Hello all! Thanks ahead of time for the help.
I have a Hitachi-LG 46dh drive. Now, my computer is a dell dimension 8200, and it doesn't have any sata connections to the motherboard. I bought this card: http://tekgems.com/Products/la-pci22-vt6421a.htm.
I installed the card with drivers with driver 5.70b.
I put the drive in CodeB (im pretty sure its in Code B, flashing green led, press eject 2ce to open or close etc.) and connect to the sata connected to this pci card.
When i turn on my comp, first windows freezes at boot screen (windows logo and the blue horizontal scrolling bar). I eject and 'ject' until windows boots up like I've read. This is where I cant figure it out.
Windows does not recognize the drive. When I go to hardware manager i can see the VIA VT6421A RAID card with the yellow triangle and exclamation over the raid icon. When i go to properties I see that is has a CODE10 and cannot start the drive. I've tried different drivers, I did the crosswire codeb multiple times, and still get the code10.
Basically my question is, anyone with this card have this problem? Any ideas on how to fix it?
