Windows 7: asus 6pt + esata lacie max quadra 2tb

win 7 64 bit
asus 6pt + esata lacie max quadra 2tb

Hi, I would like to use the lacie max quadra 2tb as an esata media and backup disk
and would like to check some things in advance:

asus 6pt mobo is configured as ide (so not as raid), it detects the lacie in the bios under hard disks. win 7 doesn't recognize the disc (connected via esata connection)
SO how do i make the lacie work as esata disk?
Do i need to configure the mobo as raid and reinstall win 7 for it to work?

Does the motherboard have two sata controllers, one in the chipset for 6 sata ports and one seperate Gigabyte controller for two more?

In bios, change the port that you have the esata cable in to ACHI mode. Then in windows delete the sata driver from device manager.
Reboot and it should detect the achi sata port and then it should work.

I'm not sure, but I guess that you'll need to install the drivers for the JMicron controller that provides the eSATA port.
