Recommended sata connections

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I need some help here on installing my new hitachi (sata) and plextor (sata) dvd over the existing SI3112A raid controller.


Currently my setup:


2 x 36GB Raptor on raid 0 at sata 1 and sata 2 port in SI3112A controller. (On SI3112A because it is better performance than S3114)


I have tried to install plextor dvd on the sata 3 and hitachi on sata 4 but it seems like I can't configure sata 1 and 2 on raid where sata 3 and 4 on normal sata. I also have this problem of booting from CD-ROM drive whenever I want to boot from CD like installing Win XP etc.


Bios setting:

Onboard raid = Enabled

Raid Channels = Both


Even I can boot and win xp detected successfully when I set this way, on the bootup it always try to pair up sata 3 and sata 4 as a raid with some warning notice like Invalid devide or Rom etc.


Anyone can help? :confused:
