Hi. We need to know the PC manufacturer and model, or motherboard model, and number of IDE and SATA hard drives.

theres something called HPT370 Bio Setting Utility. it shows there is only one HDD there. But windows will not install to it. XP Error Keeps stating there is no HDD present? and thoughts?

I am not experienced setting up RAID arrays so will defer that to someone else. However, the BIOS should still detect both drives. What IDE connectors are the drives plugged into (1-4)? And the jumper settings on the drives (master, slave or CS)?

Ribbon cable has both HDD on them. set to master / slave repectively. I think the issue is coming from the software that the RAID wants to use. I think its keeping the regular Bios from seeing 2 Drives.?
