So I previously had two hard drives (WD5000AAKS) on SATA-0 and 1, set to RAID 0. I had them replaced and I'm adding two additional matching HDDs, and I'd like to configure all four of them to RAID 5.
Here are my questions:
After installing the two new drives, how do I locate which ports they are now on?
- I looked in the System Setup under Drives, and I see the two on SATA - 0 & 1 with RAID On.
- I see the DVD-Rom on SATA-2, and DVD RW on SATA-3
- Ports SATA-4,5, PATA-0,1, and SMART Reporting are off
Once the ports are located, how do I go about setting up the RAID 5?
- I have a basic understanding, but I just want to be sure I'm not skipping any steps.
This is a Dell Dimension XPS 710 H2C running Windows XP Media.
All four drives are clear at the moment.
Thanks in advance for any help.
