The problem is with the Plextor. It doesn’t show up in the BIOS when I have the SATA mode set to RAID. The only way this drive shows up is to have the SATA mode set to anything other than RAID. If I do that I lose my RAID 0 + RAID 1 set up.
I have the latest BIOS for the MB (13) and for the Plextor (1.04). I also have the latest verion of the Intel Application Accelorator.
The only way for me to install Windows XP was to connect a IDE CD-ROM drive.
After the install Windows XP SP2 see’s the drive fine but still no luck in the BIOS.
So now there is no way for me to boot off of this DVD drive. I had to order a Plextor Premium CD-RW drive and plug that into the IDE controller on the MB.
If anyone can get this combo to work please let me know how you did it.
I think someone has to do a BIOS update or a Firmware update to resolve this issue.
