A simplistic way to look at it is, it’s a raid 10, but uses an odd number of drives. Discussion threads can be closed at any time at our discretion. Show less Show more. Further I did remove the small yellow battery but no dice. Tried fiddling with the raid manager from within windows. In windows you will only ever see the logical drive that is created from the raid array, I am going to assume you created a raid 5 array, which is going to be the size of 2 drives added together, you loose one of the drives, for the redundancy.

OK therein lies the first problem – I thought that the serveraid prog was booting from disc as this ctrl i function came about at dseries time i re-seated the raid card and inserted the newly burnt disc.

For reference it daes from and has the yellow battery and the black box on it. However, don’t worry about xxeries yet. It is a RAID 5 yes. I am happy to buy the replacement card as these are cheap as chips on ebay.

Intel Xeon 2 GHz. Thanks again Graham RE: So if you have 3 drives, you will only see the size of 2 drives, the 3rd is lost for redundancy. We reviewed a lot of laptops in No ratings or reviews yet. Ctrl-I gets you into the firmware on the raid card, it’s referred to as mini-config due to the minimal options given. However, this has now thrown up some other issues as a consequence of my lack of experience I think.
However, I cannot get around the fact that the logical drive is set to 50 odd gig and still cannot see the other drives in windows.
It will show you if they have been formed into an array or not. Further I did remove the small yellow battery but no dice. That’s the lowest price to date on this powerhouse portable.

Tried fiddling with the raid manager from within windows. It’s always fun to get a call at midnight to go replace a hard drive in a box 70 miles away, and you have to go that night because they have a 4 hour contract, even though they have xsedies hot spare in the array.
Thanks Graham PS It only seems that I have the functionality to do any of this stuff from the program within windows and not through the dos type app which is used when alt I is pressed – it seems that the drive structure is predetermined before windows is installed and obviously fiddling around with the structure from within Windows causes errors. None of that will help you learn about arrays or logical drives though.

However, rather than wade through tonnes of literature I am firstly in search of a quick answer here: I assume that the battery fault is causing the issue. Laptops by Dan Ackerman 10 days ago.
