ideneb and raid?
hi people. first post here. nice to meet you all.
my setup is as follows q6600 at 3.2ghz
8gb crucial ballistix
2x wd raptor 74
2x samsung 500
ok. so im using the ideneb 1.3 10.5.4 (or 10.5.5) disc
on a single drive. i can install with no problems
i use settings ichx fix, jmicron, the speedstep kernel, adi 1988b, nvinject 768, applebios 800.
i use diskutil while im on the desktop and create the raptor raid.
the drive comes online. it works. i can copy data on and off.
NO PROBLEM, everything works perfect and speedy.
but shit, why use raptors for a storage drive. i want it to run the OS like in linux or windows.
even if its software raid, i dont care. i dont wanna waste my drive.
but i just cant seem to get it to boot up when i install the OS on the raid drives
so i start to install,
i set in my bios to raid mode, on the intel config. i create the raid array.
continue to the installation, when the setup starts
i use diskutility and create the raid0 with the 2 raptors.
it comes online no problems.
then i use the same settings, continue to install and it finishes.
now here is the problem. when i restart.. the intel raid is gone. broken..
no array, broken data, no go, it seems when i use diskutil and install.. the OS breaks the intel raid controller settings.
ok, so next install.
i used a tutorial i found here.. Message Board - Bootable OSX86 Raid Walkthrough
in bios, i use AHCI in all single drives.
i use a 40gb ide HDD and install the OS on that. same settings.
boots up no problem, done. working.
i use diskutil and create the raptor raid again, it comes online and usable.
i use SuperDuper and directly clone the 40gb hdd to the raptor array. DONE. i check the files, all the same.
i follow the tutorial step by step.
ok, i finished all the terminal commands and it looks all good.
i shut down, turn off the pc. unhook the 40gb. turn on pc. set one of the two raptors to boot first.
blam! no go. , i go back. change to the other. blam! no go.
i try to install the OS again, this time with bios in raid mode.
follows same steps as above, with superduper.
blam! no go..
WTF! i need help. why wont it work!
