A desktop build is being planned using a Ryzen 5 5600x CPU with a Linux Debian 11 operating system.
I was considering putting the operating system on a RAID 1 configuration of two HDDs and the user data
on a separate RAID 1 configuration of another two HDDs.
However I now understand that a Ryzen motherboard does not have RAID support for my chosen CPU
and I would need a very expensive hardware RAID controller card if I wanted the operating system to be
in a RAID configuration.
So it seems i can put the user data in a software based RAID array, but the operating system needs
a very expensive hardware RAID controller card.
Can anyone help so that I can avoid needing a very expensive hardware RAID controller card ?
I run an x570 Taichi that supports multiple RAID types
Thanks for your reply. The desktop is being built for me so I don't know which motherboard is being used.
All I understand is that the motherboard doesn't have an AMD RAID controller driver suitable for the 5600x.
However, I have just found the following :-
and I wonder if this shows that a suitable RAID controller driver is now available for my proposed
system of RAID 1 arrays.
