Onchip primaryPCI/IDE enabled. Sata raid/AHCI mode [Raid] shut down and restarted same problem, went back in again and set onchip sata mode [ Auto] would not start up. went into the raid configuration Utility. in the Phyical and logical drive it shows the HL-DT-ST-DVD Ram GH-20 CD-Rom. I hope you ca assist me with this problem. Many Thanks. Terry.\015

Answers :

This is happening because the DVD SATA is booting like a first drive instead of the IDE Drive.
Be sure that your SATA drive is connected to a right port on your motherboard.
Go to your bios and into the boot options be sure that the IDE drive boot first than the SATA DVD.
******************************
Another way is connecting an adaptor SATA to IDE and connect your SATA DVD Drive as second IDE on your motherboard.

This will be fixing your problem.


Have a great day
