| I have two hard drives, one for storage and the other for running my OS and various programs. I reinstalled XP yesterday and now my second hard drive cannot be detected.|
The other hard drive is not visible in disk management or in Bios. Under SATA-2 for Bios, it says "Drive ID = Unknown" and when booting up, for a split second, it the screen says "driver not found serial ATA."
I have a crappy Sabrent SBT-RDIT RAID adapter to plug in my two drives. I'm presuming that controller card does not have its driver installed and so cannot read the second hard drive. Does that sound correct?
I downloaded what driver I could find online here(http://members.driverguide.com/driver/detail.php?driverid=572566), but that running the one file in there doesn't work. Is there some special way I need to install the driver, if that is even the problem? Should I buy a new controller card for my hard drive?
Any and all help is greatly appreciated. The only reason I know what little I do is because a friend helped me with this problem three years ago, but now he is long gone and I'm without tech savvy friends.
additional info: I'm running a Dell dimension 4700 series.
