Thanks for the reply Amy. No OS on the RAID structure and also it is non-bootable, was used just as a big storage.
So, I guess if I buy a newer Intel controller than ICH10R then I will have no issues to plug in the drives and get the RAID recognized, right?
Evgeni, yes that is correct, as long as the chipset of your selection supports RAID 5 and is only use for storage it should be properly recognized.
If you have more questions, please let me know.
