Well, I screwed up.

Yep, I made a big mistake.  I picked out a SATA card that I thought would do what we wanted, and also had RAID capabilities.  But, as it turns out, it is just a SATA RAID controller, and it can’t be used without RAID.  So now we have to return the card to Newegg and pick out another one.  I swear, the page about the card made it look like it would be a normal SATA controller, and also do RAID, which we wouldn’t use.  But it wouldn’t boot when I plugged our two hard drives into it, even though it detected them.  Its BIOS screen had only options involving RAID, though, so now I’m upset with myself.

On an unrelated note, it’ll be a few days until I can work on anything Intelligence-related much.
