Sorry for the questions, but im new on this.


I can use high point controller on ide only as a serial ata 133 on a 64 bits pci slot ?


If i decide to raid, i must formated all my drives, even the drive master?

thanks

Hmm, i think your question is just like the on i had...if you can use serial raid on normal ide hard drives...i think with the ide to serial adapters the answer is yes...but i am not 100% sure.

As for the second question...yes once you make a raid array your computer will recognize it as one...there for pretend you are formatting on big drive.:)

I ahve a mobo msi k7d master and only 2 slots ar free 64bits pci. I wonder if an serial ata high point 1520 works on those slots.


Thanks
