Hi everyone,I want to set up raid(striping) on my system, but what's the proper procedure? I have done a mirror raid before but without success,my system is Athlon64 3400+ Abit KV8-MAX3 MBOARD 1GB RAM(Crucile)2xWestern Digital WD 740(74GB) RAPTOR Window XP Pro and I am running it on a single Maxtor ATA 133 now, please help me if anyone out there could?

As you have an Abit board (like me) I'll assume it has an onboard Highpoint controller, possibly HPT374 - click here for a very good guide. It actually describes a mirror array on an HPT370 chip, but the procedure is basically the same with a couple of different menu choices. The screenshots on this site are particularly useful. Post back if you need more detailed advice.

Thanks I'll look through it later, my system does support RAID,it has both intel & silicon raid chip

i think you are linking to a linux software raid setup, rather than windows hardware raid using motherboard raid controller.

but i could be wrong !

thanks a lot,my mobo has both intel raid controller for sata 1 & sata 2 while silicon controller for sata 3 to sata 6 and I found it a little bit confusing,and the menu does not say a lot about how to set up raid in detail,however I found your site is very clear,I will let you know how it is getting on later.

Your mobo sound more sophisticated (and complex) than mine, which is an older KG-7 Raid with just the HPT370 chip. Hopefully, the on-screen menu for your setup is not too different. Happy raiding!
