  • Additional Non-RAID Sata Drive on a RAID-0 Setup

    hi,

    i was trying to add another SATA drive (on SATA-0) to my existing RAID-0 setup but XP can't detect it.

    it can be seen in BIOS though and XP Setup CD can detect it.
    i wonder what's wrong.

    hope you can shed some light. thanks!

    try booting off a linux livecd and see if the alternative OS can see it.

    Have you tried going into disk management and rescanning?

      What drives have you used for you RAID-0 setup, IDE or SATA?

        diskmgmt doesn't show the drive. devmgmt only shows the RAID controller (which is PERC 5/i). this is dell precision 490 model btw.

        it's three SAS drives.

          Have you tried connecting it to the SAS controller (SAS Port) directly if available?
          Alternatively, can you double check if the SATA/AHCI drivers have been loaded. If not there should be an option in the BIOS to use AHCI in compatibilty mode (Or similar).

            1. If you have SAS drives in the array, you will not be able to add a SATA drive to the same array. What you need to do is create another raid0 LV with a single disk in it - the new one.
            2. If your SATA drive is not recognised by the controller, first update the controller bios. If that doesn't help, it is possible you need an interposer card (call Dell to get one)
            3. In general terms, to grow a raid0 LV on a PERC5/i controller, you need to go into the configuration of the controller, into the LV you want to expand, and find the "reconfigure" option. This will kick off a wizard that will guide you through the rest of the procedure

              hi guys,

              sorry for the late reply. got my hands full on something.

              anyway, i was not really adding the add'l SATA drive on the array but rather i'm trying to connect it on the onboard SATA port.

              will there be a conflict with this setup?

                shouldn't be a conflict, unless the port is disabled or non functional

                  exactly my thoughts. BIOS shows it as Enabled (SATA-0; tried in SATA-1 as well). Windows setup detects it (via CD). Still, Windows can't see it

                    Daft question but are you loading the drivers for the SATA???

                    Windows XP won't have the PERC5 controller drivers.

                      hi,

                      the SATA drive is not connected to the PERC/5i controller. it is connected directly to the motherboard. the controller handles the SAS Raid-0 drives.

                        Sorry seen the PERC controller and tought they were connected to that.

                        So how is your SATA setup in the BIOS???

                        Have you loaded the SATA drivers into Windows.
