    I hooked my only HD up using the serial ata device that came with my NF7-S...in bios, i set serial ata to boot first... but it doesnt detect it. why not? :confused:

    and i do have the drivers, that came with it, installed in windows, if that matters.

    1) do you see a raid bios setup screen for a few seconds before windows starts?
    2) does the harddrive have even a bootable os on it?

    after the power on selft tests the next screen it should say press ctrl-s or f4 to enter raid setup. Im assuming that is where you can set it up. I was thinking of doing that but it seemed like more trouble than it was worth but if you notice any diffrence between that and using IDE cables please post it.

    the molex connector or whatever had a wire hanging out just a little, so i pushed it back in and it's working now.

    but thanks for trying to help :D

    ive only had the comp for a few days and i never ran any benchmark tests or anything before so i cant really tell if its running any faster...but it seems to be running at normal speed or just little bit faster...if that helps you any :rolleyes:
