Change Mode

? for the raid pros

Recommended Posts

Running 2 120gb sata drives in raid0. I have it partitioned into 2 drives. (Don't ask why) I'm having a few windows issues, and debating a reformat. But I don't want to screw up the raid. Really don't feel like going through the LLF and rebuild the raid.


So, can I just format the C drive and reload W2K, without crashing the whole damn thing? :crash: Please say yes. :lol:

Thanks. I trust ya, but think I'll wait for a second opinion. Hope ya understand. :mrgreen:

Sure. There's nothing like confirmation from one of the vets. :geezer:


But one thing you can notice is that when you go into the Windows setup, your array is already recognized as one drive (before partitioning, of course.) I think that's evidence that Windows is independent of the array already built.

Yup, you'll need to put in the CD, reboot, load the F6 RAID drivers, get into where windows asks you if it is a new install or second, and say new, delete C drive and then make it again, this will make it raw and redy to format, you do not need to touch the second partition.


(Note: make sure your CD/DVD is made to be the boot before the RAID)
