    Hello guys,I'm Issues with this mobo(gigabyte extreme)cpu 940 intel
    windows 64bit with one raptor 150g. symptoms are as follows
    1. when windows starts i get a splash screen:part of bios that Identifies the main drive as master 0 slave 0 . now when i go into bios
    it identifies the master (raptor) as an IDE and slave (dvd rom)as a floopy drive. I'm i missing something here or perhaps i made a mistake ?
    thanks you. JA.:banghead:

    Perhaps it was a mistake. Did you set the drive to AHCI or RAID in bios before installing the OS? You would have also installed drivers for the drive prior during the install. If you didn't, the rig is running in IDE mode and I don't think you can change this without a full re install.

    Edit: Actually you can http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976
