quick question on raid, - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Crysis lagging is most likely due to the graphics card. It's a tough game on any card.

As for loading windows....you're going to need to reformat and do a brand new install of windows when you do the Raid array.

as for the crysis, i didn't lag like this even with my older HD3650 and HD2600XT i even set my 2900XT to the same settings as these 2 does the samething, it's like graphic is smooth, only lag when I start running, perhaps osmething to do with ram i dunno, but that's beside the point, as ALL other games runs great. not too worry about crysis for now. cause i do currently having some ram issues also.

ok so that made it clear, here's what i need to do

1. Back up my stuff and get ready for the setup
2. set bios to raid 0 (or whatever I end up decide to use and that mobo supports)
3. pop windows disc in and start installation.
4. it will detect 2 drives still, so at this point install the raid driver
5. ready to format the one drive it appears after raid driver installed.
6. install windows and ready to enjoy it

above currect?

You don't enter the BIOS to set up the RAID. It's right after the BIOS screen. It'll ask you to press something like "Ctrl-I" or "Ctrl-M" to enter the RAID utility. You set it up from there.

After inserting the windows disc and installing there is going to be a part that says "Press F6 to install additional drivers" (or something like that). Once you install the drivers it will see the raid array as ONE hard disk volume and you format/install it from there.

FYI, if you DON'T press F6, Windows will most likely not see ANY Hard drives installed.
