LSI RAID controller configuration?


Please, I don't want to get into the different types of RAID or what I'm using it for. I just want to get this card to work the way I want it to.

This is my first go around with an actual physical RAID controller card click here.

I bought this card for home lab use. After successfully installing onto this motherboard click here and doing some test runs I have some questions.

1. What should my SATA on-board motherboard setting be (IDE, RAID, AHCI or disable)? I can only get to the WebBios of the LSI RAID card if the SATA on-board motherboard setting is set to "disable". I'm guessing this makes since because I'm now using the LSI RAID controller to handle all the hard drives.

2. Why doesn't this LSI RAID card detect my SSD? The RAID card detects all my other drives just fine except my SSD.

3. What's the difference between a HBA and a RAID controller? Can you buy a card that is both?

1) When using a RAID card you should disable motherboard RAID (also when not using a RAID card!)
2) Please list the SSD model. The card claims that it supports SSDs.
3) You can usually use a RAID card as an HBA - this is called JBOD mode.

Thank you for replying. The SSD is in the attached.

After talking to LSI's support rep, he basically said there's a compatibility issue since the LSI RAID controller and the MOBO are really old. That card was release in 2010. The ASUS MOBO bios was updated to the latest version (2010).

Yeah, I know I'm working with some old stuff, but I thought I could get it to work. Oh well, time to update my complete system and buy a better more up to date RAID controller.
