It’s all explained there. Like always, any help or suggestions greatly appreciated. Your computing wife will need another disk, so you could wait and attach the suspected drive later to her system. SATA drivers and if so where would I find them? So no worry about re-formating the damaged drive before I get the info from it. Any thoughts on this or do you feel after doing as you suggest it will not ask me to re-format drive?

Hard Disk discovered the disk could be bad. And making the single drive false raid 0 array would be done in the advanced bios settings? You guys are really the best. SATA drivers and if so where would I find them? Sorry if long winded but just want to make sure. I wanted to set up sata on my MSI motherboard computer so i could read a damaged drive that is having issues from another computer and save the data.

Also mentioned was ensuring drivers were loaded in c drive.

run sata hard drive on K7N2 Delta series

The sata setup was just to have the ability to read the drive and thus wanting to have sata running. Thinking I had to install a new drive no matter what, I bought a new sata drive and went into msii array setup and was able to add it as a drive and recognize it.

I tried to attach it to my trusty K7N2 board on my ,7n2 computer and do a check on the disk and see if I can get back any data which is very precious. If not I would guess I enter the define array and set the 0 array up which does nothing but lets me add a new sata drive to the mix which is the damaged one and not copy any files from the existing hard drive running on the Kn72 onto it and then hopefully will be able to then read the data I want off of it.


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 aata the whole hard drive to a new hard drive.

I also like the suggestion of the linux way of trying to save some files. Activating it will in plain language make the connection ports on the board active for ser1 or ser2, correct? I would guess the drivers not installed controls this correct?

Please login or register. The first one with the 3 ide. To run the live CD, once you boot from Ubuntu in sats menu choose “try ubuntu mso any changes to your pc” sentence may vary. I have not yet been able to find a guide, just the Have your computing friend in life gotten herself a new disk yet?

Also took note the drive while plugged into power was very warm to the touch. It’s all explained there. MSI is earthquakingly slow today, so I have trouble being more specific. Instead of trying to get it to work in your PC there is another option. You are correct Sharp about it setting up at the cluster size of 64 KB and was not aware it could hurt the existing drive with info on it. If booting off staa disk is not required I don’t think you need floppy, and I understood it like you wanted an emergency back-up with the data over to Daddy’s disk.


Am I correct on all this?

Under define array it gives first line as array 1 and then you select the Raid Mode, total drives capacity and status for the array 1. One option is to hit ctrl-Y to save this setting which i am guessing to do.

Your computing wife will need another saga, so you could wait and attach the suspected drive later to her system.

Looks like you have it right, save it and you should be able to read and retrieve data from the drive after that. It did not recognize the drive. I am guessing I need to k7n some settings to hopefully get board to recognize drive but not sure which ones.

Plugged it into the SER1 on my board and booted up.
