When I move to my new house I could build a bigger array for media adding one more 1.5TB drive. Build a second array on RAID 5 with 3 drives for the security cameras and leave one hot spare.
The big raid 6 array would be better for bigger vacations when I need more recording time. I'll think about it. I didn't want to do that just because my first option on keeping everything apart, media and CCTV.

I think this is hardcore config
If you switch to MPEG-4 - it would be only 1.12TB per month

Thanx, i just downgraded yesterday from 0074 LSI to DELL 0052.

Haven't restored the array yet, so i just may try the 0066 version from LSI.

Yes but, would it matter at all?

Just got my perc 5i set up with 4x hitachi 1tb in RAID 5, im getting CRAPPY results in HD tune, min max reads around 132 MB/s.

What are the optimum settings i need to configure to have my raid 5 array running at max speeds? My current speeds are like those i had on my Nvidia raid...

do you have a battery, and are you using write-back caching? Also what stripe size do you have?

Hey PERC people, I have an issue that I cannot seem to get past. My Windows 7 install refuses to recognize my vdisk. I can boot to any Linux distro and see it just fine, and write to it and see the data across reboots, and life is good. As soon as I boot into Windows, it gives me a Error Code 10 and refuses to start. Running the Win 7 installer will allow me to install the driver, and then still no recognized vdisk. I have tried with Dell and LSI firmware/drivers in all 4 combos, and no joy. Any idea what it could be? I have an XFX 680i LT SLI board, Radeon 5770 in the primary PCI-E x16 slot, the PERC in the other PCI-E x16 slot. I originally got the "Option ROM" error, but disabling my nForce onboard ethernet got rid of that. Not really sure what else to do. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Also, edit: I have restored all BIOS defaults and all timings/voltages/clock multipliers are at their safe, stock levels.

When you boot Linux (or go into the BIOS) does all your RAM show up? You might benefit from doing the pinmod (although it doesn't sound like this is the case - just throwing it out there).

I would start by swapping the PERC and gpu over.

Also can you run any other Windows installation? Are you having a problem with Windows installation, or can you boot Windows when the PERC is not present? Are you trying to boot from the PERC itself?

Yes, Win 7 and Linux both show a full 8GB. Both are x64.

I will give it a shot.

Already did that, no joy.

I can try an XP disc, but then I need to get into the floppy emulation driver crap.... and my main issue is I want to run Win 7 so that probably wouldn't be much help anyway. Eventually I want to boot from the PERC, yes. I have 6x 146GB 15K SAS disks that I have in a RAID-10 that would be more than spacious enough for everything I have on my local disks.

can you install to a SATA disk without the PERC present, boot and update Windows, then take an image and restore it to the PERC/drives?

Also try without the onboard RAID active. Might still be an Option ROM problem.

Tried disabling RAID and disabling all SATA onboard. Still no luck. I am going to try imaging it with Clonezilla and see what happens. Thanks again!
