Re: RAID 0 and restore image

I am wondering if size of the array - being larger than 3TB has anything to do with it?

Has anyone reading this used 2 x 2TB drives and it worked?

If that is the case, the Marvell controllers may not be a good option and data loss possible. I've not used anything larger than 1 TB drives.

You could then use 1 x 2TB for the Bios's recovery drive for the array and the other for general data back ups/storage.

I'm thinking about 2 x 1TB raid 0
and a 2TB hard drive for backup.

I will use something like synctoy or other app to keep backups and archives.

I've found this on the FAQ's page for your motherboard.

quote:
Q. Why can't I enable some RAID function?
A. Due to the limitation of PC structure, the capacity of shadow memory is fixed. If the shadow memory is not enough, some of the RAID controllers will be inactive.

What is NV-RAM? - Nonvolatile Read Write Memory, also called Flash memory. It is also know as shadow RAM.

I'm wondering if there's a setting or restriction there causing you problems?

The USB stick isn't in the port at bootup?
Is "plug n play O/S" disabled in bios or enabled?
Have you tried with 1 stick of RAM to start the process?

Not sure why that error is logged for your motherboard as a faq. Maybe an email to them regarding this?
