I bought 2 Lenovo thinkstation E31 and I want to set up
RAID 1 on them.
I added a hard drive for each. I went in the BIOS and set it to
RAID then I pressed
ctrl-l to start the raid manager but it disappear after 2 seconds. I don't know if it's because Windows 7 is already installed but in the user manual it says that the
RAID will only works for windows 7 users so I installed it first with the lenovo partition.
I read on forums that setting
RAID formats the disk but I got the secret partition and I don't wanna lose it. Also, in windows 7 when I go in computer, I don't see the second hard drive and the Intel hard driver manager pops up saying I got an another drive ready.
From that, I can set the
RAID but will it be a software
RAID? I would prefer a hardware
RAID cause it's faster.
Does anyone can explain how I could get the hardware RAID or why the
ctrl-l windows doesn't work.
