2.1 RAID configurations
Please refer to your motherboard’s user manual for details on the actual supported RAID
If you want to install a Windows® operating system to a hard disk drive included in a RAID
set, you have to create a RAID driver disk and load the RAID driver during OS installation.
Refer to section 1.2 Creating a RAID driver disk for details.
2.1.1 RAID definitions
Volume provides the ability to link-together storage from one or several disks, regardless
RAIDABLE arrays (also known as RAID Ready) are a special type of Volume (JBOD) that
allows the user to add more storage space or create a redundant array after a system is
installed. RAIDABLE arrays are created using Option ROM, UEFI, or rcadm.
The ability to create RAIDABLE arrays may vary per system.

parallel, interleaved stacks. Two hard disks perform the same work as a single drive but at a
sustained data transfer rate, double that of a single disk alone, thus improving data access
and storage. Use of two new identical hard disk drives is required for this setup.
RAID 1 (Data mirroring) copies and maintains an identical image of data from one drive to
a second drive. If one drive fails, the disk array management software directs all applications
to the surviving drive as it contains a complete copy of the data in the other drive. This RAID
Use two new drives or use an existing drive and a new drive for this setup. The new drive
RAID 10 is data striping and data mirroring combined without parity (redundancy data)
drive and three new drives for this setup.
