weird bx133-raid problem??
I recently bought an Abit BX-133 Raid and I thought everything would be fine. Installed the motherboard in my windows system without problems(at first! hehe!). Before I had my old Abit BF6 installed and thought tere shouldn't be much problems as both use BX-chipset. But then I recognized that my LPT1 Port was always regarded as ECP Printer port by windows.
I could set printer mode to everything in bios, it was always seen as ECP(I tried SPP, EPP, ECP, EPP+ECP, but nothing helped) and got a conflict . But when I wanted to do a bios update I fond out that my floppy didn't work on that board (I tried it again on my BF6 and it worked fine. strange) and I can't make a bios update. I had the same problem some time ago, when I swapped mobo's and found that I could solve the floppy problem by using the floppy cable that came with the new motherboard, but unfortunality I didn't get the floppy cable with my BX-133 because I bought it over eBay.
But what I think is strange, is that the floppy cable of Abit' s BF6 doesn't function correctly on the BX-133 or there's an incompatibility with the bios, who knows.
If you think you can help me, please post a message here or contact me via e-mail or ICQ.
Thanks in advance.

There could be an IRQ conflict between your devices, just a thought....

Did you installed all drivers from the CD that come with the MotherBoard? when i installed the drivers for my SB Live! Value on my fresh installed Win98SE I just couldn't go in win, so in safemode i uninstalled the drivers for the SB, installed the drivers for the ABIT bx133 RAID from the CD and all worked fine.
