I have an intel DG41TY motherboard with Highpoint Rocket Raid 1740 PCI card installed.Running Raid 5. I am  running Server 2003 and I am trying to install a Quantum SATA DLT tape drive but the bios says that SATA 0 through 3 are not installed. How do I turn them back on, or is it not possible with the Raid PCI card installed?

Are you plugging the TBU into the integrated sata port or into the Highpoint card?

I am plugging the DLT tape drive into SATA port 1 on the motherboard. When I plug in the tape drive and try  to boot up ....I get to the RAID screen and then the computer loops. When I unplug the Tape drive the computer boots up OK

This is usually a setting in the BIOS, but it sounds like it is already ON.
Probaby a Boot Order problem. You need to check that the onboard SATA port are disabled from the boot order, or at least listed behind the Rocket card.
You might need to set the onboard sata to IDE compatibility for the tape drive also, but I am not sure about that.

I will try that in the AM and let you know the result. I am not at the server right now.

I didn't see anything in the motherboard manual about that. I can't tell if the Rocket is stealing the onboard SATA interrupts, or they were disabled and the Rocket is just blocking them from being used.

I discoverd a sata card that works and I just bypassed the one on the motherboard
