Info on RAIDing HDDs on Intel Server Board?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
For my WHS I am planning on haveing 5TB total, But on my Intel S5000XVN/XSL I cannot figure out how to set up SATA RAID so i can have an ssd boot drive with my 5TB storage drives. Any tips on Embedded RAIDing? Does it exist for this board or will I absolutely need to buy a RAID controller.

You can't set up a RAID array on a single SSD.
You need a minimum of two identical drives.

I have the 5520scr intel board, and I have to activate the RAID option ROM in BIOS...
Then it should be a matter of pressing 'ctrl-m' i think...should tell you on screen
