confused on Raid on old motherboard and how to get to use on new one.

ok i have another question for people and wanted to open up a new thread for it.

If you read the post below this one by me you will come to understand that recently my motherboard has crapped out on me.

Now i have another dilema. My old mother board had http://usa.asus.com/prog/spec.asp?m=A7V8X&langs=09#

had RAID (optional) RAID 0 support by two to three Parallel ATA or Serial ATA connectors. RAID 1 support by two Parallel or Serial ATA connectors.

And i used this with a 120 gig hardrive. Now its been awhile but i had to do some weird Raid setup on the drive. so it will work.

Now that i am having to get a new mother board im not seeing any boards with this feature exactly. I cant afford to lose the data on the drive in question. So i was wondering will i be able to make this motherboard http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=13-127-167&depa=0 work with the hardrive that was being used witht he old raid slot on the now dead motherboard.

A freind told me to Buy a IDE pci slot and use that but will that allow me to see all the data on the drive first off. I really can lose it. Please help

I think this is a good description of everything. but ask any questions you want.

Sounds like you had the RAID IDE slot set to just be used as an additional IDE port. If this is true, you'll have no problem in the new setup.

dreamliner77 i remeber something about making an array out of the disk.. (its been so long since i acually messed with it i can barely remeber.)
If this were true what would that mean.

If it's just one hard disk, I doubt it's an array. You'd have to do it with two partitions on the disk and I don't see any purpose of that. I guess all I can say is to try it with the new mobo, if it doesn't work, then try to trouble shoot from there.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
