Hi sorry but I am totally lost, please hold my hand on this one :-)

Ok I have the following connected

PRIM IDE1 - none
SEC IDE1 - none
PRIM IDE2 - DVD RW
SEC IDE2 - none

Then just left of the floppy connector I have 2 serial ata connectors, SEC
on top and PRIM just below it called SATA1 SATA2

Then below that I have 2 RAID serial ata connectors, called PRI_SATA and
SEC_SATA, next to eack other, sec to left

I have connected my sata hd to both SATA1 and PRI_SATA with same result, I
have played with the bios settings, but am not sure what you mean by disable
Promise RAID and set to IDE, I think I know how to disable the onboard
Promise controller but how do I set it (what is "it") to IDE
