Re: RAID 1 after first drive Installation
If your mobo supports raid
Read the mobo manual, available from Asus if you dont have it

Re: RAID 1 after first drive Installation
mobo supports RAID - standard instruction is to install and RAID drives
before OS install.

Re: RAID 1 after first drive Installation
with a mirror drive you can "usually" instal the second drive, correctly
amend any bios settings then reboot & enter the raid config utility to build
the array (this only applies to a mirror array)
NB I've not checked your mobo manual but on some, certain sata connectors
have to be used, I assume also that your raid controler is by default
supported in Vista & you dont have to use the F6 option to install third
party (raid controler) drivers in either a clean or repair instalation.

Re: RAID 1 after first drive Installation
