You may need to disable the embedded RAID controller.

Go to advanced options in BIOS - advanced chipset and disable the SATA raid option for embedded controller.

An ORCA prompt message appears during the initialization process for that controller only if drives are detected.

The error is indicating that no drives have been connected to the E200 board, or the drives have been connected incorrectly.

The cables is connected directly to the mother board, I not clear on this but is necessary connect the hard drives to the RAID controller directly???
