I've been wondering about this. We have a server with a Asus A7N8X
mobo, which has the Silicon Image SATA RAID. I couldn't get the kernel
module to recognise the HW RAID array when it was set up in the BIOS.
I finished up only using one drive until we got to the bottom of the
problem (clue: we never did). Using Linux SW RAID, can I create a
RAID-1 array using my existing single partition ext3 disk and one
other without losing all my existing data?
