I've got three 1TB drives (WD1002FAEX) in a RAID 5 array. It is running Server 2003 R2.
In the BIOS (and during boot) they all three show up as 3.0Gb/s.
The "Rapid Storage Technology" console shows each drive as "SATA transfer rate: 1.5 Gb/s."
These are generation 3 SATA drives, and are capable of 6.0 Gb/s. They are limited to 3.0Gb/s by the ICH7R/DH.
I have tried all the recent drivers and "Rapid Storage Technology" consoles, but they always show up as 1.5 Gb/s.
Can anyone help me get these up to 3.0 Gb/s ?
Are the consoles just reporting the wrong speed?
Thanks for any advice...
I am having the SAME problem and wondering if this post was ever addressed
