Mumbodog , Nov 18, Can I do this without re-installing the OS? These drives are connected to the black sata connectors, not the blue. So I reinstalled the floppy drive, started, and nothing. Join the community here.

These drives are connected to the black sata connectors, not the blue. I’m usually quite good with this sort of thing but I’m quite stumped. Yeah, the Intel site is so huge and hard to navigate, they make it so hard to find information on one product in one place. Welcome to Tech Support Guy! The only real problems I forsee are: You can’t store the rai on a partition you’re going to delete and then recover the image and you can’t store the image on the same partition you’re backingup.

For some reason when my computer was built they connected my drives to the Silicon Image ports in a RAID0 configuration using a d97x5bx instead of the intel hardware option.

Can I take a backup of my drive now, make the switch, setup the RAID0 partions which wipes the drivesand then recover the backup?

Need help with SATA ports in Intel D975XBX

You don’t have JavaScript enabled. I have a PC with the intel dxbx board and four 2TB sata drives in it.

I would pop out the floppy and reboot and get nothing. Doing this produced some very interesting results though. Log in or Sign up. Thanks to both of you for the help. If you’re not already familiar with forums, watch our Welcome Guide to get started.
