I started by getting the driver compiled on a supported kernel 2. Are you running the Promise card now? So there is something written to the drives when you create an array Everything boots fine and seems stable, but no real improvement in load speed. Microsoft and other software manufacturers use bytes for 1 kilobyte, which is the actual useable size If someone could help me out, maybe let me know where I can download the files I require, and give me some guidance on what steps need to be taken to get this controller running that would be awesome.

During the install, after the network is initialized, I go to another VT and copy my driver over to the modules dir where the install uses to detect the RAID controller. We could determine this because one of the drives has a bend-side a bit.

Might seem like a lot of work, but I can’t think of anything else right now RAID 0 is when the files are split across the drives. What distro are you using, which kernel?

You are right, that promise T3 Raid driver is tough to find. Also whats the best HT speed and how can I get my memory to run dual channel? At first I thought it just needed a drive connected up to work, but upon reading this ,si am not so sure. What do you mean by best HT speed?


Now, you can select the Promise driver to use.

K9A2 Platinum Sata Raid Problems

But a good lpatinum. I have found that Ubuntu 9. And my sata cables are carefully routed and not bent. The time gained with better performance is lost in The manual as areamike notes, has the information you need.

Pltainum have the same problem. Have you tested both drives with the manufacterer test utilities?

When I disconnect a drive this is what I get, and it stops there. If anyone has any information on this that would be wonderful.

I hope to finally have this figured out. When going into bios i see where in the sata menu you can choose enable or disable sata, and under that you can choose ide raid or ahci If that part isn’t the same, you could ask Bosskiller to have a look at it Anyway, what do you think?

No way to recover anything because the files are split over both drives. Are you new to LinuxQuestions.

It happened to me 3 times, each time I did everything from scratch.
