I have a windows 7 Professional 64 bit computer. WIth ASUS P6X58D Premium - LGA 1366 - X58 - DDR3 - USB 3.0 SATA 6 Gb/s - ATX Motherboard My raid controller is Areca Technology Corporation ARC-1680D-IX 12-ports SAS RAID Controller ARC-1680D-IX-12
All was working fine until I decided to add a hard drive (not to the raid, but just another hard drive.) At first it still worked, but at some point the raid stopped working. I have since removed that hard drive and am concentrating on getting the Raid back working.
The Areca raid configuration software is seeing the raid. But when I go into the Windows motherboard BIOS The Sata for the raid is "Not Detected". I have 4 hard drives witch create the raid.
Looking for some help here in troubleshooting this.
To help I did some screen captures and put into a little 1 and a half minute video. I may submit the video to the Oscars (under "Most Boring" category) -- and if It wins I'll be sure to thank you on the Oscar Night broadcast.
Here's the link Video screencast.
P.S.. I know I misspelled Areca in my little video... :)
