Freenas & Hardware RAID on ASUS mobo

I got this Mobo M4A78L-M+LE for hardware raid with Athlon x4 640. I want to use freenas for OS and 2*2B in RAID1.
Once 2*2Tb is connected and changed to RAID in bios, it stopped booting to freenas on IDE based CF card. If in bios change to IDE from BIOS, freenas works fine.
MoBo is on latest firmware 0704. Does this mean, I cannot setup hardware raid? :cry:

  1. FreeNAS doesn't have your RAID drivers yet.
    Try the latest 8 beta version.

    Thanks for the reply. Is there any opensource NAS os which I can use with above on-board raid controllers?
  3. Try Openfiler. I cannot say if it will work for sure.

  4. No luck with openfiler too.. Went with software RAID.
    Thanks for the help.
