Windows 2000 Professional will not format SuperTrak SX6000 array.
I got a strange somewhat old computer that it has a SuperTrak SX6000 card on it. I installed Windows 2000 Professional on it and everytime I try to format the "drive" corresponding to SuperTrak array, it does not complete successfully (it takes its sweet time). I tried everything. The drivers are installed, they show in the Device Manager. The drive shows with the capacity of the array but it can not be used unformatted and no formatting will succeed. I even installed the PAM utility in Windows and used it to recreate the array but, again, when I tried to format it, did not succeed.
I tried changing the OS in the card BIOS to no avail. I may be missing something basic here because I don't seem to find a way around it.

Did you make sure that your hard drive has been made into a "dynamic volume" instead to the usual "simple volume"? It has to be "dynamic" before your can put it into a RAID configuration. You will have to use your RAID Controller to create a dynamic volume or to make the hard drive part of a dynamic volume.
my guess is no but since i haven't dealt with this type of server i'm going to suggest you go to hp.
if you just goto hp.com and search on live chat and a link will come up.. they should be able to help unless it's too old since i'm not sure what generation we are on now..
Do you see your new disk in the "Disk Management" window? To get there go to "run", type "compmgmt.msc", then click disk management. If you do see the disks there, then you need to format the disk to a "basic" configuration. If your new disk/volume does not show up there, I would suggest a hard reset on your server whenever possible. I see this issue at times with Windows and newly added storage array logical drives.
