      I have SATA RAID (ICH8R)

       
    • It seems that grub4dos is trying to access an ide disk instead of a scsi disk...

      One thing that you could try is to edit the c:\menu.lst and change (hd0,0) for (sd0,0).

      I also have a SATA RAID and a mobo using the Intel ICH8R.  I tried changing hd0,0 to sd0,0 in menu.lst but I still get the error messages about hd0.

      I'm having the same problem with the same hardware - SATA RAID and a motherboard using
      the ICH8R.  I edited menu.lst to sd0,0 but I still got the same error. I just tried using sda0,0 instead and also got the same error.

      Thanks,
