RAID

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello!

First of all: I currently have a ASUS Commando Socket 775 motherboard, with an onboard raid controller.

However, that onboard raid controller is not functioning as it should. It is a fresh reinstall (1 day old) of both HDDs, combined in Raid0, and it is already complaining like the photo shows:



EDIT: The picture is from google! But it's the same "Error occured" message I receive when I boot.
Also, I am using 2 x 300GB 10k RPM Western Digital VelociRaptors

I'm not educated enough to know if an firmware update or anything else, could make my onboard raid controller function as it should.

I tried looking for an external raid controller, but they don't seem to be cheap.

So my problem is, I want to use the gift from God in form of Raid0, but my onboard controller won't make it work properly, since I have problems booting and so on.

Do you have a solution for a cheap used/new external raid controller? (If I go too cheap, will the Raid0 speed ever be so bad, that I would be better of just using my two drives seperatly?)

Additional information:
I live in Denmark, europe. Specific hardware names, software/firmware solutions, any info is much appreciated!

Use software raid. Windows will do it under Disk Management. There is 0 difference in speed. CPUs these days dont exhibit any sort of overhead previously incurred by this.
