You connect the HDs, then set up the BIOS SATA to RAID. Power off, power on. Then you set up the RAID at BIOS level. After the RAID is enabled, at BIOS bootup, you'll see the prompt to press key stokes to enter the RAID setup utility. For most Intel RAID controller, the key combination is CTR+G. When inside the RAID setup utility, you can set up the RAID array.
Get a copy of the board technical document. You can download it from Intel website. Then it should have the instruction to set up the board.....
Thanks for the guide sir.i test & get back to u
1. i connected 500gb seagate sata hdd on sata0 port & 4tb seagate sata hdd on sata1 port on intel S5000VSA server board.

kindly guide me. i m struggling for past 1week.my board is S5000VSA having 3gb/s sata ports 6nos
Please do not duplicate posts. This is answer at other thread...
You may want to disable the Quiet Boot option in BIOS under the Main tab. With the onboard controller you should be able to get a CTRL+E prompt to enter the RAID BIOS.
I noticed that the second drive is a 4TB drive. The onboard solution is not offering support for drives larger than 2TB. You might want to remove this drive and compare results. In any case, remove them both and see if you can see the RAID BIOS prompt.
You cannot enter the RAID BIOS if no drives are detected but at least we can see if the controller is attempting to initialize or not.
thanks for your support.
1. first i will do the bios setup as per your guidelines.then i will check for ctr+E option is dispaying.
2. then i will connect WD hard disk (500gb)--2nos model:WD5000AZRX(6GB/S model) for raid connectivity.then i get back to u.
