Intel SRT question.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok I finally got me a tiny SSD that I was going to use for my boot OS, but im just paranoid about the SSD failing so im going to use it with my Seagate 500GB HDD in my sig for Intel SRT.

My question is this. I am going to transfer all my music/pics/games to my 2nd hard drive but when I reinstall my OS im going to have everything on my Seagate only and put this 2nd hard drive in another PC, so I will install the OS to my Seagate, but will there be any problem adding another hard drive to my PC since the BIOS will be set to RAID mode for SATA because of Intel SRT?

I'm a newb at RAID stuff and dont know much about it, just dont know how it will take adding another hard drive to it

From what I gather there is not much of an existing protocol for SRT with two hdds and one ssd. So most people partition the ssd and run two independent instances of SRT one for each hdd. I am not sure if you might be able to run the HDDs as a JBOD array with SRT caching only the first Hard drive. but you could just run SRT on the main drive and leave the other drive alone and have it show up separate in windows.

Oh I didnt say exactly what im doing, Im going to be running exclusivly with one HDD and the SSD for caching.. I am just wondering how to add the other hard drive to get my files off it... never done this with a "RAID" setup as per the BIOS.. just wondering if im going to run into anything.
