Question Can I use Promise controller for non-boot RAID?


Hello,

I have an Asus A7V333 mobo with integrated Promise PDC 20276 IDE RAID controller. Currently I have this controller disabled using the jumper setting.

I would like to enable it, but I want to continue booting off the regular non-RAID drive on the first IDE channel. It seems that once I enable the RAID controller, the system always wants to boot from it. Is there any way to enable it but not boot from it?

Thanks.

Afshin

One more thing:

Assuming it's possible to configure it the way I described abobe, would you recommend using LVM on it or not?

shouldn't the boot device be a BIOS setting?

Check the boot order in the BIOS

EDIT: Beaten to it!

I have been looking for that setting, because I've seen this answer in some other posts, but I cannot do.

I have a MSI KT3Ultra-ARU and I can decide which is the first device I want to boot. But I cannot set the RAID controller to be "read" by the suse after the regular IDE's.

TIA

some soft raid cards (that require bus mastering) force one of the onboard IDE's to be disabled. Try putting all your other devices on one of your onboard controllers/
