onboard Promise Raid Controller cant see all the space on a drive
Posted on 2004-10-12
Hey all, Im wondering if any of you can help me, i have the below:
ECS L7VTA Pcb1.1 bios version 1.7j
1xMaxtor 30 Gb on Primary channel
2x Seagate 20Gb drives on Promise Raid controller (onboard) in Ch0>>Master Ch1>>master arrangement
I boot and enable the raid controller in the bios, create a stripe array, and you would assume it would be 40Gb, but it only seems to take 2Gb from each drive, thus landing me with a 4Gb stripe set, pointless seeming as they are 20 Gb drives, any help will be much appreciated.
