The PCH controller on the chipset model Z170 supports RAID 10, this means you can move your existing RAID volume without issues. This is possible if the RAID 10 is not bootable. Only storage.
I recommend backing up all the information before swapping any hardware.
Thanks Allan this is a good news. Any suggestions on the step to follow. I plan to:
1) set up my ssd with the operating system
2) link my 4 hdd. I won't care if The number of the Sata ports is not the same of the previous setup
3) set up the bios for a raid 10
It is actually the step number 3 the first one, then the rest.
Many thanks Allan, really helpful. Bye, bye
No problem, glad to help.
Hi, I'm Sorry but I need again your help.
I changed the mod and everything seems to be ok. OS win10 did work and raid10 was recognised. Unluckily system was not stable and I decided to reinstall WiN10.
I also took the chance to set the bios on Uefi replacing the previous legacy configuration.
Then I also set within the bios Intel rapid storage technology the raid10.
Now, after the boot, OS is ok and Intel rapid storage app says RaID 10 is fine but I cannot see drive in win10. When I go to the manage storage windows and ask to add the raid, it doesn't do it. What problem could there be?
I do not see any problem in regard to the Intel® Rapid Storage. I would recommend contacting your computer manufacturer or Microsoft for information about this matter.
Thanks again for your reply. I was tired to look for a solution so I deleted the volume and now everything works fine. I Recover the data from a backup.
At the end of the day, that's always the easiest way to solve this problem.
