    Create RAID1 from Existing Data

    Jeff Klaus

      I have to admit I am a little shocked by this....

       

      I have a machine where both RAID1 disks were reset to NON-RAID. 

      • In CTRL-I when I try and re-create the RAID mirror it tells me I will lose all data.
      • I CAN create a mirror IF I can get into Windows and use the Intel RST GUI?

       

      A million years ago when we installed Promise controllers, this was second nature.  Create the volume in the Bios and reboot.  Problem solved.  When our service manager told me this, I made him prove it.  He did.  After creating the volume in CTRL-I the machine would no longer boot and the data is gone.
      Somehow after 5 or 6 years of using Intel Matrix / RST devices I just now notice this?
      Thoughts?
