This option ROM version is the last version for the X79 chipset, Intel has updated to a 13 series, but no function on X I used fdisk and mkfs. This means that your BIOS and other operating systems think that you really have two separate disks, but purely at the software level, your operating system uses some OS-specific on-disk format for RAID mirroring, striping, parity bits, whatever. Performance Performance largely depends on how you configure the basic parameters of the RAID array, and less on the specific solution. Boot support and a slightly different feature set. I had to do it before launching the ubiquity installer. The kernel also supports Windows Dynamic Disks Raid.

Usually 0 as specified in the ixh9r 9. Registration is quick, simple and absolutely free. This process can take a minute or so and during that time you now have 1 disk in the array ignoring command codes so the Software raid software will crash and mark the array as degraded.

Intel Rapid Storage Technology

It is critical to stick to this order, since in the case that Windows is installed first on the fakeraid, gparted does not recognize the Windows-Partitons and tell you, that the whole RAID-Stripe is not formated.

This version is designed for the new 8 series chipset. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. It’s usually much more of a win than dual-booting. When I tried it, it didn’t work the first time and I had to limux install dmraid.

Learn how and when to remove these template messages. With a hardware array chip all the disks can go into hot-swap trays and when one fails, a red light turns on, on the failed disk, you eject it, replace it with a new disk, then the itnel raid card automatically rebuilds the array while the server is still running. I had to do it before launching the ubiquity installer.


Introduction to Linux – A Hands on Guide This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

I recommend this as the very last step, since the time you invest here will be lost, if something does not go according to plan. When a block on one disk fails a failure reaches up to the application level, currently it doesn’t try to read from the second disk. Also, if you are using a Live CD install, “”do not”” deselect grub install. If you lose a disk in a software RAID array essentially this allows you to immediately stop the server, make a complete backup, replace the failed disk and maybe the rest of the disks, then either recreate the array or attempt to rebuild.

Unfortunately, I’ve got the following error: The Installation guide for 8.

Intel ICH9R SATA Raid driver – CentOS

Since I don’t need the dm-raid module in the modules, I need to add rmraid, which I just used nano to edit the modules file and added a new line: Do not format nor partition using the ubiquity installer.

Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. If it is not in the man pages or the how-to’s this is the place! In summary, do not use software raid for a server that cannot tolerate some downtime if a disk fails. December Learn how and when to remove this template message.


These people shouldn’t have to add a separate hard drive just so they can boot Linux. Here oinux the general instructions rakd this: Stick a mdadm cheat-sheet above your desk and be done with it.

So if a disk did fail, it’s probably not OK to just shrug and put in a new disk and start the rebuild: I can build it using mdadm, so Linux doesn’t actually hide the underlying disks from me.

This wiki describes how to get Linux to ich9t the RAID as one disk and boot from it in the same way that windows will install on this type of device. Another reason for using FakeRAID is if you ichr9 a disk mirror and a hard drive crashes, you can down the system and replace the failed drive and rebuild the mirror from the BIOS without having to boot into the operating system.

On reboot you now have 2 disks with the same sector which might have different data between disks, so now the software RAID manager does not know which is “good”, the disk that didn’t have an error or the disk that remapped a sector with the best approximation of the data that it had.

Who says the driver will work the same way under both operating systems? This should also work when initially setting up Grub, as described above.
