is an A8R-MVP able to raid sata2 ?

i got trouble

configuring a raid array with an A8R-MVP

i set my array with the raid configuration tool
( raid is enabled in the bios )

i use 2 sata2 seagate disk.

when the system reboots, no array is set.

i've seen many users having trouble with A8R-MVP
... but ONLY with sata2
i wanna know if someone has a sata 2 raid working with this board

  1. I have that board but boot XP from a RAID0 using 2 - 74gig Raptors
  2. 2 raptors are sata 1

    i still ask

    does anyone have it with a sata 2 raid 0 ( sata 3.0gb ) 300mb / sec.

    do you see i'm asking if it's performing ?

    it have been IMPOSSIBLE TO SET THE RAID.

    nothing more i'm asking if someone has this WORKING ... while in raid 0
    on sata3 disks

    so... to clear out the point, 3 experienced tech tried to make it work, i'm wondering if the board is defective or simply not supposed to do it even if asus website tells me it can, i have some doubt, it works with sata1 drives
