    Hi folks,

    Got my Hitachi in ModeB by using Slax 2.0 but still cannot be read by windows even after pushing close/open a few times during XP bootup bar. Anyone got any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

    I have an Abit i7 mobo and I'm using the onboard SATA controller.

    My PC DVD burner is the Pioneer 111d.

    As I say Slax picks up that I have the drive connected no problem, and it goes into ModeB, but then when I load up windows (pressing close/open a few times during boot) the drive won't show up.

    I take it this has nothing to do with my BIOS settings because the drive is recongised in Slax?

    Just in case these are my BIOS settings ...


    IDE Bus Master : Enabled
    Onchip IDE1 Controller : Enabled
    Master Drive PIO Mode : Auto
    Slave Drive PIO Mode : Auto
    Master Drive Ultra DMA : Disabled
    Slave Drive Ultra DMA : Disabled

    Onchip Serial ATA Setting
    Onchip Serial ATA Mode : IDE (also has the RAID option)
    SATA Raid ROM : Disabled
    Onchip Serial ATA : Auto
    Serial ATA 1 Mode : IDE3 Master
    Serial ATA 2 Mode : IDE4 Master


    Does my mobo not support the Hitachi in windows? Will I have to buy a SATA PCI board to get it to work? If so what one is the best?

    Cheers for your help!
