RAID 0 on a GA-K8V Ultra-939: VT8237R or SiL3512?

Discussion in 'Gigabyte' started by Pierre Cart-Grandjean, Oct 2, 2005.

  1. Hello,

    There seems to be two possibilities for SATA RAID 0 on the motherboard
    GA-K8V Ultra-939: I could use two SATA disks connected to the VT8237R
    (Called "OnChip Serial ATA" in the BIOS) or two disks connected to the
    SiI3512 (called "Onboard H/W Serial ATA" in the BIOS).

    So my first question is am I right so far?

    Then, where do I get the drivers to install Windows XP on the RAID. On the
    CD of the board there is a \BootDrv\menu utility with the possible options
    for RAID drivers: Intel IAA_RAID, SiIRAID, Promise 20276 RAID, Promise 20265
    RAID. I guess that SiIRAID is for the SiI3512. But I'm not sure about the
    VT8237R.

    Finally, if I have two possibilities, which one is the best?

    Thanks for any help,
    Pierre
