    Shuttle An50R mainboard; Samsung S1614C (160Gb) SATA disks.

    Attaching the disks, is fine. the RAID controller sees them fine.
    I can raid or mirror or use separately.

    However, when attempting to format (either from fresh Windows XP
    instlal or from existing (on IDE disk) install, the install completes
    to 100%, and then Windows gives an error 'unable to complete the
    format operation'.

    Is the motherboard duff, or is there an incompatibility with these
    particular disks ?
    (I've verified the disks work in another SATA computer).
