[XI 3650] Create Raid 0

Postby deak » Thu Dec 04, 2008 14:04

Hi,

I've tried to set up an Raid 0 Arrey on my XI 3650 since two days and now I need Help from experts!

I wrote almost anything but could not find nothing regarding to the problem which is:

1.) if I go into the Raid-Bios I can not selekt the disks! They are grey
2.) I can not save my settings!

What is it?

PS: Yes I've maid an SYS.-Bios Update.

Hello,

I have a similar problem as I can't access the utility for creating a raid during system boot (http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/i ... 021266.htm). However, I can create a raid volume driver with the application "Intel Matrix Storage Manager" which is pre-installed in windows vista.

Does anyone know how to create a raid volume during start up?
E.g. http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/imsm/sb/CS-021701.htm#1

This is an article on how to create a raid on Vista: http://www.legitreviews.com/article/454/3/

P.S. I have enabled the RAID in BIOS and I have updated to the latest BIOS version.

Hello,

I have exactly the same question but I haven't found anything so far.

Does anyone else know how to access the RAID menu during boot startup?

I updated the Fujitsu Siemens BIOS to 1.0E (PHENIX)
Is it possible to update Intel Matrix BIOS ?

I know you can use Intel Matrix Storage Console in Windows Vista to create RAID but I want to create a clean RAID configuration during system boot start up.
