RAID Configurations
Your PCI ATA 133 RAID Card supports 5 different types of configurations, please refer to the
following table for details:
RAID Type
Description
Connection
RAID 0
Disk Striping
Requires 2 hard drives of the same
model per array.
In RAID 0 mode, files are broken into
stripes and are sent to both drives
simultaneously. This mode increases
the data transfer rate and has the best
overall speed performance among all
RAID modes.
Connect 1 hard drive to the
Primary and Secondary IDE
channels and set both hard
drives to Master.
Warning: This PCI ATA 133
RAID Card can only support one
RAID 0 array of 2 hard disk
drives due to the data transfer
rate of 32bit PCI slots. Using
more than 2 hard drives in one
RAID 0 array could cause the
controller to malfunction.
RAID 1
Disk Mirroring
Requires 2 hard drives of the same
model per array.
In RAID 1 mode, all data from the
primary drive will be duplicated to the
mirror drive in the array. This mode
can prevent data loss by backing up
your files to the mirror drive.
Connect 1 hard drive to the
Primary and Secondary IDE
channels and set both hard
drives to Master or both hard
drives to Slave.
RAID 0+1
Disk Striping +
Mirroring
Requires 4 hard drives of the same
model per array.
All the hard drives attached to the
RAID controller will be configured into
two RAID 0 arrays. Files are broken
into stripes and are sent to the primary
array for data striping and then
duplicated to the mirror array for data
mirroring. This mode increases data
transfer rates and also backs up your
data to prevent data loss.
Connect 2 hard drives to the
Primary and Secondary IDE
channels and set one hard drive
as the Master and the other as
the Slave drive for both of the
IDE channels.
Requires 2 or more hard drives.
JBOD
Disk Concatenation All the hard drives attached to the
RAID controller will be read as one
large capacity hard drive by the
system.
IDE
Normal
Requires 1 or more hard drive(s).
In IDE mode, all connected hard
drives will be configured as
independent drives.
4
Connect 2 hard disk drives to the
Primary and Secondary IDE
channels and set one hard drive
as the Master and the other as
the Slave drive for both of the
IDE channels.
User’s should connect hard
drive(s) to the PCI ATA 133
RAID Card so that each IDE
channel does not have two hard
drives set as Master or two hard
drives set as Slave.
Hardware Installation
To install your PCI ATA 133 RAID Card, please follow the instructions listed below:
1. Turn off your computer. Turn off the power switch on your power supply (if applicable) and
disconnect the power cable from the back of your computer.
2. Remove the side cover of your computer case.
3. Locate an available PCI slot on your motherboard; if necessary, remove the expansion slot
bracket from your computer case.
4. Align your PCI ATA 133 RAID Card with the PCI slot, and then carefully slide it into the PCI
slot firmly until it is securely in place.
5. Secure your PCI ATA 133 RAID Card to your computer case with a mounting screw.
6. Attach your internal hard drive(s) to your PCI ATA 133 RAID Card using the enclosed IDE
cable(s).
NOTE: Make sure you have correctly set the master/slave jumper(s) for all your hard drive(s),
and remember to connect your internal hard drive(s) to the power supply before you turn on
your computer.
7. Replace the side cover of your computer case.
8. Connect the power cable to the back of your computer and turn on the power switch on your
power supply (if applicable).
Configuring RAID Array
Once you have successfully installed your PCI ATA 133 RAID Card in your computer, you must
configure the RAID controller through the RAID BIOS.
Note: Please make sure you have correctly configured the RAID controller prior to the
software installation for your PCI ATA 133 RAID Card. Failure to do so may result in system
errors and/or hardware conflicts.
