Ok, so, I tried to format my HDD the other week, and whenever I would get to the boot from disc part, my computer would say that it couldn't recognize a HDD even being there. I found a thread that had the same question. Turns out that the problem was they had a RAID controller but with only one hard drive installed. Apparently it freaked out the computer or something. I believe that's my problem.
Only thing is, that now that I get around to trying to format again, I don't know what to do to fix this. I remember reading something about disabling the raid controller in the BIOS, but I haven't a clue as to how to do that. My controller manual isn't very helpful at all. It just tells you how to set up a RAID array. Anyone out there able to give me some help??

System make, model or motherboard make/model?

Is the RAID controller on the motherboard or is it a separate component on a PCI card?

All you may need to do is go into the BIOS settings and change that to reflect IDE-0 as your first boot option.
