I have a small WHS running for a while now. The server has the following specs.
Processor Intel Pentium G620
Motherboard Intel DH67BL
Ram Corsair CMX8GX3M2A1333C9
Power Nexus Value 430
Harddisk WD WD10ERZX
Case Cooler Master CM 690 II Advanced
OS Windows Home Server 2011 64bit
To expand my storage space I purchased a raid controller Areca ARC-1220-X8. I installed the controller on the motherboard but now the server won't boot. I do not even see the bios of the motherboard. It just beeps an then nothing. I updated the bios and alle drivers to most recent versions.
Anybody an idea what the problem is? Or does the motherboard only support gpu's?
We would like to inform you that Intel motherboards are not designed to support RAID controllers on the PCI Express* slot. The behavior is normal and expected since is a compatibility issue with the RAID device. Also Win Server 2011 is not a fully compatible Operating System (OS) for the board.
