I'm trying to get a new system based on SB710 with AHCI RAID.

I've installed WS2003 SP2 onto a hard drive located on a non-AHCI SATA port and have added two SATA HDDs onto two AHCI-enabled ports with AHCI enabled in the BIOS.

Although RAIDXpert lists the drives and allows me to create a logical drive, no matter what option I chose RAID0, RAID1, JBOD or RAID Spare (I want the latter), I get a simple fail message at the confirmation step

Now if I set the BIOS to RAID instead of AHCI, RAIDXpert can create logical drives, however, I only have RAID 0 and RAID 1 as options and not RAID Spare (or JBOD).

Is this a limitation of the software? On another system with Intel ICH, using Intel Storage Matrix Manager, I can do all this. However, the RAIDXpert doesn't seem to give me the functionality I'm after.

Any ideas?
