RAID PROBLEM on NF4 - EPOX 9NPA+

Postby liqnit » Sat Apr 07, 2007 11:32 am

HI
I have the board for the last year and upto now i was using 2*80GB IDE drives.
I have just connected 2 250GB SATA 2 drives and wanted to work in RAID.

The problems:
1) The RAID BIOS (F10) is not showing unless i enable RAID on the IDE drives. (i have enabled IDE RAID ROM in the BIOS).
2) When i managed to config the RAID (STRIPING) i installed windows on the RAID and after installation finished the system start booting nonstop.
3) I cannot boot into the Current (IDE) windows when raid on SATA is enabled.

In Short my setup:

IDE 1 : MASTER 80GB HD
SLAVE 80GB HD
IDE 2 : MASTER DVD-RW
SLAVE NONE

SATA 1 - NONE
SATA 2 - NONE
SATA 3 - SATA 250GB
SATA 4 - SATA 250GB

RAID BIOS ENABLED

RAID enabled on SATA 3&4

Please advise.
