I'm planning on building a new OSx86 box and was planning on using an Adaptec 3400S SCSI RAID controller with my 2 74GB U320 drives, but after doing some research it looks like I might have to go with SATA for the OS X boot. Has anybody gotten any SCSI RAID set up working, Adaptec or not? I would gladly pick up a new RAID controller if it has OS X (Leopard) support.

Anyone?

I've already ordered a 74GB Raptor to dedicate to OS X, while using the SCSI array for Linux and Windows. Not having to deal with SCSI and no dual booting should make life easier with the install, no?

LSI FusionMPT SCSI controllers seem to work. I've used the 21320, same board as the 22320 as well.

search on the forums for LSI SCSI, several posts, including some with ebay listings and pictures.

Software raid on the LSI controllers works fine. Haven't seen anyone with SCSI hardware raid though, although possibly an LSI FusionMPT hardware raid card would do the trick.....

Actually yes, I boot with a SCSI hardware RAID that was configured at BIOS level and OSX Lion sees it just fine. Twin Fujitsu 15K SCSI drives....flying!
