SA6R RAID & Win2000

I have purchased an ABIT SA6r mother board and have configured the bios as a RAID 1 HDD controller.  My two drives are configured as Master/Slave on IDE3.  The RAID appears to work ok with Win2000.  The problem is when I test for fault mode.  I power down the system and disconnect the primary drive.  The system powers up and through the magic of RAID the mirrored drive boots up the OS.  The problem is that just after I logon to win2000, I get a paging file dialog that tells me to increase the size of my paging file.  I am lost!!!  The system works fine when both drives are operational.  Anyone have an answer???

It could be that for some reason the paging file is not being mirrored.
The message you receive is simply a warning and should not be taken as a serious error.
You can simply increase the paging file size as requested.

I hope this helps !

-See if clearing the pagefile at shutdown resolves the problem.

That is the problem, I click on OK to change the Page file and the system loops back to the login screen.  Basically I am stuck in an infinet loop!!!!!

I have condsidered clearing the paging file at shutdown.


Thanks,

Argula you would have to re-connect both drives first. then Make the registry change.. It will be mirrored onto the second disk..

I don't know if this will help but it something to consider and its supposed to help performance.
????according of microsoft???? :)

Try setting the paging file min and max to the same size. This is supposed to keep the paging file from becoming fragmented. Microsoft also recommends setting the paging file between 1.5 and 2.5 times the amount of physical memory in your system.

Good luck!
