Raid with dual P-ATA
Posted on 2004-09-11
i have a Asus P4PE-GB.L.R, wich support Raid 0 and 1. i bougth 2 maxtor 120Gb 7200pm 8mb cache to make a raid 0 (the comp will be used for video editing). i enabled that promise controller in the bios and all. the problem is when configuring the raid setup, the promise controller only detect one HDD. all connector, cable and HDD work. what make me scared is that i found that on the asus web site about my motherboard:
RAID 0 supported by single Parallel ATA with single or dual Serial ATA connections,or dual Serial ATA connections alone.
RAID 1 supported by single Parallel ATA with single Serial ATA connection or dual Serial ATA connections alone.
so raid with dual P-ATA isn't possible and i have to change my HDD to the S-ATA version of it?
anyone got raid 0 working with 2 P-ATA drive?
