I can't stress it enough, that RAID on a desktop isn't worth the hassle, especially since it doesn't achieve your ultimate goal anyway. It's a fad that died out years ago. Golden and I are just making other suggestions based on our experience to help you better reach what you ultimately set out to do.
Heya, yeah to be fair I may just have to bite the bullet on this one, however another thing I should not before I go ahead and just install OS on one HDD,
I tried to install a legit copy of vista today, and as per usual I go to locaqte the drivers
, and it cannot find the RAID drivers for vista either... is this because they are on a USB and not a floppy drive,
A decent wWin7 RAID Controller is about £100 so I can't afford to buy that as well, beign a student and that lol,
I really do appreciate all your advice I just primarily wanted to make sure this was defo not going to happen before moving onto the next alternative
