Intel motherboard RAID configuration and install the RAID driver

Following these operations, you can brand manufacturers at some of the Service Engineer of the process of door-to-door services, see the examples of very fast operation. Linker collections cited in this article only.

First, adjust the BIOS settings:
1. Open SATARAID. Boot into the Bios press F2 key interface, choose Advanced -> ATA Controller Configuration to Configure SATA as RAID, is set to Enabled, that is, open the sata raid function, and then press F10 key to save and exit.

Note: Main at BIOS options first, Quite Boot default is Enabled, open status, (boot show intel LOGO) in order to facilitate the configuration of the BIOS, you can turn off, and all configuration is completed, re-open. s3000 series is divided into LSI and Intel Matrix Storage two modes, two RAID, so RAID is not the same driver can not be universal. RAID5 configuration at INTEL model may be used. S5000 series RAID5 configuration required add RAIDKEY.

Second, configure RAID. Adjust in the BIOS to have a chance to see the “Ctrl + E” tips, in accordance with prompt to enter the RAID configuration interface to configure.
1. Select new configuration;
2. In accordance with the space bar to select the hard disk status ONLIN A00-0X.
3. By F10, enter the next step by pressing the space bar again to “select configutable array (s)” menu option in the red part of the status is set to <SPAN-1>.
4. Again click F10, display can be configured RAID Level, where we need to configure.
5. Then select Accept agreed direct configuration, press the Enter key tips to preserve configuration;

5. Upon completion of resumption of the reproduction of documents, please remove the floppy disk.

In the course of these operations, if the Engineer contractor can put the CD-ROM and floppy disk with a clone like their own back-up, but these are relatively simple, first, the relationship between you and the Engineer before and after a good deal, and that the software engineer living it does not matter from the official website can also download up to be, so back up to these CD-ROM, floppy disk, you can take the time to test their own research.
