    Intel S5000VSA and Windows 2008 R2


      I’m resetting an Intel S5000VSA Server with a new Hard Drive : Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM010.

      As I’ve found out with the previous installer, they only used Microsoft 2008 R2 software mirroring.

      The company Director Doesn’t want me to reload Windows from scratch. So I’m trying to match what they Had.


      My problem is, for some unknown reason. When I use Microsoft Dynamic mode for Software Mirroring (RAID 1). The Hard Drive doesn’t want to Boot past the BIOS Logo screen. When I change from Dynamic to Basic, the Server Boots in Windows 2008 R2 Server.
