    Cannot create RAID array - S5000PSL + SROMBSAS18E


      Hello folks,


      I've been struggling to create a simple RAID0 array using the SROMBSAS18E controller. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but as far as I can see the RAID controllers utility is missing a menu, that I need to create the array.


      I've attached two 750GB SATA disks to the controller. Both are recognized by the controller. I've also formatted them from the controllers POST utility, but still with no luck.


      See the attached picture "disks" for the disks and the "menu" for the layout of my RAID menu. If you compare the "menu" with the "missing menu" you will see that I'm missing the "RAID Properties".


      Any ideas as to why?


      The controller does not have any HW RAID Activation key installed nor any RAM. Im under the impression that RAM is only needed when using the HW key?


      Thank you in advance.
