I have just fired up my first computer build. The monitor, keyboard, mouse, 3.5 inch drive, CD reader all work fine. The motherboard is an Aopen AX4SPE Max and the BIOS is a Phoenix Award V6.00PG.

I have installed two Western Digital WD360 Raptor SATA drives, configured as RAID0. The BIOS reports the status of this volume as normal and bootable with a size of 68.9GB. There are no other hard drives in the system.

I have installed Windows XP Pro and it finds only 34.4GB as total size of drive C. With RAID 0 it should see one drive of 68G.

When I formatted the drives, one took several minutes and the second less than a minute. I can't for the life of me, find my way back to the place allowing me to format the drives.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

dai,

Thanks for the thought, but nothing seemed applicable to my SATA problem. I think that the second drive didn't get formatted porperly and I can't seem to find the way back to the formatting screen.
