Hello hardware expert,

I am trying to configure my new pc to raid striping whithout any succes so far.
Configuration Motherboard Asus P5B
2 sata II hard disks (identical)
I have 4 sata connectors on my motherboard
and 1 sata raid connector.
Now if i connect one disk to the sata raid connector and the other
one to sata 1. Then when i enter the raid configuration he only
finds the disk that is connected to the raid connector and not
the one in sata 1 port.
And there's no second sata raid connector on the board, so
i don't really understand how i can add a disk in raid.
I have set the JMB636 sata controller to raid in bios. (Other options are AHCI or IDE)
In the sata raid configuration tool im not able to find second hard disk, nor is there
any option to go and find a disk.
I must be doing something wrong...
You're help is very appreciated

Kind regards
Steven vervliet
