Sorry, im a totally noob with this raid stuff.
I've recently purchased a raid ide controller with the silicon image chipset. My question is, how do I boot up my HDD with it because I want to make way for my upcomin Liteon LDW-851s.
PM: Seagate 120gb HDD
PS: Maxtor 120gb HDD
SM: Pioneer Dvr-107D
SS: NEC ND-2500A
I simply pulled my primary ide cable out of the motherboard and put it in the primary channel of the raid card. Now I try to boot with an empty Primary ide channel, but cant find the HDDs in the bootup selection. It boots straight up to the Raid card bios. After configuring, it happens to stop at a screen sayin something about rebooting.
Is it easier to just install my optical drive in the raid card?
