I've looked over whole internet, and I am very surprised to be unable to
find any answers to this.
I am setting up Windows Dynamic Striped (RAID0) or Spanned volume (GPT) over
four SATA hard drives 1Tb each. Everything is successful. I format the drive,
copy stuff on to it, read it back, its fast, very nice. Then I reboot. After
boot up I foind out that my D: drive is gone, i.e., volume is offline (as
reported by Disk Manager). I can boot as I am using separate (IDE or SATA)
hard drive to boot the Vista from.
Now, if I configure the striped volume to be less then 2Tb (e.g., stripe two
1Tb disks or four x 500Mb partition each), everything works fine. I reboot
and the volume is still there running happily.
No windows event log I can find corresponds to this problem.
The configuration is:
Gigabyte motherboard on Intel P35 chipset (another box has X38)
c: 1x HD (IDE 800Gb in one box, SATA 320Gb in another) to boot from.
d: 4x 1Tb SATA HD (I've tried IDE emulation, AHCI and Intel Matrix RAID -
h/w raid disabled)
z: IDE DVDROM
Is there anybody has the same problem?
