Hello,\n\nI have the AN19E. It’s about 1.5 years old and really hasn’t been much\ntrouble until recently. Here goes:\n\nI have 2 HDDs on IDE0, and the 2 CD drives on IDE1. I wanted to add\ntwo more HDDs to the system. I did the first one successfully, adding\na 120GB drive to ne of the two "raid" ports on the board. Everything\nwas peachy.\n\nThen, I bought a 160GB drive a few weeks ago. I hooked it up on the\nsame IDE cable as the 120GB drive. When I went to reboot, it would not\ndo so. It would get to the HighPoint part, find the two drives on the\nextra IDE, then sit there.\n\nI tried moving it to the other IDE/RAID port, and it did boot up...\nonce... and even recognized the drives. However, the drives\ndisappeared a short time later, and when I went to re-boot... the same\nboot problem.\n\nHere’s where it gets even more convoluted. If I disconnect the IDE\ncable with the two extra drives, it STILL won’t boot. It gets past\nthat HighPoint part, then the blinking cursor just sits in the upper\nleft corner. I then disconnect two of the USB cables controlling my\nprinter and UPS, and it booted up fine. This is strange.\n\nI know there could be a number of reasons, I guess, and I’ve tried not\nto be too vague or incomplete... does anyone have any idea what I\nmight try to get it to recognize these drives and boot up when\nconnected? I have tried the "fail-safe" and "optimized" options in\nthe BIOS to no avail.\n\nThanks for any help.
