About 3 months ago I recently took a server with a SuperMicro motherboard off a network and put it into storage. It was running RAID 5. I replaced the drives with new Samsung EVO QVO drives and fired it back up expecting to see the RAID menu appear but it didn't.
>It is a Supermicro X9SRL-F ver 3.2
I made changes in the BIOS including:
-Advanced > SATA Configuration > AHCI (changed to RAID mode)
-Advanced > SCU Configuration > Storage Controller Unit > Enabled
-Advanced > SCU Configuration >SCU RAID Option ROM/UEFI Driver > Enabled
I have even removed the CMOS, waited about 30 min, put in a new CMOS battery with no change. Nothing appears in the start-up that allows me to enter the RAID controller.
If anyone has experience with these motherboards, please let me know what I am missing - strange that it had RAID setup previously, I made no changes other than the new hard drives and the RAID option does not appear.
