4pca3+ serial raid and raid at the same time
 
hi all,

I am new to this forum and using raid.
I have few questions want to ask.

After I enable SATA raid mode in bios, I found that the normal "CTRL-H" screen disappeared. Then, how could I enter highpoint bios to configure the highpoint IDE?

In addition, what would happen if I load a ghost image of WINXP which have previously installed on a normal IDE harddisk into a highpoint non-raid harddisk. Could it boot up successfully?

THX ALL

Depends on the BIOS, but a lot of times you can't have two different kinds of RAID running at the same time.

As long as you have the drivers for the Highpoint loaded on the OS when you do the image, you should be able to boot from the drive.

thanks for your help gizmo.

May be highpoint raid would not be possible in this case for my pc. However, could those IDE devices that are being connected to highpoint be detected by the OS?

Yes, as long as they are connected to a regular IDE channel, and as long as they were all run as standalone drives, or in a RAID 1 (drive mirror).

I will have a try.

Actually I should have had a try before asking, HAHA.

Depends on how adventurous you are. :evil:
