I'm trying to set up RAID 1. My mobo, the K8V SE Deluxe, appears to have an\nIDE/PATA RAID controller on board. It also appears that there are one or two\nSATA RAID controllers. Anyway, all I want to do is set up RAID 1 with my two\nMaxtor IDE/PATA drives. Is that possible? The wording in the mobo manual\nmakes me wonder. It says,\n\n\n\nquote:\n\n-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\nThese connection options are available for creating a RAID 0 or RAID 1\narray: a. connect two Parallel ATA HDDs to primary RAID connector and one\nSerial ATA HDD to either one of the two serial ATA connectors\n-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\n\n\n\n\nWhy does it say *and* a serial ATA HDD? Does this mean it doesn't support\njust PATA RAID?\n\nI connected my two drives to the onboard IDE RAID controller. When I got to\nthe part where I'm supposed to pick a source drive, it only gave me two\noptions: choice one was the slave drive attached to the IDE RAID controller,\nchoice two was an SATA drive. Neither choice makes sense since I don't have\nan SATA drive installed and since I want my source drive to be the OS drive,\nwhich is the master drive that's connected to the IDE RAID controller.\n\nAny ideas on what to do? I'm really flummoxed.
