Hard drives and RAID

Could you please tell me how to install a third hard drive which would be separate from my two other drives which are in a RAID 0 array. Would a separate raid controller card make my system faster than using the onboard Intel ICH9R controller? Thank you.

I have two WD1600s, in RAID 0 configuration, on my Dell XPS, XP. One has failed. Can I just buy another one and reload the OS? Will any WD1600 do?


If you have a Raid 0, then both drives are tied into one. You could remove the bad drive, and just use the leftover one. But you would need to disable RAID in the BIOS.

Unless you know how you benefit from a Raid 0, I do not recommend keeping a Raid 0 if you have important files you need to keep.

you could also buy another drive, disable Raid, and install the operating system on the first drive, and keep leftover files like pictures etc on the second drive.

It looks like you have two arrays here. The first one being a mirrored RAID array and has only one disk. This means that the other disk has failed in some sort. This does not mean that the drive is bad, just the RAID failed for some reason. You will need to rebuild the RAID if you want to maintain the same level of redundancy.

You can just attempt a rebuild the RAID to the same drives but if this fails you will want to replace the bad drive. In order to do this you will need to make sure you can tell which drive is which. You do not want to mirror the bad drive to the good one.

If attempting a rebuild to the existing drive does not work or is not an option (because the failed drive could really be bad), you will need to determine which physical drive needs to be replaced. You may be able to hot-swap the drive but if you can power things down, that is always safest. Once the new drive is installed, you can rebuild to it and all should be well after that.

In bios make sure the raid chipset is active. Ususally there's 2 one needs drivers one doesn't. I use the one that doesn't then in bios there should be a way to set up your array. Raid 0 is striping mode so you should only see one hard drive,the d drive should be the cd/dvd device. If this is right then you did it right.If it were raid 1 then you would see both hard drives,because one is mirroring the main drive for backup.

You may need to load third party drivers for them. During install windows asks you if you want to load them. Not knowing what kind of drives they are though i cant tell you what drivers, sorry.

Pci ide controller for third hard disk


You need to enter into scsi bios first, then do an autodetect for hard drive, this will set the IDE/SCSI hard drive on raid controller.

To enter SCSI control you need to press the same key stated on screen on startup (F6 I assume) I think F3 is just boot settings.

If the card do not enter regularly in CMOS settings for the raid then this card is defective.

HOW TO CONFIGURE RAID


I needed to see your board & can at this site. http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=493&DetailName=Manual&MenuID=1&LanID=0

This is good for you as well. It shows me & you that your board can handel 4 each DMA/ATA-133 (Ultra) IDE Hard drives/ CD/DVD drives IDE-1Primary & IDE-2 Primary Slave. Each can run 2 IDE drives. Also 4 each Serial ATA SATA's. Two separate SATA controllers with integrated PHYs, each supporting two
drives in master mode. In your manual on pg.32 & 33 will help you to setup a RAID if you wish. Or you can also set the RAID to IDE which will allow you to use all your SATA hard disks as a single drive without setting up a RAID system. The site above supplies all your drivers needed & manual. If you need more help please let me know here.
Luck!
