    Setting sector size on ICH10DO

    The_Assimilator

      I recently purchased 4 2TB Seagate drives for use in a 6TB RAID-5 array. I am running Windows XP 32-bit, which can only recognise drives up to 2TB in size using the default sector size of 512 bytes, so I intended to create the array and specify its logical sector size as 4KB which would allow expansion to 16TB in theory.

       

      Unfortunately I can't find an option to specify this in the Intel RAID BIOS or the RST management console. After I create the array I can expand the "Advanced" option and see that the settings "Physical sector size" and "Logical sector size" are both set to 512 bytes, but I need a way to set "Logical sector size" to 4KB during array creation. Is there a way to do this?
