Raid 0 setup

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have 2 sata 250gb in raid 0 running on my computer. I just bought a seagate 500gb. I wasnt to run this one as not raid. I connected to the computer and it doesnt even see it. My purpose is to use this one as a backup since the raid 0 is not too trustable.

is it possible?

It should be.

and where doesn't it see it? BIOS or Windows?

If it shows in BIOS, but not in Windows, you need to bring the disk online in windows.

Open 'Control Panel', go to 'Administrative Tools', then 'Computer Management', and open 'Disk Management' under 'Storage'.

The drive should be visible there. Bring it online, and create partitions and format it. Then it should be all fine.

If it's not visible in the BIOS at all, we'll have to talk again

Did you want to have something for special files, or did you want to have everything backed up--something like a RAID 0 + RAID 1?

I could be your bios set the single drive as the boot device, and it didn't try to boot from it first time because it wasn't partitioned, now it is. Try looking in your bios for hard drive boot order or something like that, you should see a listing with raid array and the model name of your single drive. Set the boot order to raid array, or move it to the top, however it works in your bios. This is in your regular pc bios not your raid bios by the way.
