good call on this. when adding any new disks/arrays your motherboard Hard Disk Boot Order will need to be checked. The new RAID5 setup should show up in the BIOS under something like "Hard Disk Boot Order" as a new "SCSI disk" and will probably need to be placed below the raptors in order for the OS to boot from the raptors.

well i come back wit some answers...

i do what you told me and there is no few VDs on the board bios,he see only

the PERC as he is.the bios board categoris him in the hard drive list,but i

cant choose the VDs that he control them.this is my BIG problem.

Inside the PERC bios i can choose bootable VD and i do so but i dont see

changes from this section.

I am wait for your replay

tahnks.

I need help expanding my Raid 5 array. I have 7*1.5TB drives and use 5VD's (had to make them NTFS for a media streamer I owned). Now I want to add the 8th drive but I don't have a "Reconstruct" option on the LSI software and no option in the bios. What else can I do? I'm running Windows 7 64-bit
post #3584 of 7149
Can I run the LSI MegaRAID software under Hyper-V or ESXi? (is the Perc 6/i even supported under ESXi?)

I want to make sure I get e-mail alerts or notifications if the drive starts failing, etc.

Has anyone gotten the perc5/i to boot in a p5w dh deluxe? I've tried with or without the pinmod and both give the same result, post beep 1long 3short, which is supposed to indicate video card problem. I've got the videocard in the 1st (orange) pcix16 slot where it should be per the mobo manual and the perc5 in the second. everything boots right up as soon as i remove the perc card. Is there something i can change in the bios to make it work or is it just not compatible?

Are you sure that the pins are properly isolated from the PCI-E connector? If you tried nail polish chances are you accidentally rubbed it off when you inserted the card.
I have better experience with regular tape.

try the gpu in the second slot, and the PERC in the main slot.

Just recieved my BBU and HDD caddies.
8 74GB Raptors ready to rock with 512MB cache.
Probably gonna benchmark over the weekend.

Please tell me you either got a REALLY good deal on those disks, or you already owned them. Pretty much any modern disk blows them away - there are a little long in the tooth nowadays...

Anyone have any performance benchmarks with the PERC 5/i and comparable drives to the 1TB Samsung F1s on freeBSD?

dd if=/dev/zero of=ddfile2 bs=8K count=500000 (creates 4GB file in current directory)
I am getting about 150-160MB/s Write

dd if=ddfile2 of=/dev/null bs=8k
200MB/sec Read

I saw the front page of a guy getting 300MB/s plus but that was on windows using HDTune and I am not sure that is really comparable.
