Question about Intel Motherboard
I am TRYING to set up a RAID 0 array on my PC.
System Information is as follows:
MOTHERBOARD - GIGABYTE GA-7VM400M
SATA RAID Controller Card - SABRENT SBT-SRD2 with Silicon Image Sil3512 chipset
HARD DRIVES - 2 x Western Digital WD2500 SATA HDDs plugged into the above controller card
OTHER - CD/DVD-ROM connected on the IDE bus
I want to install the OS (WinXP) on a striped RAID 0 array. I do not have any other HDD's connected with only the IDE DVD-ROM attached.
I don't know what I am doing wrong, but the RAID BIOS, where you configure your RAID setup doesn't appear when booting.
Is there anything I need to do to make it appear? ie install/integrate the RAID BIOS with my mobo BIOS?
Should it automatically appear as it is installed on the card which is plugged into the PCI bus?
I have been able to boot from the Win XP CD-ROM and add the RAID driver (by pressing F6 during setup), but when it gets to the point where it wants me to select the partition I want to install Windows on it obviously doesn't detect a HDD or the RAID array as I have not been able to set it up.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
