I've read quite a few posts concerning Sata and IDE drive issues, however none of them quite fit my problem. If this is a redundant question I apologize in advance.
I bought a Maxtor Basics Sata II/300 internal hard drive, 500 gb for my dell 3000. I also purchased a
Raid5 SATA II 3Gbps 4Ports (1External eSATA +3 Internal) Low Profile PCI Host. (I am unsure how to check for the motherboard model, please advise if needed) The Device Manager indicates the card to be a Silicon Image Sil 3124 SoftRaid 5 Controller.
I am running Win XP SP2.
I have a an IDE Maxtor 200 GB drive; Location: Bus Number 1, Target ID 0, LUN 0
on the Primary Channel.
THE GOAL: Copy all files to the SATA drive, remove IDE drive. Only run SATA drive.
I installed my SATA PCI card (installed drivers)
I installed my SATA hard drive (ran the MaxBlast 4 CD, the installation copied all files from the IDE drive to the SATA drive)
SATA drive: Location 0
Both drives function beautifully together, however when I disconnect the IDE I get the following error on boot:
Dell System Dimension 3000 Series
BIOS version A03
Primary drive 0 not found
SiI 3124 SATARaid BIOS Version 6.3.18
