Exclamation Asus P4C800-E Deluxe and Mandrake and Intel ICH5R and RAID 0 and 74 GB Raptors

Can't install Mandrake on my RAIDed 74 GB Raptors using Intel ICH5R RAID controller (RAID0), Mandrake states it's corrupted.


- Asus P4C800-E Deluxe
- 2 * 74GB Raptors (RAID 0) using Intel ICH5R RAID controller

Mandrake 10 + Edition Workstation states that my partition is corrupted. It views the drive as 2 separate drives, instead as 1 RAID'ed entity. Shows 1st drive with some partitions (created with PartitionTragic... woops, meant PartitionMagic 8.0.. for dual boot for Windows XP), but it doesn't recognized the created Linux partition or the WinXP NTFS partition.

I think it has to do with Mandrake not being able to recognize the Intel ICH5R RAID controller. I am unable to find any drivers for this controller for this motherboard using Linux, only Windowz drivers. Finding a driver, I believe, is the solution. :-P

Closest thing to a Linux drive I found was 'Adaptec* ICH5-R/S Serial ATA RAID Drivers' at Intel's site.
Unable to put the URL due to the 'must have 5 points' rule, or something like that thingy magigy :-P

I haven't tried this yet, but I think it's my next resort.

Perhaps I should've gone with the Promise RAID controller, right from the get go. :-P
