    going to state the very obvious.. but did you make sure you have the right jumpers on the hardrive set up/ power is connected/ IDE is connected.

    when u are booting toset up windows 2003 when it asks for scisie or raid setup his F6 it is the first thing on the bottom of the screen for your options. you also have to get the raid drver disk out and put it in the floppy drive it should be these drivers

    Promise R20378 RAID controller

    and also are you making a raid or just a drive because some raid ships want you to make a stripe raid of 1 disk to use just the one so you might need to set that up.

    and also does anyone know why there are needed to be jumpers on a SATA drive since it is only one drive pre channel?
