here is my system: i have P4 3.00Ghz onb gigabyte SINXP1394 board. ut has teh ITE GigaRIAD controler and SATA controller built in. I have disabled the SATA controller since i dont use it. I have a dvd burner and a cd burner hooked up to the 2 IDE channels on the board seperatly. I have the 2 seagate barracuda IV 80gig drives plugged into the IDE 3 and 4 channels which are the RAID spots.
now... is it possible to disable RAID and still use these channels? if so how? I tried setting up a RAID and was unhappy with performance, so i set it up as JBOD and now its even slower....
so is it possible to not use the raid controler and jsut the IDE channels? like get rid of the "press ctrl g to enter RAID setup" screen durring boot?
best bios error...."no keyboard detected.... press F1 to continue....."
