    Hello,

    I have an old MSI K7T266 Pro2 RU board, which includes a RAID controller.
    Currently it is set up with a stripe RAID array comprising of 2 X 40 GB hard
    discs as a single 80 GB array. I wish to replace this with a single 200 GB
    drive, and am wondering can the RAID controller on the board be used in this
    fashion - as a standard IDE controller, suitable for running a single IDE
    hard disc? Or would I need to use some unofficial BIOS on the RAID
    controller to convert it to a pair of standard IDE controllers? Currently
    the RAID array is nearly full with files, and thus I want to know for sure
    this will work before backing up the data, and erasing the RAID array.

    Thank you,

    Simon Howson
