Intel 320 + XPS 410 + two HDD's in RAID 0

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi ocs,

I have an old DELL 9200 / XPS 410 PC, which came with 2 HDDs (2x 250GB) running RAID 0.

I just bought an Intel 320, 120 GB SSD this morning. yey

In the BIOS I can set "RAID ON" which will enable AHCI. How can I configure my system such that the SSD is my boot drive and non-raid member, and the 2 other HDDs to be as extra storage, but still running in RAID 0? Or is this even worth the hassle?

SSD is connected to SATA0, 2 HDSs are connected to SATA 1 and 2 respectively. Using the "Intel RAID Option ROM Utility" on start-up, there is a step where I need to "Select Source Hard Drive", and in the manual it states the following:
NOTE: The source hard drive should be the hard drive containing the data or operating system files that you
want to keep on the RAID volume.
This part confuses me, since I don't want the SSD to be the part of RAID.

You could install windows onto the SSD and format the raid 0 drives and use them as fast storage
