You need to turn the raid back on and go into the raid utility. Once in the raid utility u should see a function to Break or Delete the raid group. Do this and then the drive should revert to a non-member disk and therefore a single drive. Once this is done u can turn the raid off again.

Suggest Hard drive for ASUS K8N Motherboard


ASUS K8N Motherboard support: -
2 x Serial ATA cables - 2 x UltraDMA 133/100/66/33
1 x 2-port SATA power cables - 2 x Serial ATA, support RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 0+1, JBOD

Your mainboard support both "IDE & SATA" interface, so you can use IDE or SATA Hard Drives.

Hope it helps.

I am using a single SATA II Drive in a new system, GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P, AMD 790X & SB750 chipsets. I know I can let the SATA II be a "Native IDE" but isn't that loosing any benefit of the SATA II...


The "Native IDE" mode causes the motherboard to "report" to the Operating System that the installed SATA drive is an IDE drive, rather than reporting "no IDE drives installed", and then requiring the Operating System to load a SATA device-driver to interface with the SATA drive.

Using RAID to "mirror" your hard-drive is a very-cool way to provide a "real-time" and "up-to-date" backup.

Should one of your drives suddenly "die", the other will continue to work, and you can buy another hard-drive, re-establish the "mirroring", and continue to work productively -- no fiddling with offline/stale backups.

I have a asus AV7 with a amd 64 bit processor 2 gigs of ram windows Xp Pro 7 dvd burners NEC 16x and 2 120 gig 133HZ.sata drives and 4 133 ATA hard drives 133 maxtor 120 gig configured in a raid stripped 0...


There is a glitch on those AV7 boards ata controler I think. Check the website for the new drivers supposedly they help, but all they did was crash my raid after I installed them. I ended up cloning the whole raid over to a single large sata drive and put in an ide to sata card (non raid unfortunately) and the problem went away. I only had the problem under very heavy disk loading. It seemed to not be quite so bad when I added some additional cooling aimed at the motherboard. As to if it will help your software problem I am unsure. However the only time mine did the mini dump was when I was doing heavy video editing work and after nixing the raid it fixed it, But then again a bad drive in a raid can cause that also.

Want to run both Raid 5 (4 drives) and a single SATA boot drive


Download the latest beta BIOS 1238. I had the same problem when adding a Samsung 1TB HDD to my RAID config. Updating to BIOS v1238 solved the Intel RAID Matrix "hanging" instantly.

You can't download it through the official Asus support page yet, but there's a topic in the Asus support forum with a link. You could also call Asus support and request the file, or just download it here: http://rapidshare.com/files/186891601/P5B-Deluxe_1238.rar :)

Raid 0 on Intellistation 6221?


That particular work station comes with both IDE and SCSI drive interface controllers. The IDE drive should be used for your OS. The SCSI drives for your data storage. Now, the issue is to get the SCSI to work in RAID_0 as I understand.

You iwll need a RAID controller such as Adaptec AHA-3940AU WD SCSI Host Controller, which may be found on eBay (used) for a very affordable price. The driver software may be downloaded directly from Adaptec, so I suggest you do that in the iterim peroid, and store drivers on a USB thumb drive.

Hope this helps you.

Software raid/ide


it won't touch them, it should ask you which partition you want to boot from, or which version of windows if your boot.ini files are on the same drive.

Slow transfer from SATA II (IDE) drive to 3 SATA II Drives configured as RAID (1). Drives wouldn't format until we installed the OS onto the RAID -- but it wouldn't install completely. We boot from the...


It appears you have made an error with the RAID configuration. RAID 1 is mirroring and requires an EVEN number of drives unless one is a hot spare. Also, RAID 1 is for redundancy and is slower than a single drive or RAID 0. Verify your RAID configuration and make sure you have RAID 1 and not RAID 0 or RAID 5 which can be an even or odd number of drives.

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!
