I have a ADAPTEC AAR 2610SA 6-PORT SATA RAID 2610 CARD connected to a Dell Poweredge 2800.

Connected to the controller are 5 samsung 1tb disks.

I want to create a raid 5 array with the 5 disk, hoping to end up with a volume of 4tb, but when i do so, the controller make a raid 5 set of 2tb insteat of the 4tb i need.

Seem the i need to set the disks to GPT, but cant figure it out.

Any ideas

thx
