I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this.
I was looking to get a PCI Promise ATA ultra 100 controller card. I want to add more drives to my system.
Click here for web site.
I have set up quite a few system that have onboard Promise RAID controllers. On those systems when using the IDE channels there is a long "detecting..." at startup. The delay is there even if the RAID is not enabled and it is setup as an IDE controller.
My question is, will the addon PCI card have the same delay or not? I have looked for this information but I can't seem to find it.
Note: This is not a RAID controller card.
