So i installed 7 and tested my raid which I guess really isnt and its sluggish and no where near what it should be. What settings in bios need to be set so that when i hit control F the raid configerator comes up first to enable raid 0. Here is a image of my hd tune benchmark and it shows terrible results. Thanks for any help.
First: in bios 'Disable/CPU Features/C1E
. If you disable C&Q
, you'll get another 5-10% performance boost.
If Raid is enabled, it should come up automatically at boot. Look in bios Drive Booster Manager. Are you getting nothing?
To give you a sense where you should be: on a single Velociraptor in AHCI I get 100 avg transfer, 6.9 access and 179 burst. Your figures should be substantially higher.Edited by yrag - 8/16/09 at 7:05pm
