2 very easy questions about SATA and RAID 0
Posted on 2003-12-03
Okay I have an ASUS P4P800 mobo and it has the option of using a RAID 0 configuration as long as you use the SATA interface. Here are the questions:
I'm building the computer from the ground up, is it easy to just plug in the primary HDD via SATA interface like it is with the ATA interface? Is there something i'm going to have to do with the BIOS? (I don't even have a video card in this PC yet, so I really haven't had a chance to check out the BIOS for such an option)
I am planning on getting just 1 SATA HDD for right now, but later on I want to implement RAID 0, is it pretty easy to configure RAID once I get the second HDD down the road sometime?
Sorry about the stupid questions but I have no experience with RAID or SATA.
