i tried everything what i could


i checked hdds with software from samsung ok

reset bios ok

newest drivers from dfi & nvidia


i am hopeless becouse the problem is in drivers i think

i bought this mobo and hoped everything will be ok but it's not

maybe there is someone with same mobo and doesn'have problems

I'm using the same motherboard and the exact same samsung SP0812C drives in a 2 disk raid0 setup. No problems here at all. I'm using SATA ports 3 & 4 nearest the agp slot though, as they're the internal nforce3 sata ports. You might want to try plugging your drives into those ports.


I've using the latest nforce3 driver set, 5.10, for the raid driver. The later 6.x ones for nf4 do work too, but they're a bit slower for the raid. Using diskspeed32 i get an average read speed of 110MB/s, i'm using a 32k stripe size.


I haven't tried using ports 1&2, so maybe that's where your problem is. I'd suggest trying ports 3&4 and installing the nforce 5.10 drivers.


If you still have problems aftert that, you may want to try running the drives individually, one at a time, to check neither drive is faulty. Also try with different sata cables.


hope you get it working, because believe me, a pair of SP0812C in raid0 are really very fast. :)

well the problem is when i want to install windows and when files are coppied to hdd

windows restarts and shows blue screen


i used 3&4 ports and the same problem


how are you installing drivers ?

i wanted to use nlite to integrate drivers on cd but it shows blue screen

did you update your sata raid floppy by downloading newest drivers from dfi and installing them on floppy ?


now i have a problem with installation of wiindows


thanks for reply i thought that i am doomed at least i know that someone doesnt have problems


please send me all the drivers on mail [email protected]
