I have a computer that was built as a server that I'm using as a home computer. The OS loaded was Server SBS 2008 but I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. It has the following hardware, Q9550 CPU, Intel S3210SH motherboard, 8GB (2x4) G.SKILL F2-6400CL6S2GBMQ, using 3 1TB WD WD1001FALS HD's RAID 5. I recently had one of these drives fail and while troubleshooting I remember seeing something on line about incompatibility with this drive and this board and/or using this drive with a RAID array. I'm wondering if the problems listed below are due to this or something else?
After the drive failed I replaced it and the RAID array rebuilt itself, now when I play a Blu-ray, just as the movie begins to display the system blue screens. From there when its restarted it will not boot until I manually adjust the boot order so that the RAID array is first. Once I do this all is well but if I run the Blu-ray again this happens again.
My question is, is the board my problem due to its incompatibility with the OS, HD's and/or RAID array? If so should Intel motherboard
work? Finally, if I use the board in the link, should this RAM work in it also? Thanks in advance.
