    The controller worked well with an older machine which passed away last month. On the new machine no drives are detected. Any idea?

    Same cables and drives from dead machine? No changes in cable positions or drive IDs? Termination in same location(s)?

    Same controller, same cable, same drives, but different board: was MSI 645E Max-U SIS645DX, now is GA-MA78G-DS3H.

    Got confused by controller message: "BIOS not installed!" Assumed the controller was not set up properly. However the real meaning is: "No disks found!" Checked cable connector on the PCI card and inserted it properly. Everything is now working fine.
