ok i got my ATA card to partially detect my HD
let me just redraw the situation...
i have a HD connected to an ATA PCI Card
i have a DVD-RW and a DVD-ROM connected as primary/slave on the only IDE port that my mobo has
im trying to reformat the HD
when i boot from CD, it asks me to press F6 to install any SCSI/RAID drivers, which i have done about 50 times.
but after formatting the partition and the system goes on to restart...it doesn't read my HD, as if the RAID/SCSI drivers got erased or something
if i skip the F6 step, my HD doesnt show up in the partition list
if i were to switch the IDE ports, and have my HD directly connected to my motherboard
and my DVD-RW and DVD-ROM connected to the ATA PCI Card, the two drives wont work.
the ATA PCI Card is brand new btw.
