  1. Hi, been using xpenology for many years on baremetal (and have a real syno DS410). Recently thought I'd give an old build-a-box a go, it's on a GA X58A-UD3R. Main question is, in the BIOS, I have an "ICH SATA Control Mode" which IIRC has values "IDE", "AHCI" or "RAID", and "SATA Port0-3 Native Mode" with values "Enabled" or "Disabled". The tip for Disabled says something about legacy IDE so I set that to Enabled. Does anyone have guidance on these settings? This mobo has 3 SATA (and one eSATA) interfaces: South Bridge (6xSATA 3Gb/s supporting RAID 0/1/5/10), Marvell 9128, and GA SATA2 chip, but I've disabled the Marvell and the GA SATA connectors in the BIOS. I don't really understand how Syno RAID works, I assume there has to be an Intel South Bridge driver on the xpenology stick but after that I don't understand how the Synology OS builds the RAID, if it uses it's own software or uses the ROM on the mobo or what. So far I set the control mode to IDE and Synology Assistant seems to install the OS OK, but I'm concerned it won't build the RAID right. Thanks.
