Everything has the latest drivers-etc. During a fresh install of XP Pro, the board doesn't see the card and the SSD after the 1st restart of the installation process. XP loads the drivers for a Promise sata 150 or a SI 3124 adapter card and it sees the drive during format etc. It just doesn't see it after the restart! I'm down my last brand of card and RAID chipset. I don't think they're at fault. Am I missing something in the BIOS? This my second all nighter and I'm gettin' bummed.
Glenn, the Intel(R) Desktop Board D850EMD2 was released over 8 years ago, and therefore, it is expected that the motherboard will not support newer technologies such as SSD. Intel stopped providing live technical support for this motherboard in 2004.
I apologize for the inconvenience.
