Double check ‘Drive Assignment’ that it shows: What I am seeing now with the fastbuild Utility in promise Technology is I think you are saying I can use this to copy the data from a bad drive to a new drive if i set it up that way and save the whole hard drive to a new hard drive.

And none of those options after entering them has promise Dela.

MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR SATA/Raid Bios screen

So no worry about re-formating the damaged drive before I get the info from it. Originally posted by continuum: Joined Jul Posts 9. One option is to hit ctrl-Y to save this setting which i am guessing to do. Do not have the floopy that came with board although i did buy it new and would not matter because I do not have a floopy drive attached to machine.

If booting off the disk is not required I don’t think you need floppy, edlta I understood it like you wanted an emergency back-up with the data over to Daddy’s disk.

I don’t see any info on this in the manual, and I have searched extensively today trying to get answers.


Check and see if there is an option in the bios to change the RAID controller’s configuration to a normal drive controller. Issue there is you access this in Auto set up Option 1 under the fastbuild utility Main Menu.

Can’t find SATA drive on MSI K7N2 Delta

I also like the suggestion of the linux way of trying to save some files. I did take note having the new drive set up in an array and deltx taking it out again did not cause any issues and it looks like it will switch back and forth. Will give it a go and report back.

To get the ser1 input to work by doing this array thing seems to be confusing or am I not setting up the array correctly? Thanks again for all the help. You should be able to define individual arrays with only a single disk, effectively being JBOD. You have to define a RAID 0 array in order to use it as a boot drive. Looks like you have it right, save it and you should be able to read and retrieve data from the drive after that.

Thank you so much for staying with me on this. There has to be another way so that two SATA drives can be installed independantly of one another.

I think what will happen now is install windows again and then make the bad drive a second and use some type of data recovery program to try and get the data my wife needs back. You guys are really the best. I can’t say thanks enough for all the help everyone has posted here to help me out with this issue. Maybe I have this all wrong but isn’t sata raid setup for adding a aata to run along and mirror another disk with the same info which improves performance and you have a back up if one or the other crashes?


Thank you very much for response.

Can MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR SATA RAID controller do JBOD?

You could try jumper it to SATA 1. Your computing wife will need another disk, so you could wait and attach the suspected drive later to her system. I wanted to set up sata on my MSI motherboard k7j2 so i could read a damaged drive that is having issues from another computer and save the data. And what you found is the controller, which seems to work well. I did not mention that the error I get from the wifes computer is during boot up the warning is S. Concern is the drive may be to large but I think I had larger drives on machine in the past.

You posted while I was still typing but as mentioned above it seems you need to download the drivers if you don’t have the floppy.

If you never installed the drivers then no SATA until you do.
