The P5K motherboard has a four port vanilla ICH9. There
Is no RAID on the Intel, when the chip has only four ports?
So S1, S2, S3, S4 are not RAID.

In the P5K manual, the RAID function exists on the Jmicron
Controller. One drive connector is internal (SATA_E2, on the
Left of the motherboard picture in the manual), and one
Drive connector is external (F_ESATA on the back I/O area).
This is not convenient for building a RAID0. (The intent is
To allow making RAID1 backup disks.) You'll have to snake
The SATA cable back into the computer, if you hope to use
It with two internal SATA disks.

The manual has full instructions for setting up RAID on the
Jmicron JMB363. The manual says to set the Jmicron to RAID
Mode in the BIOS. Two disks must be connected, in order to
Be able to press <control-J> at the start of the BIOS, to
Enter the Jmicron RAID setup in the BIOS. At that point, you
Can declare an array in the BIOS setup.

Then, when Windows is installing from the Microsoft install CD,
You’ll need to press F6 and offer the Jmicron RAID driver.

Section 5.5 of the Asus manual, describes how to make
A RAID driver floppy. The application in the mother board cd is available for make drivers disk

DRSS is right, got it working that way. Not very reliable to install raid0 (like I did), with that one cable in the back. If I knew this beforehand I would not have bought this MoBo.

The board is bollox

I have asked Asus help desk for help for the same issue.
Their answer was:

"The only way to raid drives on this board is to have an external and a internal (or a header adapter to external) on the j-micron controller. There is no way of raiding the internal Controller."

Very disappointing for such an advanced board

New sata harddisk not detected

The mother boards from that time you had to install the RAID drivers to use SATA drives. The drive disc which came with the mother board should have the drive, but I would suggest going to ASUS's web site and download the latest drivers. Click the link below, Select which OS (Operating System) you are using, Next click the little + box next to "IDE" and the drivers needed will be listed.

I don't see my RAID drives after reinstalling Vista 32

Usually, you have to install the raid drivers during Vista installation , not after. have the device that has the raid drivers on it plugged in when you install Vista, then when you're asked the LOAD DRIVERS option, click load drivers. This will install the raid drivers prior to Vista OS installation.

RAID 0 on Asus motherboard

Hi macjax,

I agree Asus wasn't using their noodle when they came up with that one. With the JMicron Controller your sort of forced to use an external for raid. But getting another Raid controller is simple. I like High Point Rocket Raid, and it's simple to install and setup. HERE's a link to there site. The main reason that they should be using an external is for hotswapability. But for some reason JMicron wanted to allow for more drives. Can you image having for external drives!!! Crazy.

Anyway, if you get another controller card, you'll go through needing to load the drivers and change Bios to accept them, and at the same time you can disconnect the JMicron raid. As far as speed is concerned, you're still on the SATA platform, I find no difference on speed unless you have two drives of different sizes.

Good Luck

Asus K8S-MS boot problem..

my understanding is that if you do not have other drives in a raid configuration you do not need the raid driver loaded ,have your hard drive plugged into the first sata slot, then format the hard drive ,instal o/s and all should be good.

hope this is of help
