Well, my computer has been down for a month now, and I can't get it to work. My motherboard died and I replaced it with a new one, different model though. After figuring out the raid controller drivers were different, I returned it and bought the exact same one I had before, ASUS A8N-E. It works fine, except I can't get my RAID setup correctly.

Since it's the exact same model board I was using before, the raid controller drivers should be the same or very close, but I still get a "hard disk error: insert system disk" warning when it tries to boot into the drives.

I have 2, 300gb drives, running RAID striped so they can act as one large 600gb drive.

What in the world could be the problem? I've tried using different SATA ports, SATA cords, configurations, resetting CMOS, rebuilding RAID, etc.

I remember your other yjread.

The raid array has probably been corrupt from trying to get it to work with the other motherboard.

Try booting the Windows disk, using F6, & installing the RAID drivers again.

If that doesn't work simply accept you are going to have to do a clean install .
