Raid 0 Guide

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Okay, I know I’m beating a dead horse because I’d probably find the answers if I continued to look but it has been 2 days and I can’t find exactly what I need.

I bought another 74gb raptor drive and want to add it to my machine and raid 0 the two. I already have a 250gb Seagate for pictures and stuff and external 350gb Maxtor for backup. I want to use the onboard nVidia raid controller built in to the A8N32. Is there a step-by-step guide I can use to do this that would include everything from where to put the jumpers on the raptors (or remove completely) to installing the OS or how to slipstream it? Would nVidia, WD or ASUS be the place to look for such a guide?

Also, from what I’ve read I don’t believe I can migrate the data on my current raptor to the new raid. Is that true?

that's true. unless you have a third drive to use as a place to ghost your raptor...then you could take the image and put it on your new array...otherwise...you're stuck with a full reformat...

That's what I thought. Any ideas on the guide?

Also, I have no floppy drive but a zip drive, if I have to install nVidia drivers can I do it from a zip drive or flash drive?

He has a third drive he could use to ghost his OS off the raptor, but I always thought you could only ghost to the same type of drive, ie. another raptor.
