Re: help with installing a sata hdd as an extra storage drive
You probably need to enable the raid controller then, there should be a jumper on the motherboard, it should be 4 pins with a jumper. The jumper should be on pins 1 and 2. If you have the manual for the motherboard, check that for the location.
