    I have a 400 Pro w/ the GigaRaid ATA 133 setup.

    I have setup 2 drives to mirror, and all seems to be OK in the bios.
    XP however does not see the drive. The properties tab says that the
    devices are working without conflict, but no drive is visible in

    Additionally the Riad tool included with the Mobo says the array is up
    an running - but the drive letter is missing - no drive letter.

    Any ideas?

    Check if you can see the ITE Raid controller under SCSI device section in
    the device manager. Also under Disk Drive can you see the RAID array. If so
    all is working okay and you simply need to go into the Disk Management tool,
    format the drive and assign a drive letter. If the RAID controller device is
    marked with a yellow marker in the device manager then the correct drivers
    are not installed correctly. You should have a driver diskette so select
    update driver and use this driver from the floppy.

    Hope this helps

    Have you partitioned the drive yet?

    Control Panel>Performance and maintenance>Administrative tools>Computer
    Then pick Disk management in storage section.

    You should be able to see the unallocated space on the new drive, and right
    click on it to create partition and format the drive.
