Trying to install on to the Marvell RAID controller on my D975XBX2 . Arch linux install doesn't detect the disks. I've tried modprobe pata_marvell but didn't help any. Where can I get this driver? This is a remarkable motherboard and it would be a shame to have to use some other distro on it.

As you know the Marvell Controller is faster to boot from. It also only supports RAID: 0, 1, 10, (single drives). The intel controller supports RAID: 0, 1, 5, 10, (single drives). So this is how my drives are:

marvell
500-[raid 1]-500 <--boot

500 (single disks) 750


intel
1000------1000
|[all in raid 5]|
1000------1000


I will probably end up with something like this:


marvell
500-[raid 1]-500 <--boot
1000-[raid 1]-1000


intel
1000------1000
|[all in raid 5]|
1000------1000

and this configuration isn't possible unless the drives are on the correct controllers. I don't want to buy a raid card just so arch could (maybe) work with that. . .
