I tried to attach it to my trusty K7N2 board on my personal computer and do a check on the disk and see if I can get back any data which is very precious. If you never installed the drivers then no SATA until you do. Best thing after that would be to burn the important files to optical disc s as soon as possible. The size wouldn’t be a problem. The book states to create a security array which would be one disk with data and you add another and then copy all of the files on to it.

Time will not increase the problem if the disk is kept in a cool place. Also mentioned was ensuring drivers were loaded in c drive. Like always, any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.

Any thoughts on this or do you feel after doing as you suggest it satz not ask me to re-format drive? Concern is the drive may be to wata but I think I had larger drives on machine in the past.

If not I would guess I enter the define array and set the 0 array up which does nothing but lets me add a new sata drive to the saata which is the damaged one and not copy any files from the existing hard drive running on the MSI onto it and then hopefully will be able to then read the data I want off of it. I know its here somewhere I think but cannot find the exact command to activate sata.

In device manager it shows a Promise device SCSI disk device which is the drive and says working properly but does not treat it as a drive where I can access it to take a look at the files on it even though it says it is working properly. Please login or register. It did not recognize the drive.


No as XP can look for drivers in a floppy only.

Your computing wife will need another disk, so you could wait and attach the suspected drive later to her system. You could try jumper it to SATA 1. I can’t say thanks enough for all the help everyone has posted here to help me out with this issue. Thank you all for the responses and help. Thank you very much for response.

Because I am guessing in this setup, really do not need windows right now for anything so I get a new hard drive and copy the damaged drive info to it using this sataraid set up? Best thing after that would be to burn the important files to optical disc s as soon as possible. I just need to get it working so I can try a few programs I have to extract data off of bad hard drives.

It’s all explained there. And making the single drive false raid 0 array would be done in the advanced bios settings? If you never installed the drivers then no SATA until you do. Sorry if long winded sara just want to make sure.

Have your computing friend in life gotten herself a new disk yet? It is a RAID setup. SATA drivers and if so where would I find them? After picking auto setup the first option is Performance but it states I can change this but will not allow me to change to the security array for copying.


I reckon the disk is SATA 2. And what you found staa the controller, which seems to work well.

To get the ser1 input to work by doing this array thing seems to be confusing or am I not setting up the array correctly? Plugged it into the SER1 on my board sxta booted up. Sorry for being so newbie on the questions.

Maybe I have this all wrong but isn’t sata raid setup for adding a disk to run along and mirror another disk with the same info which improves performance and you have a back up if one or the other crashes? After your response to driver question, what you are saying is take a jumper and attach it to the pins on back of hard drive marked 1 and 2 and then take sata connector and put it into ser 1?

I thought this feature was suppose to warn me about issues about to happen and give me the chance to save things? Ok, set it up in the array settings on boot. I would guess the drivers not installed controls this correct?
