Hi experts,

 I have a dell T3500, I've added two 2TB drives and I would like to mirror them but when I boot it up I don't see the option ctrl-I to go into the RAID controller and setup the RAID.

boot the server using the OpenManage DVD that came with it. Using that you should be able to configure your server.

You may need to turn on the RAID first

Go into BIOS and into the Hard drive section, ensure the RAID ON is selected, that should then show the options screen you need...

HW RAID was an optional card on that system(6i),are you sure you have one?

chipset sez x58 ,may be matrix raid.

I would use the windows raid utility before I would use that controller raid.
