RAID newbie needs help with RAID 1 os install
Posted on 2008-01-31
Later today I will be attempting to install a Windows OS on a machine with a 2 port Adaptec/Supermicro (don't know model yet) raid card. I have 2 80gb sata drives. I'm a little confused on how to go about installing the OS to RAID 1. I used the F6 method and loaded the driver for the card, started through the windows install, reached the disk management section and got lost. I was able to see both drives but had no way of creating the raid 1.
I assume this partition must be created before the windows install? If so how do you go about that.
Or, is it possible to simply install the windows os to 1 drive, then after it is installed enter the Adaptec Storage Manager and create the raid 1?
