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. Plugged it into the SER1 on my board and booted up. In device manager it shows a Promise device SCSI disk device which is the drive and says working properly but does not treat it as a drive where I can access it to take a look at the files on it even though it says it is working properly. But you can do slipstream XP installation disk and to include the necessary drivers. The first one with the 3 ide. I wanted to set up sata on my MSI motherboard computer so i could read a damaged drive that is having issues from another computer and save the data. I have not yet been able to find a guide, just the

Because I am guessing in this setup, really do not need windows right saha for anything so I get a new hard drive and copy the damaged drive info to it using this sataraid set up? I did not mention that the error I get from the wifes computer is during boot up the warning is S. One other thing, have you tried to run WD Data Lifeguard to see what it shows as far as what might be wrong wih the drive? I did take note having the new drive set up in an array and then taking it out again did not cause any issues and it looks like it will switch back and forth.
To run the live CD, once you boot from Ubuntu in the menu choose “try ubuntu without any changes to your pc” sentence may vary.
If you never installed the drivers then no SATA until you do. 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.
In device manager it shows a Promise device SCSI disk device which is the drive and says working properly but does not treat it as a drive where I can access it to take a look at the files on it even though it says it is working properly. The book states to create a security array which would be one disk with data and you add another and then swta all of the files on to it. Mwi 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 can’t say thanks enough for all the help everyone has posted here to help me out with this issue. And none of those options after entering them has promise Raid.

I know its here somewhere I think but cannot find the exact command to activate sata. If booting off the disk is not required I don’t think you need floppy, and I understood it like you wanted an emergency back-up with the data over to Daddy’s disk.
I also like the suggestion of the linux way of trying to save some files.
Sorry for being so newbie on the questions. So no worry about re-formating the damaged drive before I get the info from it. Concern is the drive may be to large but I think I had larger drives on machine in the past.

Will give it a go and report back. SATA drivers and if so where would I find them? You posted while I was still typing but as mentioned above it seems you need to download the drivers if you don’t have the floppy. Hard Disk discovered the disk could be bad.
Xata what you found is the controller, which seems to work well.
You could try jumper it to SATA 1. You will need to set up single drive RAID 0 array. If you don’t have the Satw floppy that came with the MB you can download here: No as XP can look for drivers in a floppy only.
I have not yet been able to find a guide, just the Instead of trying to get it to work in your PC there is another option. Thank you so much sara staying with me on this. Activating it will in plain language make the connection ports on the board active for ser1 or ser2, correct?
Please login or register. I think what will happen now is install windows again and then make the bad drive a second and use some type of data recovery program to try and get the data my wife needs back.
Sqta did not recognize the drive. Can I install drives with a disk or usb stick? Thinking I had to install a new drive no matter what, I bought a new sata drive and went into the array setup and was able to add it as a drive and recognize it.
