Question OS/App's one drive want RAID/0 for scratch disk.

System specs:

DFI UT LanParty nF4 Ultra-D motherboard.
AMD 4800+ processor.
4 1gig Kingston Value Ram memory modules.

I have Vista Ultimate 64bit installed on a 250 Segate 410 along with Adobe CS4 Master Suite.

What I would like to do is take 2 80gig WD drives and make a RAID-0 array to use as the scratch disk.

Seems RAID-0 would be better for the reads and writes compared to a single 80gig.

Do I need to do the floppy RAID driver thing, load Vista on the 2 80gig WD's and then change the boot disk back to the Segate 410 and hope Vista see's it ???

Just never done this before and could use some help.

If you build it...They will come...and I will crash it!!!

Switching to Intel
Antec 300, Corsair HX5650W, Asus P5Q PRO Turbo, Intel Q9550, Thermalright SI-128-SE, 2x4 G.Skiell PC64000 DDR2, XFX 4890, 640 Black OS Drive, 2 640 Blacks RAID-0, Audiotrak Prodigy HD2, Vantec SATA EzSwap, Mitsumi floppy, Lian-Li card reader, Lian Li T4, Dell E198WFP, AudioEngine 5 speakers.
In progress build.

Why would you need to do that? Set up the RAID 0 drives in the RAID utility, then boot into Windows, load the raid controller drivers, and then just change your app settings so scratch disk is on the RAID 0 setup.

AMD Phenom II X4 965BE, Asus M5A88-V Evo, 8GB Mushkin Blackline DDR3-1600 , Coolermaster Hyper212+, OCZ Vertex Plus 60GB, Seagate 7200.11 500GB, Antec EA-380
