Default Re: Dual Booting With Linux in Raid


I appreciate your response, and it would probably help me quite a bit, except that since I last posted, I had some more mobo problems, and removed it and took it back to the store. I now have another Gigabyte mobo of a different model on order (GA-K8NS Ultra-939. It has a number of differences from the previous board, ranging from a faster chipset, more SATA connections, dual BIOS, and raid controller. Instead of the Nvidia raid, it has a Silicon Image 3512 raid controller. I do not yet know if this is a softward or hardware controller, but I'm hoping the latter. I'm not sure if the Gigaraid is still available or not. I don't know if this will work with Linux, but it couldn't be any worse than what I had. If it doesn't work this time, I will probably get a hardware controller, as you suggestecd.
