What kind of raid are you looking to go with? raid0 raid5?
what is the ending number on that P4P800? because I have 2 different boards with that model number and neither one has hardware raid.
So I need to reformat my computer, BADLY, I normally would do it once a month but finally got a second hard drive and need to set up raid, and because I dont really want to go down that adventure I have put it off for like 6 months lol. But the time has come, school starts like tuesday I think and so need to get it done.
My question is this, anyone have any info on setting up RAID on a P4P800 mobo? I found some potential drivers but other than that couldnt find any posts or difinitive information, and the manual was pretty worthless as well. While I have my laptop I just dont want to embark down this path basically without some info or a plan lol.
I did setup RAID on a friends computer once but it was detailed instructions and included drivers lol. And they have a floppy disk which made it easier lol =P I actually should check maybe my CD does have drivers but I 99% dont think it does. So, any info?
If it matters two IDE 7200 RPM 120gb HDDs, one maxtor one WD. When I did search that the general concenus was optimally you dont want to RAID two HDDs that arent exactly the same, but it seems it works and since this is mostly a gaming/media machine it is hardly devestating if I get a crash and have to reformat. Everything of importance is handeled on other PCs.
