RAID 0 loses array

By bmrdcs ·
I've been having trouble keeping my RAID 0 array working. Seems to "lose" the array settings, I have to re-enter (I've been using "auto"), which means I lose my O/S. Luckily, I have a "cloned" spare simgle drive! Running a SIL 680 controller w/ 2- 40GB Maxtor 7200/ATA-133 HDD's on a nVidia nForce2 board. I've tried both CS & master settings on the HDD's. What's Wrong?

First: check the firmware and drivers on the controller card - and update to the latest version. 9/10 times this will fix that problem.

If not - you probably will have to return the controller as it looks like it has a problem with the eeprom chip that holds it's settings.

Helped, but not as much as a "pointer" from a local network guy & still took a lot of troubleshooting. IF YOU'RE HAVING TROUBLE W/ A SiI 689 card: Check the flash BIOS chip (AMD). If it's dated 19**, that's your problem! Go to the SiI website & download Updflash & the r680 binary code. Then follow the link & download freedos & follow the instr. OR: email me & I'll send a copy of my floppy!
