    No Create Button in iRST 11.6.1030

    Paul C

      Background:  had working ASUS P5Q-E system with Raid5 set using 3 ~700GB drives.  Decided to upgrade to 3TB drives.  When I installed the first drive (as an extra) I discovered that intel matrix storage was out of date and would not support >2TB drive, so updated to 11.6.1030, along with chipset drivers.

       

      Now 3TB drive worked ok, so copied entire original raid set to the single drive.  Then removed original raid set of drives and installed other two 3TB drives, intending to "upgrade" from single drive to a new raid 5 set.

       

      However, the iRST screen does not show any option to create an array.

       

      Only one disk has been partitioned and formatted (it is NOT full, about 2GB left).  The other two are uncommited.  The system disk is the SSD.

       

      Win7x64, P45/ICH10R chipset

       

      Here is the system report if that helps...
