I have a MachSpeed MSNV-939 MotherBoard with on board S-ATA . It is using Nvidia Nforce4. Running a dual boot Windows XP/OpenSuSe via GRUB. I also have opened up my XboX and have TS-H943 Drive.
When I boot the computer and XboX at the same time, BIOS shows that it picks up the Samsung drive. But after windows loads, I have nothing showing that there is an active connection. I have also loaded OpenSuSe as well as Knoppix just to see if they notice the drive....*they don't*
Ater lurking this site for the last three days, and trying everything I can think of, I'm down to asking for help.
I have tried changing drivers from Nvidia to Generic Windows drivers, - If I done it properly, It didn't work.
I have tried changing bios settings.......raid/sata with no avail.
I have looked into portIO32.....??? but it says that driver is not the right one for my hardware.
I have read about 15 different tutorials.
(and rebooted about 100 times LOL)
Any help would be appreciated.
