Thank you for joining the Intel communities.
We will need more information, what is the RAID you have configured?
Is your SSD part of a RAID or it is used as acceleration?
What is the motherboard model and Windows version?
It will be great if you can post a picture of the RSTe showing the RAID configuration.
Thanks very much for the reply.
I currently don't have any RAID configured. When I enter the Intel RSTe controller home page, I see three disks in the drive list: my two installed HDD's and my installed SSD. I am wondering if there is a way I can hide/remove the SSD from the drive list, so that the user cannot configure it as part of a RAID array (without removing the SSD from the system altogether). Is there a way I can do this in the BIOS?
The CPU is an Intel Xeon D-1548 @ 2.00 Ghz. There is no OS running at the time, as I break into the RSTe controller while BIOS is still booting.
Is it possible to remove the SSD from RAID eligibility?
Thanks a lot,

Thank you for clarifying on that.
I’m sorry the IRSTe does not have an option to remove the SSD from RAID eligibility; at this point you will need to explain your customer not to do anything with the SSD, I personally have not seen how to do it or if actually exits an option to do this from BIOS or with any other software, if somebody else know how to configure the SSD like this is free to share the information with us.
Intel does not have a motherboard to configure the hard drives like this from BIOS either, if your motherboard is from a third party manufacturer I suggest contacting them to check if they have a solution from BIOS.
I know this is not what you wanted to hear but I cannot give you false expectations.
Thank you, Ivan, for the help. Unless anyone knows of a way to modify the BIOS to exclude the SSD from RAID eligibility, we will likely have to document this for our customers.
You’re very welcome!
I recommend checking some other threads through the website to see if somebody was able find a way to do it.
