Thread: Pre-existing RAID-0 Stripe with new Mobo

    my Gigabyte GA-7VAXP died, and I just got my new GA-7NNXP... I already had a RAID-0 Stripe with 2 80gigs with the old mobo, now I've hooked them up to the IDE RAID channels on the new mobo, and its not seeing the Stripe. Do I have to Rebuild the array? Will this erase all the data, or will it just sort of recognize that one already exists?
    Is there a way to get the existing Array back with all the data intact? not sure what option I should choose in the RAID Setup, as I *really* can't afford to lose the data on these drives
    thanks

    Realized after that Rebuild should only apply to a Mirror, so that left me with very few other options, and I think I got it working... did Define RAID, selected my two drives, and it says its Functional now.. however, I can't check, because WinXP is rebooting due to the motherboard/chipset change... so now I get to try a repair/reinstall of that... fun

    Why'd you go back to another Gigabyte board???

    the only two choices I had for an nForce2 u400 mobo with ATA-RAID were the Gigabyte 7NNXP and the DFI LanParty NFII Ultra... the DFI was about $30CDN cheaper, but the Gigabyte got top ratings from everywhere (including Toms', anand, and even the TweakTown Editors Choice award)... its also the only board to offer both ATA-RAID *and* S-ATA RAID
    also, seeing as it was the Voltage Regulator that blew on my old board, the 6-phase (2x3 phase) Regulators on the 7NNXP are very nice, especially seeing as either of the 2 3-phase components can fail, and the other will continue working.. makes me feel a bit better :)
