    Oops, I didn't see your last post while I was writing my post.

    Unfortunately the ICH9R does not allow/support this. Only Raid 0 (Striping Mode), Raid 1 and Raid 5 are possible. Too bad, so i can`t create a 13TB Disk.

    Nevertheless.

    I guess your problem is different. You want to create a RAID0 with TRIM? If you don`t use a modded Option Rom this will not work.
    I`m going to mod another bios (for P35-DS4) for you with modded Intel Option Rom.

    I will edit this post later


    EDIT:

    BIOS contains:
    Intel Raid ROM v11.6.0.1702 (modded / with RAID0 TRIM)
    Intel AHCI ROM v1.20E (untouched)
    Gigabyte/JMicron ROM v.1.07.06 (modded)
    Boot-Logo deleted (replaced by only white background) (Space needed for Gigabyte Option ROM)

    I can't wait to see the performance enhancements with the FILLFAKx.bin enhancements.

    I always boot with the boot logo disabled so the all white option to provide needed space in the bios is fine by me.

    When I was modding my EP45-UD3P bios I got all tripped up with the incorrect raid component CRC value when I tried to change the raid component's name.

    Life is certainly a whole lot easier when you know what you're doing.

    Thanks for hint man @profJim !

    And another modded BIOS for Gigabyte P35-DS4. No Beep on Boot.
    That`s the one I`m using now.

    * Gigabyte/JMicron ROM v1.07.28
    * Realtek GBe ROM v2.09(071017) (untouched)
    * BIOS Logo (shrinked to 320*240 16bit bmp, so dont`t wonder if you make an CMOS Default...)
    * Different file sizes filled with Fakefiles (MEMINIT.BIN and PPMINIT.ROM stay at original offset)
    * Proof:

    PS:
    Replacing LAN ROM is followed by a bios beeping once on start.
    Do i need a LAN ROM at all? I don`t kneed PXE.

    Default Re: GA-P35-DS4 not handing 3TB Drives

    Do i need a LAN ROM at all? I don`t kneed PXE.
    I don't know if deleting the rtegrom.lom component would cause any problems.
    What would happen if you accidentally enabled the LAN options when you load optimized bios defaults?
    Would your system reboot? I don't even want to try to guess.

    You're welcome, glad that I could help out.

    Question Re: GA-P35-DS4 not handing 3TB Drives

    Is there a reason why you didn't use the 8086-2822_v11201527_mod-for-TRIM-in-RAID0 option rom?

    A binary file comparison using the no-Trim-support version and the Trim-in-raid0 version shows that there are only two pairs of bytes that are different.

    The uncompressed size is 121,856 bytes.

    I hope to have my P35-DS4 reassembled in 10 days or less.

    Default Re: GA-P35-DS4 not handing 3TB Drives

    Well, as my ssd is placed on gigabyte/jmicron sata (poor performance at all) I just do not need TRIM on my Intel RAID. My RAID consist of classical magnetical HDDs...

    Nevertheless, these are BIOS files modded by me:
    P35DS4.15c.1120.10706.120E.209.zip
    P35DS4.15c.1120.10728.120E.209.zip

    Thanks, I'll test out the mod-trim bios version with a Samsung 830 raid 0 setup next week after I reassemble my P35-DS4 Q9650 system.
