OK, just about to embark on my first self build project. All the gear has arrived and now the time has come to assemble it all...

Kit:
AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego
MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum nForce4 Ultra
Corsair 2GB DDR XMS3200C2PT TwinX (2x1GB) CAS2
Leadtek PX7800GTX-TD256 GeForce 7800 GTX
Western Digital Raptor 74GB
Western Digital Caviar Special Edition 200GB 2000JS SATA-II
LG GSA-4163BA 16x16 DVD±RW Dual Layer ReWriter
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS 7.1 THX Sound Card (OEM)
Hiper HPU-4K580-MK Type R 580W Modular ATX2.2 PSU

Now put it all together, but running into some issues already (my hardware skillz are far from 1337)

BIOS is not seeing my HDD's

I have the raptor attached to the Silicone image controller and the WD200JS attached to the NV Controller (SATAII).

BIOS sees the Raptor, but when I run the windows installer, it's only seeing the WD200JS? Even after doing F6 and installing 3rd party drivers.

I want to install Windows on the Raptor (obviously)

Have performed a low level format on the Rator using the SI raid config util, but really stumped from there... SATA is all new to me.

Just for refference, it may be that you hadn't set your bios up correctly, for some reason some mobos need you to select SCSI instead of ATA when using SATA drives to see them correctly.

Don;t worry, sorted it by just using the NV Controller
