so i bought 2 WDEARS drives (2TB) to upgrade a raid 1 array in an xp machine.
trying to use the WD software to do the boundry alignment, but it wont recognize the drives if they are in raid 1 mode (this is using an ASUS M2N32-SLI deluxe motherboard with NVidia 590 SLI chip set).
so i split the raid, and the software see the drives fine. but when i recreate a raid partition it breaks the boundry settings because it forms a new drive/partition.
once i create the raid 1 array from the 2 drives, the software (true image wd edition and wd align windows) cant see them.
so i created a bootable dvd while the raid was split, thinking that might work. boot with the dvd, but same thing, it cant see the raid array.
other software can see the raid drives (like Hard Disk Sentinel for example, GParted another example) so why cant this?
this has been a nightmare, since nothing works and the performance is terrible. and none of the wd software seems to work on the arrays.
i dont want to use the jumper since i need more than one partition.
