    Default problem setting up sata raid GA-MA74GM-S2

    Hi, I have a Gigabyte GA-MA74GM-S2.

    I have a fasttrak tx2650 SAS pci-E card running a 147GB 15K rpm drive.
    This drive has my op system on it - works fine (windows xp)

    I have two 1TB drives on the motherboard sata ports 0 and 1

    I see them in the Bios. So i know they are recognized.

    When i go to set the sata ports to "raid" and reboot.. the computer
    gets to the "bios raid" section.. and says scanning drives......
    that it.. it never finds them and never boots.. also I can not access the bios after that.. I have to use the jumper and clear the bios to get back in..

    I need to access some kind of raid setup utility.. there is 1 setup utility for my fast track card.. but that is SAS not SATA.. does this mean I cannot have a SAS drive and two drives on raid via the mother board?

    Any help appreciated

    What bios are you using? Maybe try a newer one. I just got 2 of these boards but have not tried any raid since its for my parents and only basic internet browsing
    New Q9650, Gigabyte UD3P, 4GB OCZ Platinum, Asus TOP 4850, Antec TP3 550W, Vista 64 SP1/XP SP3.
