My Computer will not recongnize attached SATA drive thru the Sata Controller
When I boot into my Windows 2008 O/S ( it has the boot drive ) and try to force the machine to reconize disks with disk management it gives me a blue screen with
Machine Halted, Contact Hardware vendor error.
How do I solve this problem ?
Diagnosis done already:
The drive is fine. I can see the drives if I connect thru the USB
The enclosure and cables are fine. I had a different model enclosure Nexstar 3 as well as Hornettek and I have the same problem.
Cables are not an issue as I got all new cables and switched them around as well.
My PCI Sata Card information.
I bought IOCrest 4 channel PCO SAT II Raid Host Controller Card
Hornettek HOVER 3.5" SATA HDD External Enclosure ( with esata )
Seagate barracuda 7200 1 TB Sata Drive
I have the following configuration for my Server
My server is a HP DL 385
server are dual 2.4GHz Opteron Processors
8GB RAM (4 x 2GB)
Dual power supplies
2x ultra-320 SCSI 72GB Hard Drives (with room for 4 additional drives)
Dual Gigabit Ethernet ports
USB, PS2 ports
When I boot the Server, i can see that the raid controller for the SATA card I installed is there. When I am going to the settings by pressing CTRL+S , F4 I cannot see any drives either.
