Attempting Reinstall of WHS with new system drive & Can't get all drives listed RRS feed

  • Question

  • I NEED HELP>>>My system drive is starting to fail so I am attempting to swap out the old Maxtor 250GB with a WD 500GB drive.  I have a total of 19 HDD including the new system drive.  15 of the drives are connected to (2) Supermicro AOC_SAT2_MV8 8 port SATA cards and the other 4 HDD are connected to the Supermicro X7SBE mbo SATA ports.  When I boot from the WHS DVD I get the list of drives which is the 4 HDDs connected to the mbo.  I load drivers for the SATA cards and then I get the 15 drives connected to the cards, but I lose the 4 HDD's connected to the mbo including the system drive?  No matter what I have tried I can't get all the drives to display so if I go to next screen it only gives me the option of a NEW INSTALL which I don't want to do.  Any Help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
