I have the following:
- MAC PRO (Model Number: A1186) (PCIe - SLOTS)
At present I am using the software RAID however I wish to move to the hardware raid because of the following:
- Performance (4 x 300gb SATA II in RAID 5)
- Redundancy (Raid 5, 1 drive can fail and system will be online)
I do not wish to use the Apple RAID card (very expensive), I would like to use an aftermarket one which is cheaper.
- Does anyone have a WORKING aftermarket RAID card working in their MAC PRO (TOWER)? -(Have done some research, ROCKETRAID, need confirmation)
- If so to the above, does it work from boot?
