Lion + Raid + Ahci

Recommended Posts

Hello guys.

 

I have luckly installed OsX Lion on my pc. But still i have some tweaks to do

 

My PC specs are

 

MoBo - Asus p8z68v - pro

Cpu - i5 2500k <3

Ram - 8 MB vegenance @ 1600

Gpu - gfx 570 msi tf III (vendor id - 1086)

HDD - 2*WD 650MB in RAID 0 for Win 7

-2 -*wd 160 :) for lion

 

My problem is, when i set RAID in Bios for my win7 system, Lion dont boot. So every time i need to turn of RAID and set on AHCI for OsX Boot.

 

It's weird because I was thinking that when I set raid in bios Non-raid disk should be in ahci mode.

 

I can't install new lion because disk utility don't see my wd 160 disk :( but i dont know why.

 

So maybe someone of you know the way to have RAID for win 7 and boot LION w/o changing bios setup every time i wanna boot to diffrent system.

 

 

many thanks

Use Marvell ports to make a Raid for Windows and keep Intel ports in AHCI mode, OS X won't see Intel ports in RAID mode.

Sorry to revive this topic.

I'm trying to install iAtkos L2 10.7.2 on an Intel machine. I have two disk joined in a Intel BIOS RAID 0. There are 4 primary partitions, first is System reserved, Second is Windows 7 disk system, Third is also a NTFS primary partition, and last partition is HFS+ formated using gparted utility.

I have problems using this RAID volume for installing iAtkos, because in Disk Uility I saw in the left panel only the DVD containing iAtkos installation disk.

I mention that in boot screen I can see all NTFS drives + DVD drive.

The installation disk is OK, I used for a Virtual Box installation which is working very well, but now I need to build a dualboot machine.

 

Any help is appreciate!

Thank you.
