i have a 80gb(master) and 120gb(slave) hard drives on my pc and i was wondering if i could formatt both drives and reinstall windows xp(home) to have both hd's to be recognised as one; as in, have no partition or master/slave config
Only if your motherboard supports RAID.
why do you want to change your current set up?your set up is ideal.
paulmotherboard supports raid and i have tried to do it but unsuccessfully.wonder if you could direct me to a website that runs through the process??007alturning pc into media center and was looking into set up for this.but b4 i do this i still need to see when i use as media center i can still run it at the same time as a pc
did you use the raid floppy to install it?
no raid floppy to install of of.nothing on hd floppy or in system bios
What motherboard do you have?
BTW with those drives you can set up either a RAID 0 array which will make a single 200 Gb drive but if either drives dies you loose everything.Or you can make RAID 1 but it'll only be 80 Gb as it can only be set up to the capacity of the smallest drive and then the other drive is used to mirror the first as a backup.
If I understand what you are trying to do, you need to establish if your RAID controller supports JBOD. See the links below:click hereclick here
JBOD = RAID 0The RAID levels array from 1 to 6, 10, 50 and 0+1RAID 0 is not a "true" RAID array as it have no fault tollerance. i.e if one disk dies you loose all your data.click here for the types
