Install 4 IDE and 1 SATA on an EPOX EP-4PDA2+ MOBO
Posted on 2005-02-25
I'm having a hell of a time installing a new drive on an existing setup. The machine has 2 CD drives, and 2 IDE drives. Therefore Primary1/2 and Secondary1/2 are taken. I have two SATA connections. I bought this Seagate 80Gb SATA drive to install.
In the Bios, I see it can run as RAID or IDE. If it's on IDE the option is Disabled, Primary or Secondary. When I choose Primary or Secondardy, it removes the corresponding IDE drives. If Disabled, it obviously just doesn't work. When I choose the RAID option, and go into windows 2000, it asks for the Raid Controller drivers. I downloaded the Silicon drivers.
Even then, it still doesn't show this drive.
What do I need to change/install in the BIOS/Windows to get this working as a 5th drive?
Thanks a lot,
