Erasing RAID Configuration Data

Note: The RAID controller stores RAID configuration data on all physical disks that are part of a virtual disk. RAID configuration data must be erased on the physical disk before it can be used with another virtual disk.

1.In the Topology pane, select Physical Disk (VD 0: Default > PD

0: ST3750330MS in Figure 14) and press Enter. A menu pops-up, as shown Figure 14.

2.Select Delete to delete the virtual disk, as shown in Figure 14.

Rebuilding Virtual Disk

Note: The 2+1 SATA 6G & PATA PCI-E COMBO HOST CARD WITH RAID BIOS supports manual rebuilding of RAID 1 virtual disks. The rebuild process is both initiated and complete in the BIOS. The Marvell RAID Utility (MRU), which runs in an OS environment, cannot be used to either initiate, resume, or complete the rebuild process. Spare physical disks are not supported.

To manually rebuild a RAID 1 virtual disk

1.When a virtual disk is degraded, the Status of a virtual disk is

UGT IS602R

Page19

changed from Functional to Degrade, as shown in Figure 15.

Figure 15 Virtual Disk Properties: Degrade VD

2.Replace the faulty physical disk with an identical physical disk. Note: If an identical disk is unavailable, use a replacement physical disk or larger size or one with a slightly smaller size as determined the Gigabyte Rounding setting for the virtual disk. The 2+1 SATA 6G & PATA PCI-E COMBO HOST CARD WITH RAID detects the new physical disk and lists the device under Free Physical Disks in the Topology pane, as shown in Figure 16.
