RE: Upgrade from Home Premium to Ultimate
If this is a RAID controller from Promise (two drives mirrored), I got it to
work for awhile with Home Premium but then it eventually caused too many
errors. If you got this on a Dell, it is an unsupported Promise controller
(they--Promis-- will tell you that it is Dell's problem to update the driver
and that they are not going to).
In the end, I removed the controller and just used the two harddrives as
seperate drives, running a backup from one drive to the other. If you really
need RAID, you may have to upgrade the controller. I would avoid Promise.
