A7N8X-E deluxe motherboard - disabling RAID

I have recently changed my motherboard from A7V8X-X to A7N8X-E deluxe. The problem is that while booting Linux the devices


are trying to get detected and takes a long time to boot. Also the NVIDIA chipset reports that it is not 100% native mode.

I will try to report the error messages in another post, because I am unable to copy and paste the boot-up messages here.

Is this problem due to SATA Raid that this motherboard has? How do I disable RAID in Linux?

To disable RAID on the A7N8X-E Deluxe there's a jumper on the motherboard you have to physically change. There should be a sticker that came with the mother board that shows where each jumper and what each position means. Just change the correct jumper (SATA_EN1) from the its default (Enabled) to Disabled. Not sure exactly how to point it on the motherboard but on the sticker its the bottom center jumper diagram.

Hope this helps.

Thanks a lot.

I added the kernel boot options
hde=none hdg=none
to the grub.conf file and now the system boots without trying to detect the devices.

I will try and disable the RAID in the motherboard.
