Track this discussion and email me when there are updates. I had another question.

RAID setup Asus P4C800-E deluxe

I notice that there is a newer version of the Promise fastTrak drivers on the Asus web site. RAID 0 will give you the best performance.

Oh well, shouldn’t matter much. The promise controller is basically on the PCI bus and has its data limits as well. Okay now your ready to create the array. PowerSlave Member Mar 7: I’m running Windows XP Pro. Hi, Yes the hdd’s do “match”. On the Abit the intel sata ports are listed as onchip ide controllers and the sata ports are listed as onboard.

The Deuxe chipset hdd’s bootup fine as Drive C: Yoda to Keizer Member Mar The intel raid is Independent asua the sata raid ,so in other words you can run those ports how you want.


If it was up to me I probably wouldn’t update them because I beleive in the saying “Don’t fix it if it ain’t broke”. There are no Intel rair there because they havn’t been installed.

Create a new discussion If you’re asking for technical help, please be sure to include all your system info, including operating system, p4c800e number, and any other specifics related to the problem. Once that was done then the BIOS and windows would “see” the new hdd’s easily. Once you create the array, you’ll reboot.

Its like one is for using during the F6 operation during the OS install, and the other you would install after Windows is installed. However- having said that- all the info about delkxe chipsets and RAID is in the manual.

Okay now reboot and you should get a little utility that comes up asking to create your array.

ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe – motherboard – ATX – Socket 478 – i875P Series

I disconected the system disks, connected both new disks to the Intel connectors and booted drluxe. I don’t get this prompt. RAID arrays are best used for the storage of critical data files.


I have read yes and no. I am a bit confused. I’ve had my fill of emailing them and waiting two months for a reply, so I haven’t asked yet.

Before you do anything here and if you’re going to reinstall XP then you should create a floppy disk with the drivers for the Promise RAID controller built in on the mobo. I am just curious which of the two to use during the install of the OS?? Any suggestion would be much appreciated. I can’t live without my ghost images! Okay now once you’ve created the array, should format it.
