Promise 378 Controller RAID 0+1 0 = 2 SATA Hardrives & 2 IDE Hardrives for Mirror
Posted on 2004-08-07
I have setup a Asus P4C800-E Deluxe MBO using it's Promise 378 Controller for RAID 0+1 configuration.
The hard drives are 2 Western Digital SATA 120GB and 2 IDE 120 GB drives (1 Western Digital and 1 Seagate) All are 7,200rpm.
After setting up the BIOS and then using the Promise Utility the Array 1 looks odd.
Array 1 = 1 WD drive is set as STRIPE, but the second shows FREE.
If I setup the Array with both as Yes the Array shows 240GB. It should be 128GB according to a previous installation.
Not only that, but the IDE drives are not seen in the hard drive list in the utility. (They are seen when the OS is loaded as drives E & F) in WInXP Pro.
How do I configure the Array and how do I get the IDE Drives to be seen in the Array selection area?
I beleive the SATA drives are set correctly. The IDE drives are set as 1 primary and one slave.
