Windows XP SP2, Intel DG965WH mobo. Two SATA hard drives, two EIDE hard drives (WD200EB). Suddenly one day, without warning, the two EIDE drives just disappeared from the Hard Disk Drive list and files on the drives could not be accessed. In addition, XP will not reboot with the EIDE drives in the system but the system seems to work fine when the EIDE drives are removed. The EIDE drives work fine in another system, running Win 2K.
The problem sounds like you either lost the IDE channels on the MOBO or the chipset was updated with corrupt files.run everest home and see if there are current updates for the northbridge chipset. if you have 2 ide channels on the board ... PC Desktops

Slow transfer from SATA II (IDE) drive to 3 SATA II Drives configured as RAID (1). Drives wouldn't format until we installed the OS onto the RAID -- but it wouldn't install completely. We boot from the independent IDE SATA II drive but when we try to then copy files back to the formatted RAID (1) configuration the copying is very slow. Drivers from Tyan are updated (both chipset and SATA RAID) and we have set the drives to various configurations -- BIOS contoll, PIO, and DMA.
It appears you have made an error with the RAID configuration. RAID 1 is mirroring and requires an EVEN number of drives unless one is a hot spare. Also, RAID 1 is for redundancy and is slower than a single drive or RAID 0. Verify your RAID configura ... PC Desktops
