I recently added a "COMBO" PCI card to my existing Intel 845BG board system.
Windows XP was already installed.
Card provides SATA, USB 2.0, & FIREWIRE ports.
All drivers that came with card were loaded.
I then added 120GB SAMSUNG SATA drive.
1. Drive not recognized in BIOS set-up, but shows up in the computer hardware administrative menu . Drive was formatted and partioned. Now shows up in My Computer, but still absent from BIOS set-up.
SATA Drive also appears in Device Manager and SATA Silicon Image 3112 SCASI/RAID controller also appears in Device Manager. No yellow flags!
2. Drive is usable but is functioning at less than standard IDE performances and does not show up in BIOS set-up.. Existing IDE drive perfoemance has degraded by 50%. It appears drive may not be on SATA channel?
Any suggestions, inputs? Thanks!
