After your response to driver question, what you are saying is take a jumper and attach it to the pins on back of hard drive marked 1 and 2 and then take sata connector and put it into ser 1? If you never installed the drivers then no SATA until you do. I am guessing I need to change sat settings to hopefully get board to recognize drive but not sure which ones.

I thought this feature was suppose to warn me about issues about to happen and give me the chance to save things? No as XP can look for drivers in a floppy only.

Yes, we know she’s hot!
