Right on yeah I'm on IDE mode on accident I always line the OS up on RAID but this time I forgot with AMD Nvidia Shield RAID.
There's a notable difference in the way the acoustics of the drive and general performance from IDE to RAID. The IDE mode makes the drive sound "Older" just cranking away ya know typical old HDD reading writing sound... It lags out on multi-tasking... The IDE mode has issues read/ writing/ copying all at once to a single drive, though RAID has no issue taking on way more I/O tasks at any given time and gets the jobs done 10x faster.
Right now it's on IDE mode and I hooked up 2x 256MB/s 16GB SSD's and Software-Striped them in Windows. Only on SATA 1.5Gbps (128MB/s per 1Gb / 1.5Gbps = 192MB/s each port) so I'm getting 384MB/s over the SSD's for pagefile which made a huge difference when over physical ram. When taxing an 8GB ram system to well over 12GB is when the Striped 16GB SSD's shine in performance.
Batman Arkham Knight 3840x2160 maxed out on RX 480 8GB and AMD Opteron 1389/ 8GB system ram.
...... So you say install the raid drivers then do the backup and restore? Then mark volume active I suppose? Its been forever... Intel RAID was easier I think just pop the Iastor.sys in the system32 and what not haha .... Would the Volume change in the BCDEdit? That's where I'm thinking the issues will arise.. trying to boot to the wrong volume etc etc... Need to diskpart determine volume letters and mark the system reserved partition as active when gone RAID after backup and restore data...
I'm familiar with this just the whole bcdedit part so yeah... Any more advice would be helpfulEdited by chris89 - 4/16/17 at 7:11am
