My Computer is an Emachines T2245
Running Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 3
Processor: Intel Celeron

If you need any more system info just ask me..

I recently bought a SIIG eSATA II-150 PCI card
I inserted it into a open PCI slot and booted up the computer...
It shows the Emachines logo and then gives me the following error..........

Inito. INIC6020 SATA ADAPTOR BIOS VERSION 1.12

controller at bus 2, Slot 9

scanning drives.
channel 0:Device not found
channel 1:Device not found

***No drive attached BIOS Disabled***

If anyone knows what this means or how to fix it
please inform me..

Thanks,
Shadow3200

I finally figured it out...
The computer will only boot up if you have at least one eSATA hard drive connected.

so the computer will not boot up without a eSATA drive connected?

Do you know why it is like that?
