Hi Zevia - thanks for reply and taking a timeout to look into it! Appreciated!
I know the best way forward is to do the pci to Sata. but I have read alot and have been reading the comments regarding LG’s GGC H20l drives. Most of the articles are from a while back and this mobo is a newish one which might be different or may work without the PCI - SATA interface.
I have tried numerous combos - IDE is disabled & enabled - no luck.
I have used the drivers from my CD with the MOBO which has its own install program to install all drivers.
I have one question - my storage controller in vista home premium sp1 is a iscsi microsoft one - I have uninstalled and reinstalled - but im not sure if this is correct still which may be causing the issue.
