I think this is what may be going on here. I will have to try swapping the optical drive ports with the HDD ports and see what happens. I thought I hooked them up so that the HDDs were in the gen 3 ports but could be wrong. Will have to open her up to check it out.
Also may have to check my motherboard CD for extra drivers that I may have missed by accident although I thought I did that right after the OS.
Thanks for the info... thought it may have to do with the different controllers.
