I’m trying to revive my 2011-vintage gaming peecee but for some reason the PATA drives would be detected but not mount. Well, I think I found the problem. Yup - that would do it. SATA is such a joy in comparison.

Now to try to recover the data on the RAID 10 array. 4 hard drives spinning away for a whopping total of 320gb of space. Nowadays I have 480gb SSDs sitting in my scrap pile that will hold more, consume less power and heat than this array even though they are shit compared to other SSDS.
