Help with RAID 0 setup. Spinpoint F3 x2

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Just set up a RAID 0 stripe as my main C drive.
Set up the stripe in the raid boot rom utility without a hitch, 128k block size, but had issues trying to load the raid driver while installing windows.

Gave me a message about using unsigned 64bit drivers, but after 3rd or 4th try, the drives finally showed up and let me install.

So after I install all my updates/programs/some games, I start to notice my system will stutter and hang for a random interval of time, from 10-30 seconds, where I can move my mouse, and attempt to open folders/programs etc... but they will not open, until after the freeze-up-stutter-whatever finishes doing what it's doing, is when all those programs will pop open.

Did I set it up wrong?

Update on status of RAID:

Windows boots up still, but a lot of my apps hang when trying to run them. ie, the hour glass appears and disappears, but a look into my task manager shows the process is there.

Switched back to AHCI and using my old 150gb raptor.

I read somewhere about issues with spinpoint F3 drives and SB850 chipsets. Anyone know anything about this?

Heh, that would have answered my question had you expanded Storage Controllers

Somethings telling me you have the wrong driver installed. But that is rare.

I've never owned an AMD board but I would update that storage controller.
Try Asus' downloads first, if that does nothing try updating your chipset from AMD.
