    Default GA-EP45-UD3P Server 2008 Raid Drivers?

    Does the GA-EP45-UD3P have RAID driver support for Windows Server 2008? I'm looking at buying this MB for a lot of the features it has, including 8 SATA 3Gb/s ports, but I want to put Server 08 on it with RAID as a test bed\learning machine. Any help would be appreciated including other recommendations of motherboards if I couldn't get raid working on this particular one.

    Thanks!

    Loaded Server 2008 Enterprise on a RAID1 using the GSATA ports. used the drivers that came with the board... had no problems

    Server 08 is Vista, so yes. And I would suggest you use the Intel (Yellow) ICH10R drivers for a OS RAID

    I used the GSATA for the OS RAID1 and am using the ICH10R for RAID5 (data)
    Seems to make the most sense with the layout of this board....

    do you have a reason for suggestion?

    Thanks

    Yes, I suggest the OS in the Intel controller because it is much faster.

    You may not be able to use the GA Controller for your RAID 5 though depending on how many disks you have so I do see why you choose what you did
