Hi everyone, i have a problem i really need help with, so far everything i have tried does not work.
My old Liteon ide drive started getting sticky so i decided to go for the 7240s sata . I originally plugged this drive in to my Striker Extreme motherboard thinking everything would be fine but i was wrong. I have Raid 0 enabled and i read somewhere that this may cause problems with a sata dvdr, so after trying two sata ports(3 and then 6) and getting the same result,(ie nothing) i bought a pci express sata controller card, installed the non raid drivers, but still no luck. Heres what happens:
In the BIOS it shows up fine.
When i boot up i can insert the vista disc and the drive will read it and spin up normally. When i reach desktop it's a different story. It will not work at all, furthur more, when i look in Device Manager the drive is showing in 'other devices' and has no driver information. If i try to update the driver i get the 'Windows has found suitable drivers but access denied' message. I have tried different sata cables, i have updated the bios to 1901 , i have removed the Upper/Lower filters, no matter what i do nothing seems to work??
I am on Vista 64bit Ultimate with latest service packs etc
please help if you can, this is doing my nut in!
