Asus A7N8X Deluxe + WinXP + SATA Problems

I have just upgraded from an Asus A7A266 based rig running a 1.33GHZ Athlon though, also with a 300W power supply, which I had absolutely no problems with. I do believe it is being reconized now. I believe BIOS needs to be updated as my PC has no problem detecting & fully booting up with the current 500GB SATA HDD. If you enter the SATARaid Utility you are told a drive is missing and if you wait for the RAID setup screen to pass and then try to install Windows you navigate here

How do I make it work?Oops sorry I just read your other post I think you tried what I said but anyway it is the only thing I can think of

How do I make it work?Just noticed, it sees them all (no matter how many are plugged in/out) in post. IF I add the 2nd drive to my SATA headers the system freezes prior to reaching raid. Unfortunately on the ide drive were lots music and video files about 85gb worth so it took about half an hour or so. Is this something I need to update the bios to enable or is there a way to only update the SATA driver on the mobo?

I also using bios revision 1001G and am using all the latest drivers (including the NForce 2.0 unified driver package). Is there anything special I must do to have a SATA II run on my Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe.

My MB will see the .5TB when getting the RAID screen but not as a storage drive. Let me know what you think. but if you buy one SATA you only need to buy a second SATA and put it on RAID to have performance close to SCSI systems (scsci is so fast and SATA power disconnected but data attached.

Yet if only the sata one is plugged in it will boot to windows. Kaby lake and Sandy bridge comparison. It works in windows and I have managed to read and write other floppy disks without any problems. I do a lot of video editing and simply run out of HardDrice-pace.

I then used western digitals "data lifeguard tools" which I had downloaded from WD's site cos the sata drive didn't come with an installation disk. I am clueless when it comes to RAID and need some advise.
