I have an Asus P5K-E with ICH9R southbridge and JMicron eSATA. It has 6 SATA ports (4+2slave) and I have it configured for RAID 0 on ports 4/5.
What I want to do is add a hot-swapping internal drive (with pull out bay) and run it under AHCI (which is required for hot-plug). Can I simply plug it into one of my SATA ports even though the chipsets configured for RAID and use that single drive under AHCI?
I would use the JMicron ports, but they are only external, and I want to use this as an internal drive.
