Hello,

If one has a A8V-E Deluxe Sata MB with an updated Bios and only
1 SATA Disk as secondary Data disk and the Bios is set as
SATA Raid rather than SATA IDE could this create problems with
disk usage (r/w) in WinXP SP2 ?

I have found a Bios with this setup on a brand new computer recently.
The computer seems to run OK in evrything but one program and I am
trying to determine the cause. (HW or SW)
Perhaps it is only a SW compatibility problem, however there was a
Disk error which may have been due to : Faulty new HDD SATA or
a Heat problem due to the position near to another disk in spite of a
HDD fan.

Thank you for any help.

Since no-one has posted, I will give you my thoughts.
I am assuming that there is another OS HDD, maybe IDE, that is in addition to the SATA data disc you are speaking of. I initial thought would be that the BIOS setting of 'sata-raid' instead of 'sata-ide' would cause a lot of problems with accessing that disc for anything, but since you are able to access the disc, I must think it is OK. If there are some problems with accessing that disc, then you could just try to set the BIOS as 'sata-ide; and see if the problem goes away.

Thanks for the effort.
In fact no other OS, only 1 ATA boot and 1 SATA Data
Your comments leave doubts as regards the eventual consequences of such
a setup.
As mentioned the errors tha came up were after a few weeks of use with no
errors before, which is why I mentioned the possible HDD/HW error. (RMA)
Anyway am trying a new install with the IDE option.
I was however interested in the opinion of the people here for this type of
mixup since it was not really well described in the manual.
Thanks
