  • A couple of points,

    Vista drivers 'usually' cause problems with WHS, you should only use Windows Server 2003 certified drivers.

    How are the disks set up on the ide controller, are they set as individual drives - JBODS or what?

    Have you run check disk on the drive and what was the result?
