    Can I do this??

    I am trying to build my File/Media server, everything was going fine until I went to install windows and before it starts to copy files it crashes to blue screen.

    I nailed down the problem to having 2x Adaptec 1200a ide raid cards in at once.
    I took one out and it worked fine. Can I have 2 RAID cards in at once?

    I never tried a different slot, but they weren't near each other on the board, I don't think there is a conflict anywhere.
    BTW I have 4x200gb hooked up to one. Going ot do jbod
    and 2x250gb hooked up to the other, I want to do RAID w/parity

    Whats the problem?

    System:
    NF7-s v2.0
    2500 barton
    2x256 3200
    true power 480
    nvidia 5200xt
    cd-rom

    The Adaptec 1200a does not support multiple controllers on a single chassis. You could get another card from a different manufacturer and it would likely work fine. In this case, it's listed in their documentation.

    You can also try calling their technical support to see if they have any BIOS update (even beta) that would allow the two cards to work together.
