http://ubuntuforums.org – On my new build I am planning to use 2 HDD's {Samsung F1 Spinpoint RAID Class} and a Gigabyte MOBO {GA-MA790GPT-UD3H} and I've been reviewing the manual from Gigabyte {pdf} and have two questions. Q1 If I am planning to use Ubuntu 64-bit for the Host in a software RAID 1 config. on this system build should I set my jumpers on my HDD's to cable select on both? Q2 Should I set the SATA controller on the MOBO for AHCI mode? Note: Host is because I plan for V-Box and more Ubuntu inside ):P=D> (Hardware)
