I did try the Ubuntu cd with ASUS and was impressed with it, but running computer with it, it showed drive but did not let me access it so it must be down for the count. Maybe I have this all wrong but isn’t sata raid setup for adding a disk to run along and mirror another disk with the same info which improves performance and you have a back up if one or the other crashes? I reckon the disk is SATA 2. The book states to create a security array which would be one disk with data and you add another and then copy all of the files on to it. Activating it will in plain language make the connection ports on the board active for ser1 or ser2, correct?

If not I would guess I enter the define array and set the 0 array up which does nothing but lets me add a new sata drive to the mix which is the damaged one and not copy any files from the existing hard sta running on the MSI onto it and then hopefully will be able to then read the data I want off of it.
I tried a Jumper on pin 1,2 to make it a slave I did not think I had to put jumpers on for sata but tried anyway with no luck. Under define array it gives first line as array 1 and then you select the Raid Mode, total drives capacity and status for the array mxi. The book states to create a security array which would be one disk with data and you add another and then copy all of the files on to it.
The first one with the 3 ms.
After picking auto setup the first option is Performance but it states I can change this but will not allow me to change to the security array for copying. In device manager it shows a Promise device SCSI disk device which is the drive and says working properly but does not treat it as a drive where I7n2 can access smi to take a look at the files on it even though it says it is working properly.
You posted while I was still typing but as mentioned above it seems you need to download aata drivers if you don’t have the floppy. Your computing wife will need another disk, so you could wait and attach the suspected drive later to her system. Also mentioned was ensuring drivers were loaded in c drive. Hard Disk discovered the disk could be bad. You will then need to settle which disk to boot from – not a big issue.
Thank you very much for response. You could try jumper it to SATA 1. After your response to driver question, what you are saying is take a jumper and attach it to the pins on back of hard mdi marked 1 and 2 and then take sata connector and put it into ser 1? If you don’t have the Promise floppy that came with the MB you can download here: Thank you all for the responses and help. Thank you so much for staying with me on this. It is a RAID setup. You will need to set up single drive RAID 0 array.

I tried to attach it to my trusty K7N2 board on my personal computer and do a check on the disk and see if I can get back any data which is very precious. One option is to hit ctrl-Y to save this setting which i am saga to do. If you never installed the drivers then no SATA until you do.
Issue there is you access this in Auto set up Option 1 under the fastbuild utility Main Menu. If booting l7n2 the disk is not required I don’t think you need floppy, and I understood it like you wanted an emergency back-up with the data over to Daddy’s disk. When trying to set it up for the raid on MSI it also showed it as being there but just not able to access it.
Sorry for being so newbie on the questions. The size wouldn’t be a problem.
Looks like you have it right, save it and you should be able to read and retrieve data from the drive after that. It did not recognize the drive. Yes, we know she’s hot!
Can I install drives with a disk or usb stick? I thought this feature was suppose to warn me about issues about to happen and give asta the chance to save things? You guys are really the best. Do not have the floopy that came with board although i did buy it new and would not matter because I do not have a floopy drive attached to machine.
