Do I really have a mirrored RAID?
Posted on 2005-04-18
I've purchased a Gigabyte motherboard, GA-7N400S-L that supports SATA RAID.
The RAID array consists of 2 Seagate 80GB drives, mirrored and set as boot device.
I added the nVidia RAID drivers via F6, but when it comes to installing Win2K, I must select from two different drives. Both are denominated as Drive 0 at ID 0 on Bus 0 on Atapi. However the first has the notation, "No disk in this drive" or something to that effect, and that it has "Unpartitioned space." The second contains the actual partition.
I have configured this setup before on an identical mobo, but with VIA drivers. Then I was not presented with two drives at Windows Install. This present setup somehow seems strange.
Do I really have a mirrored RAID? What step(s) have I missed if I don't?
