    Silicon Image 3114 SATA RAID

    kemical, Yea, I wish I could do that:) Reality is the chip is embedded on the motherboard. The only way to update the SI 3114 would be a BIOS update. There aren't any and Asus stopped any development on this board years ago. However, I was able to set each drive as a single JBOD and override...

    Silicon Image 3114 SATA RAID

    So, Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe with Silicon Image 3114 SATA Raid on motherboard... Got everything up and running on Windows 10 x32 (x64 won't load, I think it does see enough RAM) thanks to Neemobeer. In order to boot into Windows I must configure something on the SI RAID controller. If I don't...

    RAID 5, hardware or software

    Thanks to my discovery of this forum my video server is well on its way to being set-up (Thanks to Neemobeer). My next question has to do with setting up a RAID 5 array. As I understand RAID it provides some level of data redundancy and a higher read speed than a plain old JBOD (spanning)...

    Can't boot from DVD or USB when hard drive is plugged in

    So...Can not select FAT32. The Windows10x32 ISO does not support that format. I am trying a few advanced options because what can it hurt:0 "Add fixes for old BIOSes" and "Use Rufus MBR with BIOS ID" To me, your diagnosis is correct. The boot USB that is being created by MCT is not 100%...

    Can't boot from DVD or USB when hard drive is plugged in

    Neemobeer, Righto. Just to note, I created per your original instructions AND I got a different result. That is progress any way you look at it. When I booted from the Rufus created USB I got an error BUT I got a failed boot. "Recovery Your PC/Device needs to be repaired. The...

    Can't boot from DVD or USB when hard drive is plugged in

    Neemobeer, Thanks for the reply. This is an older Phoenix Award BIOS, before the days of UEFI. Mr. Peabody, set the way back machine for 2004. Although I know what you want me to look for above there is no hard drive mode or Boot Mode. This is pre-AHCI. I downloaded Rufus. Ran it. Program...
