I have 2 disks striped in a raid 0 array using linux kernel software raid. Common sense says that I want to set this to the Onchip options. Abit included the 2-digit diagnostic LEDs, which can be very useful for troubleshooting. This means that any Athlon 64 can be set to lower CPU multipliers and higher frequencies to get the most out of high-speed memory. I can’t comment on how raid 0 works with windows, but the manual that came with the motherboard had some instructions and a driver disk that you use early in the windows install process. I have an abit av8, and I’m using software raid under linux. Honestly, don’t get a raid card unless you have some kind of server whose files you just can’t ever lose, if it is for gaming, it’s just not worth it, unless you have bucks to burn.

Personally, I have an ide hard drive which has win2k and my linux boot partition on raod, and then a software raid setup for my linux root and home partitions. With a hardware raid controller, the OS whether windows or linux would just see one hard drive as the controller does all the work and the setup is achieved through the controller’s own bios.
I install gentoo on it with “hardware” raid that the card had, but when the promise card failed to work with gentoo and I removed the card, I noticed that on the drives raid-0 that I had setup, only wrote to one drive, leaving the other abt untouched, this is probably because gentoo didn’t like the card, but still, the card should have done what it was supposed to, but failed.
Check abit -usa forums, CBF looking for it. We like the edge connectors, but some case designs make it very difficult to connect the edge-connectors. Sun Jan 16, 7: Features xbit Layout Abit AV8: Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.
Well the short answer is yes, it will work. Abit uses flat edge connectors for IDE connections, which does a very good job of removing any interference from the bulky IDE cables. You’ll need to choose a username for the site, which only take a couple of moments here.
Mon Jan 17, 8: In due course, I would ideally like to add a single IDE drive using the onboard IDE-1 connector – but that can wait for now The problem is that the IDE Raid array comes up as Disk 0, which Arid believe will mean that the moment I create one or more partitions on it, the first Disk-0 partition will be the one that is used for booting.

You start by partitioning the raid drives individually into matching pairs of the same size partitions. We first tested uGuru in our review of the Abit KV8 Max3, and it continues to evolve as a very useful tool for the overclocker.

Carl, Oct 31, Log in Sbit have an account? And if so, is there any way of having the PC boot from Disk 1? PCI – Fixed, 6: All times are GMT. Left the bios setting to bootable add in cards, then faffed about with the settings for the raid card, which should show up during the post screens, after the mobo post screens.
Richard Hopkins, Oct 31, After that, you can post your question and our members will help you out. Common sense says that I want to set this to the Onchip options.
I see no reason why you couldn’t run xbit under both windows and linux on your machine if you set up your partitions correctly. In addition, the Athlon 64 FX chips are completely unlocked, so both higher and lower ratios can be selected.

Hafta go back to an earlier bios? Hosting by Gossamer Threads Inc. You could have rqid many “pairs” as you like, and hence have both windows and linux on the same machine. The reason they are expensive is because they contain their own special CPU and cache set, which shifts the load from the CPU to that card, leaving the CUP free for other things.
