check for any yellow marks alongside the controller entry in the device manager
What are the details? Are all the drives listed and identified by model name?I did check in the device manager. Everythings fine there.
The hardware wizard lists all the drives by there appropriate model # except those connected to the promise controller and does list only one instance of each and there are no conflicts.Stu_computer said:What are the details? Are all the drives listed and identified by model name?
Have you used the Hardware Wizard to verify there is only one instance of each drive, if it appears more than once then there is a possible conflict and you will need to remove all instances before rebooting for clean install.
Using Hardware Wizard, select:
-Uninstall/Unplug a device
-Uninstall a device
-[x]Show hidden devices
if a device listed more than once then remove all instances of the device
repeat above until all instances are removed then reboot for fresh install of device.

OS and what service packs,
Model and size of the drives.
This is normal.wuzzle said:One thing that does puzzle me is that Via shows up in the device manager under ide ata/atapa controller, but not Promise. It does show under scsi and raid controller as Promise Technology, Inc Ultra Ide Controller though.
Keep in mind that I've tried configuring both drives as well with the same results.crazijoe said:Very strange that they don't show in disk management. This would lead me to believe that it has to be a configuration descrepancy with the Promise Controller. Or you cannot configure single drives on that controller.
