Build was pretty easy, but I am having the same problem with the HD not being recognized (or the array) and still loading windows except only on 137gig of the 250 gig HD. I have reloaded xp a few times, done the whole enablebiglba because I have an original ver. of XP, and updated Bios, and added the service packs. Windows is not activated yet, my Key code is out of installs and have to call MS to renew...that will be fun.
The funny thing is, the bios sees the the HD and sees it at the correct size. The windows system info sees the HD as the right size and under device manager it sees the drive with its full possible capacity and shows me the unallocated space (107 GB). What's the deal? I have read the stuff from intel, but have not called their $25 an incident phone number yet.
Right now I am formatting the unallocated space and have assigned a drive letter of G to it. I guess I'll see what happens....
HD is a WD 250GB SATA.
How do you email Intel, can't find an address?
Any thoughts or solutions?
P.S. Farmatting just finished and drive partition is shown under windows explorer; assuming it is now usable. Need to change sizes of partitions though.

I got a new copy of XP with sp2 from my friend at Microsoft. I am now just waiting for the final word on the Intel board, which might be they are no good.

I wish there was a place where people who splurged on this top end gear and have underperforming systems could go and get solace and comfort.
My forums are getting a lot of negative Bad Axe 2 feedback from the community. At first I thought it was a few bad eggs, but I'm having the same problems and over the past month the number of posts is quickly increasing. The views on the threads are now greater than 10,000 visitors. This tells me that they are too high to be nothing.
The main issues are as follows:
1) There is a message at boot about no hard disk found
2) Letters appear at the lower right corner during post (EB, 94, 0)
3) The LED Light Doesnâ€™t Work (When the Marvel Controller is turned off the HDD light just stays on)
Here are a number of the posts that are going on in my forums this monthâ€¦ I just wanted to let you know what is happeningâ€¦ A new BIOS was supposed to come out to fix the controller problem this week, but they forgot to put the controller fix in it. Iâ€™m not sure how it was forgotten as people are really getting upset and returning their board and buying other brands. Maybe you can light a fire under some people or see when a fix is really coming!

Can you please tell them to "enable" their email-support for this board under http://supportmail.intel.com/scripts-em ... ,2386,2578 !?
At the moment i always get this: "Intel does not support this product via email."
