Intended Audience

This documentation is intended for users who are experienced in configuring computer systems with new add-in cards or have had previous experience with Intel® Integrated RAID (IIR) Controllers.

Read and adhere to all warnings, cautions, and notices in this guide and the other documents in the user documentation set supplied with this product.

1.1Using the User Documentation Set

User documentation for this product is provided in four separate documents:

Installation Quick Start Poster

The Installation Quick Start Poster, or Quick Start Poster, provides a high level view of installing and configuring a RAID controller. Refer to the accompanying Software Guide for more detailed information.

Hardware Installation and User’s Guide

The Hardware Installation and User’s Guide, or Hardware Guide, covers instructions for installing an IIR controller and provides a guide to its features and specifications. For a particular IIR controller, its hardware guide documents compatible RAID adapters, supported operating systems, standard features and optional features.

Software Installation and User’s Guide

The Software Installation and User’s Guide, or Software Guide, contains:

Quick installation of the IIR controller software on a newly created bootable host drive with commonly used operating systems.

Detailed instructions covering more complex software installation scenarios for all supported operating systems.

Instructions for using the RAID Software Suite, the drivers, tools and utilities of the IIR controller.

The first part of the software guide provides an overview of RAID technology and its features. Next, the guide documents various installation procedures for an IIR controller and the RAID Software Suite, depending on the chosen OS configuration. The software guide then includes descriptions of the utilities, Storage Console (StorCon) and Storage Console Plus (StorCon+), to facilitate the configuration of the RAID subsystem. Finally, the guide provides details of all product features supported by the software and firmware For further information refer to the Optional Features section of the appropriate hardware guide since not all features are applicable to all IIR controllers.
