I dont think this applies. My Sata drive is set to RAID. I never get any error message of any kind.
Could it be a power issue, as I said before when I unplug the new HD windows boots, I tried also just running my SATA drive with the new HD only, and unplugging my 2nd EIDE drive, and it boots windows.
My Power supply is 300 W, might be 350W max, and I'm running two DVD burners, + 2 HD drives (both 250 GB each, one SATA one EIDE) when I try the new EIDE HD which is a 350 gb, with every thing else hooked up, windows wont boot. no error message is ever given.
I'm not sure how much power each HD requires, i didn't see it labeled on the HD's.
