    This is sort of a bug report. I'm running a Soltek K8Tpro-939 MB with the Promise 579 RAID chip integrated. I have a 2- drive IDE RAID-1 array on the Promise, and a one drive SATA stripe attached.
    Every time I run ATI either from the CD or from the Secure Zone, the RAID-1 array is thrown off-line and has to be rebuilt. This is EVERY time, and it's the only time the array goes off-line. Very strange.
