Computer won't boot with Sata drives plugged in.
The short version of what I am trying to do is to use all 4 Sata ports that are on my motherboard (abit LG-75) and then set up a software raid. The problem is that when I have 4 Sata drives plugged in, the computer won't boot past the part where the Bios detects the 4 drives. I have played around with Bios settings and changing the ports that each drive is plugged into. As well as only having 1 or 2 plugged in. I have had relatively limited luck getting the computer to boot even with only 1 or 2 drives plugged in. I also checked abit's website and although there are bios updates for my motherboard, none of the descriptions seem to indicate any fix to the way it handles the Sata drives.
Any advice on where to look next would be much appreciated.
P.S. Am I barking up the wrong tree with the Bios, are sata drives handled by the bios or by an intel chipset...does this work independently of the bios?
