    Expander Back plain


      I’m running out of ideas I need some fresh thoughts on this issues.

      This is a new server I’m building, when the system is powered on you get the following message after the boot process reaches the RAID card.


      “All Disks From your Previous Configuration Are Gone. If This Is An unexpected Message, The Please Power Off Your System And Check Your Cables To Ensure All Disks Are Present.

      Press Any key To Continue or ‘C’ To Load The Configuration Utility.”


      If you hit the rest button at this point the server reboots and goes to the OS with no problems. Any thoughts on what might be causing this problem?

      When the drives are plugged directly in to the RAID card there are no problems.
