    Hi.

    I have exactly the same problems as described here, and is currently running this setup;


    GA-EX58-UD5 (donít know which version)
    2 x WD VelociRaptor WD1500HLFS(Mirrored RAID, on Intel controller)
    Corsair Dominator, 3 x 2 GB (TR3X6G1600C8D)
    830 Watt RMS PSU
    EVGA GeForce GTX 260
    Windows 7 (Could it be a Windows 7 RAID-handling problem?)

    The system is set to standard (nothing is OCíed)

    The system ran perfectly for about 3 months, but has been shutdown every night, so donít know if it ever has been able to run for more than 24 hours.

    But now the system keeps crashing, and have noticed that it happens with lower intervals when streaming music like 'qwertylesh' wrote (about Ĺ-1 hours interval).
    Can confirm that nothing has been updated (Drivers, Firmware etc.) or changed since I purchased the system.
    <!--[if !supportLineBreakNewLine]-->
    <!--[endif]-->
    Took the drives out and ran the Western Digital Extended+Quick test, which didnít return any errors, but by a mistake I inserted only one drive and the system booted (without RAID-Array).
    Benchmarked the system and tried all the things that made the system crash before, but couldnít get it to crash again.

    Inserted the other drive, and made a software-emulation of mirrored RAID, with the 2 drives, which worked perfectly, without crashes.

    I think Iím going to buy an Adaptec RAID controller, if anyone can confirm that the GA-EX58-UD5 has some clear problems with the onboard Intel controller.

    I use it in RAID and have no issues, but I do think these guys were discussing the new RAID XHD Setting in the latest Beta BIOS

    Since you have not updated drivers I assume not the BIOS either? That could be why you may be having issues? Many fixes have been added, and they may address some things with your memory.

    I'd suggest you update your BIOS, but sounds like you want to do some more testing first maybe just to rule out that this was a random BSOD?

    I use raid as well and have had no issues whatsover with several OSs including Windows 7. The only time the ich10r southbridge might have some problems is if you raiding several very fast high-end ssd's, but if one is spending that kind cash they should already be investing in a premium controller. I'd try updating the bios as suggested as well as the drivers.

    Had problems with any OS, XP, Vista, W7.
    I have had the problem since BIOS F4.
    Im on F8 now and still cannot use an OS installed on raid without lockups after watching video or playing music for more then several hours.

    genec57, your sig doesn't match up with what the situation is for us.

    That is raid 0 stripe ... NOT AS AN OS DRIVE. You sig says that your intel ssd is your os. Not your geil ssd's.

    The intel controller seems to not have a problem with stripe sets ... aslong as its not an OS drive.

    If your sig is actually incorrect and your are running your OS off your geil drives I would be interested if you would post your intel matrix storage manager log file which shows all the versions of drivers and roms your currently running off that controller.

    I didn’t receive BSODs, the system simply halted.

    Updated to F7, and began getting a lot of BSODs, after some reboots Windows told me that there was an error in the MBR and it would fix it automatically....
    Haven’t been able to boot the system since, keeps getting "An Error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data.".

    And the Windows CD – Boot recovery doesn’t work.

    Will try a reinstall with the onboard controller (and an Adaptec Controller), will bet that the onboard controller fails and the Adaptec succeeds, Adaptec always succeeds :P

    Or at least gives me a decent error-message

    Ahh sounds like some incorrect settings have trashed your windows install. You will need to do a clean install, that's all you can do really as I do not think FixMBR works in vista

    I do suggest you go ahead and update your BIOS to the latest though instead of F7, latest is F9a
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/giga...st-bios-28441/

    With the update to F7 those BSOD codes 0x00000000 could be helpful, but it just sounds to me like you had settings wrong is all. I can help with settings for sure, so once you get going again and windows installed if you start having BSOD's try to catch the code and use the machine as little as possible until I can help you with settings. That way you don't have to reinstall all over again

    Thanks Lsdmeasap for the time you have spend on my Thread-hijaking :P

    Recovered the MBR manual, Updated to F9a, and are testing the system now.


    But got a couple of questions:

    What is XHD exactly? Compared to running RAID with XHD disabled?

    My MB sometimes runs the BIOS recovery-process because of a checksum error, is that normal? Or is it just because I used older bios?

    xhd IS raid! Its the same thing just a different wording/branding.

    You can't run raid with XHD disabled (except on the jmicron/gigabyte controller ports as XHD is an intel term afaik).
