Setting up new server - stuck already - ARRRGH!
Posted on 2004-10-08
I'm hoping to set up a new server. It has 2-80GB hard drives. I do not want to set up a RAID configuration, just a standard drive configuration. My plan is to partition the first drive into two 40 partitions. One of these partitions will be for the OS and other software, the other for file storage. I want the second hard drive to be all for file storage.
When I turn on the computer it seems to think that I'm setting up a RAID configuration. It seems to detect the hard drives, but does not install them. When I then stick the OS into the CDROM, it aborts setup because it says it can't find a hard drive.
The relavent computer specs:
Systemax Full Tower Server
865PE NEO2-PFISR ATX Motherboard
2x80GB Maxtor SATA hard drives
I can't believe I'm so lost - all I did was turn it on!
