Promise TX4310 SATA RAID5 Controller

Post by GeekMaster » Thu Feb 26, 2009 10:15 am

Can your software access;
1) Promise TX4310 SATA RAID5 Controller, chipset is a PDC40719?
2) Promise SATA TX4 300, chipset is a PCD 40718?
3) Promise SATA TX2 Plus, chipset is a PDC20775?

I use all of these cards in my computers at work so I am looking for a viable Imaging software which will work with these controllers. Also, if your software doesn't see a particular controller, do you have a way of loading a driver through either a FLOPPY or USB drive such as when you press F6 during Windows installation. Specifically like when you need to add the controller's driver to the Windows setup.

If you are asking about the Windows version of R-Drive Image, it will access any hard drive controller visible by Windows.
If you are asking about the Startup version of R-Drive Image, I'd rather make a test: create a startup CD and test whether it sees the controllers or not.
See http://www.r-tt.com/downloads/Drive_Image_Manual.pdf - > Advanced Disk Actions -> Create Startup Disks.
You may download and install R-Drive Image Demo and test that during the evaluation period of 15 days: http://www.drive-image.com/
