RAID Performance varying with boot method


4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



my Hackintosh is up and running. It's fairly fast but I have a little problem with my Raid setup or boot options.


- If I boot with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] CD, my 4x500Go RAID 0 give a 400MB/S in xBench.

- If I boot directly from the RAID setup with Chameleon 2.0 RC5 r653 or from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] on a USB drive, it gives only 280MB/s. (Installed manually (boot, boot1h and boot0 files on every OSX Helper partition and EFI partitions).


How come there is so much difference ?

What is the differences between [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and Chameleon manual installation ???


I can't accept having a poor 280MB/s on a 4-drives RAID 0 setup...


Thanks for your advices and ideas.

That is very weird...


Can someone tell me how to see the files included in the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] CD ?

I can only see a .txt file.
