VIA next chipset will support the full set of feature of the newer SATA specification. But not this one.Ah, I didn't know VIA didn't support that. Oh well.
If she can boot from the 80 gigs, by switching the connector, then fine, but I don't know.. a boot repair can fix it thou, but anyway, it is one of the many option to make it ...Wouldn't the 80GB be fine though? I thought RAID 1 just mirrored the data on the drives, so the OS install, etc, would be just fine if run off of 1 HDD? Would you relaly need to reinstall everything?
Granted, it would take care of any messes that the RAID put in, but if they just wiped the 160, they should be able to run off of the 80GB w/o having to reinstall...
I've never played with mirrored array, so I don't know how they behave .
