    Help! - RAID5 : 2TBx5 : V10.1.0.1000 - When is it done?

    princejonn

      Hi!

       

      About 10 hours ago I started creating my raid volume (It's my first time)

       

      My specs are:

      ASUS P8H67-M PRO B3 H67 S-1155 M-ATX

      INTEL CORE I3 2100 3.10GHZ 3MB S-1155'

      CORSAIR 8GB DDR3 XMS3 INTEL I5/I7 PC10666 1333MHZ (2X4GB)

      SEAGATE BARRACUDA GREEN 2TB 5900RPM SATA/600 64MB  x 5

       

      The P8H67 uses the intel chipset V10.1.0.1000

       

      Everything is going well - or is it? I actually have no idea because there is literally no indication on whether I'm done or not.

       

      In my list of raid volumes information I have:

      ID = 0,

      Name = Volume0,

      Level = RAID5(Parity),

      Strip = 128kb,

      Size = 7.2TB,

      Status = Initialize (Yellow colour),

      Bootable = No

       

      as well as my physical devices. Their Type/Status is "Member Disk(0)" (Green colour).

       

      How do I know when it's finished? There's no percentage-indication or anything. I've read somewhere that it will be stuck in "initialize" until I start installing my OS, but how do I know it's "ready" for installation. After all, it's currently saying "Bootable = No".

       

      Thank you for your help <3
