Promise RAID

Option name:

Promise RAID

Possible values of an option:

[Enabled], [Disabled]

The option description:

The given option allows to involve ([Enabled]) or to disconnect ([Disabled]) the additional RAID-controller integrated on the motherboard. The option does not mention the standard IDE/SATA-controller (or, for older models, simply IDE-controller) a chipset.

To connect hard disks and other devices to the additional controller it is necessary in the event that the standard controller of a chipset does not support the demanded interface (we will tell, it is necessary to connect an IDE-drive of optical disks, and the chipset controller allows to use only SATA-devices), or does not provide necessary functions (for example, you want to unite hard disks in a RAID-file, but this функционал is absent in чипсетном the controller). In other cases all available stores are better for connecting to the standard IDE/SATA-controller of a chipset, and additional — to disconnect. It will simplify operating system installation, plus, will release resources occupied with the controller, having made their accessible to other devices.
