    I got a mobo with built in raid.
    I am usin XP Pro.

    i have this connected to my IDE. chan. 1
    > Seagate 7200rpm 40gb hdd (master)
    > Maxtor 7200rpm 8mb cache. 120gb hdd (slave)

    this is my IDE chan 2
    >> TDK 52x burner (master)
    >> Sony Dru500a DVD Burner (slave)

    now i have a 40gb hdd that has all my music on it and when i plug it in to ide chan. 3 (master) it will boot then ask me to install a driver. after i install a driver it wont boot. I just want it to be like another hdd. i dont want it to mirror anything.

    go into the bios and see if you can change the functionality of your onboard raid channels to ATA. that's the way mine works.

    Also, what is your boot order

    HDD-0, SCSI, CD-ROM?

    RAID is usually the scsi

    boot order wouldn't matter if he's not booting from it.
