RAID config causing BSOD's?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I posted this in the Windows section as well because I'm not really sure which section this is better suited for and who can help me better (please don't flame).

I use an XP Pro machine as a home server. It has a DFI Blood Iron motherboard with 4 WD 500GB HD's set in RAID10 and then an 80GB WD as the OS. Ever since I implemented the RAID10 (I reinstalled Windows when I did it) my computer Blue Screens every day at least once or twice. I get the following error:

KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR

STOP: 0x0000007a

ACPI.sys


Now I've tested my 80GB HD 3 times (3 different DFT's including WD Lifeguard) and I've run Memtest for 12+ hours with no errors. Could this be an issue with my RAID? My 4 HD's in RAID are on Sata ports 1-4 (since those are the only ones that can raid) and my OS HD is on on Sata port 5. I'd really like to get this fixed ASAP cuz I use this server everyday.

The more I read up on this issue the more I'm thinking it's an issue with my RAID controller. What I don't get is that my windows HD is not in RAID. I have 4 HD's in RAID10 that are in IDE configuration in the BIOS and my other HD (C:/Windows HD) is not in RAID. This was the first time I used RAID on this motherboard. I guess I should try updating the drivers but I'm pretty sure they are the newest.

Anyone know anything about this Intel Matrix RAID Utility?

Well now after restarting my computer after the latest BSOD, I'm getting a non-system disc error as if my HD is not there or has nothing on it. This just after running chkdsk and finding out after it was done that it ran chkdsk on my 1TB RAID setup instead of my OS HD. I'm so lost here. I would think my HD is bad but I've checked it multiple times and it always comes up as error free.

Could I have something configured in the BIOS incorrectly? This is my first time really using RAID.
