The Motherboard BIOS makes no mention of SATA drives except in the section on booting and then it is just a general switch to either have the SATA boot bios enabled or disabled – it is currently enabled and I will try things with it disabled as well so that I have covered all the angles. I’m receiving no error message but the operating system’s volume control has no effect on the actual volume output. How satisfied are you with this reply? Since I don’t intend to move my operating system onto either of the SATA drives I haven’t tried the floppy boot disk method but do have the driver for this. Have I got a concept problem?

Just for completeness, I reinstalled the now partitioned and formatted Samsung drive into the PC in place of the Western Digital drive and managed to p4v8 the same result. I haven’t actually had both of the drives connected together which may affect the RAID part of the software.
I understand souund the VIA RAID software will actually handle single or non-raid configurations once the drives have been recognised but still no luck on this front and without the drives being seen by my system, I’m unable to partition or do anything sensible with the drives.
Do you have speakers or headphones connected to the computer? Since when are you facing this issue?
Will look some more. Thanks for your feedback, it helps us improve the site. One odd asrocck is that if I reinstall the Raid driver without the drive connected all goes well and the Device Manager reports a successful installation!

The EaseUS software should let you create a bootable optical disk where you should be able format each hard drive without booting to XP.
You will want to use GPT software to partition those 2 large hard drives. P4V88 and SATA HDDs I’ve taken note of the comments about a bootable optical disk and I may yet have to resort to that but since I’m not sure of the procedural details, I decided to try a couple of alternative ideas which came to mind while reading the replies.
