HUGE NEWB... Sorry to add more to the SATA questions but I can't figure out how to add my old IDE HDD to my new system that has a S-ATA HDD. The S-ATA is set up as a RAID an I have the IDE on it's own cable set as master. The Bios shows that it is there but when the system boots it will go fine until the end of the boot sequence where it looks like a blue screen then reboots very quickly. I looked up some previous threads but all of them seem to have different bios options than my own. System boots fine without the added IDE HDD

mobo= ms-7103
P4 2.93mhz
Seagate 160g S-ATA HDD
Maxtor 80g IDE HDD
IDE NEC DVD-RW

  • Have you try to set your Boot Priority to your SATA HDD as 1st Boot Drive?

  • bluescreen? hmm... may I know what board is MS-7103? Which IDE port you plug into? IS it fine when you share the IDE HDD with the DVD together on the same cable?

    As far as the priority goes I have:

    cd/dvd
    IDE 0
    IDE 1

    When I go to the normal bios settings I see that it says:
    IDE Primary Master      = Maxtor (the Old IDE HDD)
    IDE Primary Slave        = None
    IDE Secondary Master  = NEC DVD RW
    IDE Secondary Slave    =None

    Floppy not Installed

    I don't see the SATA but that might be normal I don't know
    The SATA controller is enabled with RAID also Enabled

    I tried to see what the blue screen says but It is too quick and I can't catch it with pause/break

    I disconnected the DVD and used it's ribbon cable and it did the same thing, blue screen. The old HDD  was the boot drive on the old machine would that make a difference if it was still formatted  to be a bootable drive even if it was third in the boot sequence? The mobo is listed as ms-7103 on the board and the retail name is 661FM3-V
    Thanks for the help thus far!

  • You have only a single SATA drive, so you cannot make any RAID. You need at least two SATA-disks to make a RAID-array. So, leave the SATA controller enabled, but don't set the other option to RAID. Set it to Single Drive, IDE or whatever you can choose from.
    In case you can choose in what way to enable the SATA-controller (if there's only one thing to set), just set it to SATA, not RAID.

    PS: Sorry for my bad explanation - I'm not familiar with the board and the way the bios looks ... but I hope you can manage. Just don't select RAID anywhere, okay?

    I disabled the RAID option and it still went to a blue screen and rebooted. I then disabled the old IDE HDD and tryed to boot but it would not. I then enabled the RAID again and booted fine with just the one SATA drive.

  • Can you test your old 80GB HDD in another system?
