I'm guessing that for some reason or the other the controller is set to 'hardware raid' mode (which OpenBSD does not support) instead of a more useful SATA mode: > pciide0 at pci0 dev 31 function 2 "Intel 82801HBM RAID" rev 0x04: DMA, > channel 0 wired to native-PCI, channel 1 wired to native-PCI > pciide0: using apic 2 int 19 for native-PCI interrupt See if the BIOS offers a choice of modes for the controller, hopefully there is a SATA option. - Peter -- Peter N.
