Is there any way to make two hard drives on my powermac g4 show up as one?
Woof, Woof - Dawg
I read most of it and I'm now afraid to even touch my G4!!!!
Perhaps if you tell us what you are trying to accomplish and why then we might be in a better position to help you.
im trying to accomplish making two hard drives show up as one.
Yeah...RAID. Otherwise separate discs show up as...well, separate discs.
Wow, I think everyone here had no problem reading your single sentence original post. If regurgitating your first post is your way of providing additional information to people actually trying to help you then have fun.
Umm, I understood him fine. He wants 2 HDD's (or partitions?) show up as a single one on his desktop.
Yes, but if he can help us to understand why he needs that then maybe there might be a different solution than a RAID.
well he has a PM G4 so i guess he is trying to expand two discs to look like the one physical partition. easily done.
chuck in your OS install disc, boot it up, launch disk utility. erase the HDs (zero is recommended). configure them as a raid device and choose the one that lets you stripe the data. simple.
Do you want higher speed with higher chance of failure, or
loss of space but with data redundancy?
No, you're not. You're trying to make two hard drives show up as one volume.
