RAID 1 compatibility with Optiplex 760

This question is not answered

Are there compatibility issues installing a RAID controller and setting up two hard drives with RAID 1 on an Optiplex 760?  Anybody tried this?  I'm not sure what the standard motherboard is for this system.  Heres the info:

  • There is no native Raid support in the system. If you want to run Raid you will need to use an add in controller card.

  • Thanks.  That's what I suspected.  I just wondered if anybody had run into compatibility issues installing a controller card.  What should I look for when choosing a controller card?

  • I purchased a 4 port PCI raid add in card off eBay and it worked fine in my 760.

  • I know my reply is several years late , but it might help somebody with the same issue.

  • Due to it's age, this thread has been locked.
