Thank you all for reading this ... I have a GA-K8NF-9 that had been working beautify for over a year.
Last weekend I upgraded the Bios because I was installing an Opteron 165 to replace my Athlon 64 3000+ and I wanted the system to recognize it properly.
Since I upgraded the system has been breaking up my Raid 1 (Mirrored) arrays. It takes the pair and comes up with 2 "pairs" each of which comes up as degraded because it only has one drive. Each time I have deleted the non boot array and then used that drive to rebuild the origonal array.
Each time the array has rebuilt itself succesfully and then after running stably for a few hours to 1.5 days it has broken up again, sometimes crashing the system.
This has now happened at least 6 times including twice today. How can I fix this?
I am using Bios version F11 and I have 4 Hitachi 250 GB SATA drives (currently only using 2 I have disconnected the data array to protect it until I can get this stable).
I also have a ATi x600 All-in-Wonder card and OCZ Memory 1024 MB
I have tried reinstalling windows (serveral times) and wiping and formatting the array that is still connected. I tried deleting and re-creating the array and clearing it. I have no idea what else to try.
I thank all of you in advance for any help you can offer, sorry this post got so long.
