Thunder K8WE (S2895) SATA RAID Hell

Discussion in 'Tyan' started by Francesco Chu, Jul 29, 2005.

  1. Anyone got the NVRaid to work as a boot device at all? I have updated
    the bios, tried slipstreaming drivers and still end up with 2 drives
    when the machine boots up in Windoze 2003 after install. Then of course
    it corrupts and I have to start again. This has happened 8 times
    already and I am up for suggestions.

    At initial install screen, it sees only 1 drive (I slipstreamed the
    nvraid driver into a new install cd), everything is fine til it boots
    up for the first time after install, then it finds 2 generic
    volumes...and raid is no more... BTW, it's set as Raid 1.

    try and see the guys at
    I use scsi so I can't advise you based on my own setup.
    Why are you wanting to make a dual 300GB drive setup as your boot disk ? I
    am sure you have a good reason, I just would like to know, thanks

  3. Mirroring for redunduncy. Not my idea of fun, but I got it to work by
    slipstreaming the nv raid drivers for both sata and pata (yes, both)
    and then it works...bizzare. now I have to figure out network bridging.
