Ever heard of this?

My Raid 0, with duel Raptors, was working fine for 8 mo. Had an unexpected crash 3 days ago out of nowhere.

Now the Promise Raid build utility does not see my Sata Raid channels, together. (Bios sees nothing b/c it only detects a working array)

...now this is where it gets weird -

When I plug one sata cable, alone, into either mobo raid channel and into either HD, it sees the HD. Obviously the Raid doesn't boot b/c it striped it but I am just checking the channels & the HDs.

...so while plugged in seperately...
Ch1+HD1=ok
Ch2+HD2=ok
Ch1+HD2=ok
Ch2+HD2=ok

Both Chs+Both HDs = no hds found!!

The other two non-raid sata channels see both Hds but this is useless to me b/c I don't want to reformat.

I have an Asus P4C800e-deluxe. Tech support said to flash bios. I did that and now the POST wont let me even start my Raid Fastbuild Utility (I used to be prompted for a Ctrl+F)

Asus is sending me a new Bios chip and said if that dont work to send them my Mobo for a rebuild .....oh JOY!!!

Right now I'm on an old HD w/ an IDE and my Raptors are collecting dust.

I figured I throw this out here and see if anybody ever heard of this type of thing before.
