This behaved just like the Samsung drives usually behave – driver quits and nothing happens. Hi again, Finally I bougth 1G, and installed. Hot plugging the SATA drive which is supposed to be possible, froze the system except for a couple of seconds every couple of minutes whilst hot unplugging the drive restored operation as previously. I don’t recall what the largest partition size is when EnableBigLba is enabled in the windows registry. The time now is We receive spam notifications and will take immediate action!

Following some further testing I have managed to discover that it appears to asux an issue with the amount of installed RAM that causes the problem.


One odd thing is that if I reinstall the Raid driver without the drive connected all goes well and the Device Xsus reports a successful installation!

Please report all spam threads, axus and suspicious members. Hot plugging the SATA drive which is supposed to be possible, froze the system except for a couple of seconds every couple of minutes whilst hot unplugging the drive restored operation as previously.

I can try that shortly. 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.

I will post the results.
