Re: Vista Ultimate-adding hard drive

As Dustin suggests, it sounds like you have connected to a raid controller instead of a standard controller.

I have a Dell XPS 420 desktop with 750 GB, and 4 gb memory. I tried to add a Seagate 750GB hard drive today. I put it in according to Dell instructions. went to BIOS setup . the drive was enabled properly. Only with drive configuration in Auto Detect Raid was it detected. Then only as 40 gb. Re-booted and windows wouldn't boot up. What went wrong here?
