RAID Will Not Work!
Posted on 2004-09-25
I am trying to set up a Raid 1 on my P4C800-E.
After successfully creating and duplicating the drives in the Promise setup app, I then configure all of my BIOS settings for RAID.
When I reboot, I get the Windows XP flash screen momentarily and then I see the BSOD screen for a split second. (So quick that I cannot even read it)
My computer then reboots, and trys again, only to repeat the failure to boot into windows.
I have tried loading the Promise drivers both before and after setting up the RAID array, and nothing gets me any further.
Both my drives are the same - WD SATA 120GB.
One thing I am in question about is the harddrive jumper - The label on the harddrives say that the jumper settings are unnecessary with SATA, but the ASUS instructions say to set them to Master/Slave for RAID - Which one is correct?
Also, which is the best to use for RAID - Promise, or Intel chipset?
Thanks a lot for any help on this - I really want to get this RAID thing off the ground!
