I have a K7N2G-ILSR mobo with the promise 376 sata raid controller on it. I picked myself up 2 120GB Maxtor Diamondmax 9 hard drives and have been trying to get them working. The controller finds them fine and sets them up 0+1 without incident, but when i get into my windows xp setup, after i give it the driver off my floppy disk for the raid controller, it goes really fucking slow, and occasionally just hangs there with the hard drive occasionally clicking (like the head is going back to resting spot. I’ve gotten it to install once, but data corruption quickly ensued afterwards. Problem with SATA is I have 5 systems here but lol non have SATA so I can see if its teh drives, but sicne they are brand new and I’ve seen a lot of posts about this damn controller I was wondering if you guys had any insight…
Anyone else run into this before? Basically it just doesn’t seem to work right. My bios for the controller posts 184.108.40.206 on bootup, I just updated my MSI bios to the lastest one.
WTF si up?
