Seeing as my mobo only has 1 IDE connector, i've put my optical drives on it and decided to use an A-Bit Hotrod Pro 100 Raid card as an IDE Controller for my HDD's as it doesn't support optical drives. I can use my boot drive on the IDE card no problem, system boots up to XP. However, if I connect my other 2 HDD's as Master/Slave to the Secondary channel then I get Disk Boot Failure! No matter what I do, the system will only boot with 1 HDD connected to the card! The BIOS on the mobo defaults to the IDE card as the first Hard Disk boot device (found as SCSI-0 HPT370/372) as there are no HDD's connected to the mobo. I can set a boot drive in the cards BIOS but this still won't allow booting with 2 or more HDD's connected? Is this because it's a RAID card and if more than 1 drive is connected it expects it to be a RAID array? if so, does this mean I CANNOT get this to work with 3 separate HDD's. I have 2 x 120GB Seagate Baracudas and 1 x 60GB Hitachi Deskstar I want to use. Any ideas please?
