    GREAT to see you got it all working! Thanks for the kind words!

    That is simple to fix, especially since you have no data on the drive/drives. All you have to do is delete the partition and create a new basic disk and format it to NTFS in it's place. This will not affect your RAID at all. Your RAID will always be one disk and fine until you do something with it in the BIOS or Utility, windows will always see it as one large drive (no matter how many partitions you put inside it)

    See here, similar is suggested (likely for a disk with DATA on it, you could do it either way) >>>

    You may also use partition programs like Acronis or Partition magic to do this as well

    Since you are running a server that may be what you want anyway, or GPT >>>

    What do you see when you right click the area as shown here, you may just be able to convert it. If not, just delete the volume and create a new partition >>>

    Option 2 just worked perfect for me under Xp-Pro SP3. I've been chasing this around for 2 days before I found this site.

    Many thanks.

    Uninstalling the Gigabyte raid driver fixed my problem, my DVD burner was not recognizing disks, explorer was hanging, autorun was not working. Disks were only recognized if they were in the drive and the system was rebooted, otherwise explorer.exe would just hang the system, very annoying -- Win XP Pro, fresh install. Just got the motherboard EP45-UD3P the other day and was trying to get everything re-installed, unknowingly installed all from the Gigabyte driver disk, and cd/dvd access went downhill. Once I uninstalled the raid driver, Windows detected a standard IDE controller and all was well. Luckily I found this forum and found my answer, thanks to all--great forum!

    Glad to find this thread which I've read through but don't seem to quite have the answer for my config.

    My setup:
    GA-965P-S3 with 2 hard drives in RAID 0 on the 2 purple SATA headers as the boot volume using Win XP SP3. 3 hard drives on 3 of the yellow SATA headers runnning fine. A Plextor DVD reader/writer running on the IDE header.

    Problem: Just added an LG GCC-H20L BluRay DVD optical drive on the 4th yellow SATA header. Windows doesn't popup with the expected "found new hardware" wizard. Instead 3 new SCSI drive entries are added in device manager but the new drive won't run at all using these. (Edit: it has power and the tray will open but no disks are recognized in it)

    What I've tried:
    uninstalling the 3 SCSI entries in device manager then scanning for new hardware again. Same result.
    Option 3 above.

    Naturally I'm not anxious to try option 1 or 2 above for fear of breaking my RAID 0 booting.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated especially if it can be fixed without a clean install.
