Problem With Foxconn RAID Setup

In the cause of helping others I will tell you about two stupid things I did during this build. You don't want to or should you change the DRAM voltage to +.30 Volts as I had to do with the older OCZ Platinum DDR2 800 RAM. scottishbadboy1 78 058 kuvamist 6:02 What happens when you RAID 24 SSD Hard Disks !!!!! - Kestus: 4:13. I got some of the OCZ DDR2 800 compatibility information from the Bleedinedge Forum - OCZ DDR2 800 Motherboard Compatibility List. http://stricklandresearch.net/problem-with/problem-with-cmd-exe.html

The hard drive failure could have been a disaster, but thanks to my RAID and backup strategy, it was relatively painless to get everything back to normal again. I also tried changing the RAID settings to IDE, and although it worked thereby allowing me to install my OS, it was at the cost of significant performance loss. Not being much of an overclocker, I am happy enough that the memory shows 800 MHz, though I wonder what the timings really are if I cannot set them manually. I have found that while writing to a file on a mirrored volume in Vista and a system failure or reboot occurs, the RAID volume may be in a 'Verify' state.

jet757fOct 17, 2007, 1:58 AM Well I have a RAID 1 setup in a Dell Gen 3 that I bought 3 years ago. One stick of memory went bad and was replaced with my cost being only the shipping and time waiting for the replacement.

  • It went so well in fact that I am still somewhat surprised by the whole experience and wondering 'what did I miss?' There is no skimping on the accessories either.
  • A picture is better than my ramblings: Download Core 2 Duo Motherboard Comparison Matrix I colored the cells according to their fit to my requirements, green - acceptable, yellow - not
  • The new RAM has the same timings and speed, but the results when I plugged them in was certainly not the same.
  • Interestingly, all three settings are very stable in Windows.

I discovered only that in BIOS of this MOBO you can set SATA to either IDE or RAID or AH... Stay logged in Sign up now! This is not intended as an insult. Learn more You're viewing YouTube in Estonian.

The other two options available to choose from this menu are, "4P(IDE)+2S(RAID)" and "4P(IDE)+2S(AHCI)". I have looked in Computer Management but there is no sign of any of the three drives there. I ordered the Foxconn from eWiz. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/276051-30-foxconn-p4m8907ma-krs2h-raid New to RAID.

I had been running Windows without the Storage Manager and without any problems for several months. So why would I want to install it? You need to download the BIOS file and DOS flash utility manually then flash the primary BIOS under DOS environment. It took a while for me to figure out how to 'fix' the arrays.

Extreme overclockers may be disappointed based on some of the comments I have read on the internet forums, but I have tried to do only limited overclocking myself since I am http://www.techist.com/forums/f77/foxconn-a7da-s-raid-problem-185207/ Urgent! I just needed to reinstall the graphics card drivers, which I forgot to do after I reinstalled the OS. I HAVE NEVER HAD TO GO THROUGH THOSE UTILITIES TO GET TO BIOS!

Er, what I really mean is: I'm so damn cheap, that I'm thinking of upgrading my LAPTOP's HDD, then using the replaced 160GB drive in my older eMachines DESKTOP by replacing The first problem I had was installing the silly pushpin design on the Intel fan / heat sink combination. If you really want to setup a Raid1, you should probably buy an inexpensive Raid controller like this one (assuming that you can only use a PCI controller): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816318002&cm_re=raid_controller-_-16-318-002-_-Product I would this content In Vista, when it finally did start, the Aero interface was missing.

The drivers can be alternatively installed from a floppy, CD, DVD Flash or other recognizable drive. Hmmmmm. The pushpin is really a push-pull-pin design.

See View The Foxconn 975X7AB-8EKRS2H Build Page for pictures of the motherboard.

If you have installed a motherboard before or really know your way around the BIOS and are using new components, you shouldn't have many problems. lol (wow, this turned out kinda long 'eh?)

It sounds a little bit like a jet engine starting up. And if there are supposedly two controllers, how would I hook up drives to use the one and not the other ?Certainly I can spend time experimenting with it but I This table outlines the highlights of RAID: RAID Type Drives Needed (min) Strategy Advantages Disadvantages Implementation 0 2 Speed, Maximize Storage Space Allows data to be stored and accessed or striped have a peek at these guys For Vista: Install in XP while online or set the DVD drive as the first boot device and boot from the DVD.

The first POST does not show the POST screen. No, create an account now. I could not do the same with the Southbridge. Sometimes I give much more information up front than is needed and that can complicate things.

Now if I had to install one I would need to do research and get some help before I did the installation but I could eventually figure it out. I try restarting, same thing. Absolutely horrendous!

Also, if the motherboard were to die, I would have to find another motherboard with the same ICH7R Southbridge chipset in order to access the data on my RAID volumes/drives. This problem can be corrected by either using a floppy disk or by slipstreaming the appropriate drivers into the Windows XP installation CD, or by turning on IDE emulation in the Dont know if I really need it but like having it just in case.

I accidentally changed to Raid in Gigabyte EZ set up with 1 ssd How do I set up a RAID 1 array? Domthe:chef: Feb 11, 2009 #9 (You must log in or sign up to reply here.)

With two drives, that risk increases nearly times two. Extreme overclockers will probably be disappointed with the BIOS settings; there is no multiplier control. For my 158 GB RAID 1 array, the rebuild process takes a full hour to complete. The yellow and green PCIe slots, USB headers and IEEE 1394 header really stand out!

Any thoughts?Cheers, Peter. This system is quiet. If you're new to Tech Support Guy, we highly recommend that you visit our Guide for New Members. I unplug the DVD drive all together - no change.
