On startup I'm getting an error "do drive attached to fastrak controller, the Bios is not installed" I can get it to start up and it eventually works fine but it's a pain.

The fastrak s150 tx2 plus ATA Bios ( is up to date.

Thanks in advance,

The "no drive" message comes up if the drivers are not installed...or there are no drives attached to a properly installed controller card.

You only need the BIOS...if you are running a RAID. If you are not running a RAID, the BIOS only shows the drives which are attached/recognized.

Other than that, as long as Windows has the proper Promise drivers installed...the controller works for additional hard drive access.

Drivers are downloadable from the Promise site, make sure you get the right ones (for XP).
