    Hi Troops,

    I'm getting a message that 'no drives intstalled' on an
    ASUS AV7-133, yet two hard-drives are installed, as well
    as two CD-ROMS.

    The exact message:

    ULTRA100 Bios is not installed because there are no drives attached

    There are IDE controllers for ide drives, in fact a total of four. (and floppy)

    Each set of two has a blue base and a black base for the IDE cables. I've
    found that it relates to a RAID 0 array, but I only want a regular Master-
    Slave hard drive setup.

    I can't find how to change it in the BIOS, and I've tried pluging the HDDs
    in in various configurations and it still either recognizes the two CD-ROMS,
    or the two HDDs - but still doesn't get all four, like it's supposed to be.

    Haaaaalllllllp TIA
