Question: I would like to use RAID functions with K8NF4G-SATA2 motherboard. When I adjust the "RAID Mode" option as "Stripe Mirroring" or "RAID 5" (picture A, B) in MediaShield Utility, the system appeared an error message "Invalid number of disks selected" (picture C, D). Why?

picture C, D.
(10/17/2005) Answer: K8NF4G-SATA2 supports RAID 0 (Striping), RAID 1 (Mirroring) and JBOD (Spanning) RAID modes, but it does not support RAID 0+1 (Stripe Mirroring) and RAID 5 modes. When you adjust the "RAID Mode" option as "Stripe Mirroring" or "RAID 5" mode in MediaShield Utility, the system will show a message "Invalid number of disks selected" to remind you that the system does not support "Stripe Mirroring" and "RAID 5" modes.
So please do not choose "Stripe Mirroring" and "RAID 5" modes on K8NF4G-SATA2.
