I'm the owner of a Shuttle SP35P2 Barebone system (SP35P2, RAID switched on and configured), 2x 1TB hardrive, 8GB RAM, Ubuntu Linux 10.04 LTS 64 bit).
I have bought an eSATA drive but I'm not sure if I have to change the bios settings to use the eSATA ports on the back of my system. It seems that the ports currently are not activated.
Looking at the following topic ( http://us.shuttle.com/SCGFaq/afmviewfaq.aspx?faqid=126 ) I should enable it from the BIOS (OnChip SATA Device) but I'm afraid that I can't use my RAID setup anymore after changing it.
Will I be able to enable the eSATA ports without influencing my RAID configuration? Is it supported? I'm running Ubuntu Linux version 10.04?
