Raid Raid Raid Uggh. Raid Transfer Question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok, I will make this short and sweet.

Finally upgraded my rig.

Went from an XFX 780i mobo (with NVIDIA RAID) which had 2 drives in Raid0

to

A Maximus IV -Extreme Board with Intel & Marvell Raid controller

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/Maximus_IV_ExtremeZ/


I did not image the drive before blowing up the old system, and I really dont want to tear it all down again, put the old back together, just to image the drive.

Is there any way to make the old raid compatable with either the marvell or Intel raid controller?

Or, is this a viable option. I have not tried yet, still in the "oh *****" I already had to tear it apart once to put the God D#m* bluetooth in. Not again! Stage....

Now I remember why I disliked RAID.... frown.gif

Also, anyone familiar with this board know if there is anything special to do to make the SSD Cache feature to work to its fullest potential?



Thanks in advance!

Charlie

I've got some sad news for you Chlywily, as far as I know there is no compatibility between the mobo RAID systems. The thread here also uses a similar setup and the advice was to backup and restore. If it were two different ICH10R boards (for example), it could work. It is worth a shot if you were really desperate to try the RAID on the new system, but I doubt it would be recognized since the hardware is pretty different.

As for the software linked to, I assume that it is technically possible to emulate the different drive (nVidia vs Intel) as the RAID setup is software based anyway. I haven't used the software listed, but users on other forums have said it sometimes works. A key point to note that was raised was leave the mode in the BIOS on ACHI rather than RAID, and with another working/bootable drive (if you have one), load the software and try to backup or save the RAID contents elsewhere.

To save time you could always try the software you linked to first and if it fails, redo the former system. Ultimately, while any of these ideas might work, your safest and best bet is to recreate your old machine. It would definitely be a headache as you describe, but it would ensure that the data is read correctly.

Regarding the Z68 SSD cache, the link SSD cache guide gives a a step-by-step procedure how to work the caching. Across my path it has been hinted that ASUS has its own SSD caching, which is not to be confused with the one on the Z68 (Intel variety).

Good luck,

That's what I thought. But I do have some good news! I also had 2 1tb drives on the system, and low and behold, I ghosted the raid array! So all is well! Thanks so much for your insite! +REP!
