I have an ICH7 family chipset with 82801GR/GH (at least, according to IMSC 18.104.22.1682. I currently have two ~200Gb SATA drives configured as RAID 1 and I purchased 2 new 500 drives due to both existing drives failing/old/small. I did not need larger as I now have a Netgear READYNas 1.5TB Raid 1 data staorage device.
The drives are located on Ports 0 and 2.
System is a Dell E510 that came as a RAID 1.
Drives contain expensive software such as Photoshop etc that I do not want to lose. Some disks are lost etc.
(Has worked wonderful till now. Port 0 Drive failed. System had the BSD due to IASTOR.SYS failure. However...Port 0 has been recently rebuilt by Port 2 Drive.)
I would like to do:
1) Upgrade the smaller drives to the larger drives
2) Convert the system to Win 7 Home Premium UPGRADE.
