    Cannot create raid volume using 8TB Drives

    kentann

      I'm trying to create a raid volume using 2 drives that show in the Intel RST app as sata disks but when I try to create a raid volume the drives do not appear. Below are three images, the first showing the first drive properties. The second image show the first step when creating a raid volume (raid 1). The third shows only the SSD and the 1TB availble to add to new volume.

       

      I've also tried to create the volume during boot sequence <ctrl I> and select both drives as Raid 1 volume.  However when doing so the drives appear as 3200Gb drives not 8Tb and when windows boots the volume is not created.

       

      Finally I'm running Intel RST Version 15.5.0.1051.

       

      I have not have difficulty creating raid volumes on this system using smaller/older drives. I'm wondering if I'm having issues because of the size or newness of the drives.
