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.

The RAID would not work properly if both hard drives are not of the same size.

Your best bet will be to have all three disks plugged in the computer first. Then use a third party software (there are some free on the internet) to mirror the contents of your 500GB drives to the 1 TB drive.

Remove the 3 hard drives and install Windows on the SSD. After successfully installing Windows you can add the hard drives and create your raid array later. Or even better, pick up a cheap RAID card so your CPU doesn't have to do all of the RAID controller work.

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.

Updat to new sata hard drive from old idie hard drive.wont reconi


Hi, you will need to load the sata raid drivers when installing the OS. Some off the older versions of xp will not have these, when windows is installing it will ask if you need to install a 3rd party raid driver press F6. later on it will ask you to insert the raid driver disk. which you may have to do/make yourself if you haven't already got one.

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!

Raid none define


Try getting into your BIOS (usually F2 key at first screen, could also be F10 or Del) and check if your hard drive is in RAID or IDE mode. SATA drives can be run in either. Although it is somewhat odd that a simple mem upgrade could case a raid problem.
