Windows 2K Advanced Server and RAID configuration
Posted on 2004-10-20
I have a Dell PowerEdge 6600 with the following drive configuration. I am trying to install Windows 2K Advanced Server on it but I am having trouble with the config in the setup portion of Windows. I can't seem to get the OS to install on the drive I need. I configured this RAID by pressing CTRL-M when prompted during the start-up of the server.
Drive 1 & 2 (34 GB) RAID 1, This is where I want to install the OS A00-01/02
Drive 3 (73 GB) RAID 0 A01-01
Drive 4 (73 GB) RAID 0 A02-01
Drive 5 (73 GB) RAID 0 A03-01
Drive 6 (73 GB) RAID 0 A04-01
Drive 7 & 8 (both 73 GB) RAID 1 A05-01/02
Drive 9 & 10 (both 73 GB) RAID 1 A06-01/02
Drive 11 & 12 (both 73GB ) RAID 1 A07-01/02
When I start the OS install I am not seeing this config. It looks like the OS is finding 14 drives.
