The story here for two drives under RAID1 condition (initialized
w.FastBuild BIOS util) with the mentioned ASUS box having PDC 20319
RAID on board. Linux without dmraid sees sda, sdb and partitions but no
single drive. :mad: 

During the start phase of current tests I had the situation, that I
could establish an install of Linux on sda, but sdb was empty. Not even
a clone with BIOS could sync the mirror. This tells me that this ISN'T a
hw raid at all - period.
