Hi, I have an Asus P7P55D Deluxe with Intell P55 and JB Micron SATA controllers. I just changed the SATA mode in the BIOS to AHCI, along with appropriate registry changes and driver. All that is cool... and I am *not* running RAID (it's not enabled and I only have the 1 HDD).

The boot disk and optical drive are on the Intel controller. Is this the optimal configuration?


Should the devices be on separate controllers, if so, is there a preferable controller for the HDD?

As far as I know the sata controller is fully independent. It should be find to have them on the same controller.
One thing I think about intel's is they suggest you run as raid even if you are not configuring an array.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

Hi jefro, yeah I read that now while working on a soundblaster issue. Wish I had set it up as RAID/AHCI at Windows install.

I understand that I cannot change to RAID now, w/o re-loading Win7 and isn't that a destructive reload that would reformat my disk - even w/o running an actual RAID?
