So I have two hard drives from a build from years ago that were running in a RAID Strip 0 configuration on a Asus Rampage II Extreme... My question is two fold:
1: Does anyone know a way that I could mount these disks outside of actually booting the disks on the original chipset/raid controller? Like as in is there a software that will allow me to read the drives sledded? There is no problem with the drives, only that i don't have the original system the drives were in.
2. If i wanted to build a super cheap rig that I could use just to boot into these drives, would i need to use the exact same Motherboard or are there other boards with the same RAID support that would let me boot my drives? For instance... I was running an Asus Rampage II Extreme with these drives... but is there another old MoBo that would work as well? Something I could get on eBay or something?
When looking on eBay for old Rampage II Extremes, I was shocked to see them having a $300.00 price tag. Its like an 8 year old motherboard!
Thanks in advance!
