P4P800E-Deluxe IDE drive on ATA-RAID controller not found in WinXP but Win2000

  1. Hi All

    I've got a P4P800E-Deluxe.
    I have two 80GB IDE Harddisks connected to the primary controller
    and a DVD-R/RW drive to the secondary controller.
    I also connected a third 80GB IDE harddisk to the ATA-RAID controller,
    just to use this as a additional normal drive, no RAID configured
    (=IDE) , enhanced set to P-ATA/S-ATA

    First I had installed Win2k which had no problems accessing the hd on
    the RAID controller after installing the Promis378/ATA driver.
    Now after installing WinXP the device manager shows me the Promise 378
    controller in error:
    Device could not be started (Code10)

    Any ideas, comments ??
    Need more infos ??

    any help appreciated.

    There are two DIFFERENT drivers that can be associated with the
    Promise controller - one for RAID & one for plain IDE/ATA. I got the
    RAID one from the ASUS site & when I went back to non-RAID, from the
    P4C800D CD.

  3. Thanks,

    I already found that WinXP didn't choose the ATA driver and took the
    RAID. So, I forced it manually to take the ATA driver from CD.
    Now it works fine.
