Dont quite follow this statement;
all RAID drive configurations require that each of the drives
is using the same interface standard"
If you are saying all drives, where raid is used for some, must use the same
interface that is incorrect.
My sys is happily running raid on one controler, other sata drives on an
other sata controler, and ide drives on an ide controler.
But then I may have missunderstood you.
