You need to get into bios to change the boot order. You can usually get into bios by tapping F12, esc, or whatever depending on who wrote your bios. Once you get into bios, you should see something like change boot order somewhere. If you don't know where it is then just keep scanning each page and you will find it. It will be called something "boot order". Use the directions on screen to change it to whatever drive you desire and you should be good to go. If you can't do it then write back and let me know.

I have IBM eServer with ServeRaid-7K on board controller and have 3 SCSI 73GB hard drives configured in RAID-5 array. Hard Drives are running critically low on space and I bought 3 300GB scsi Ultra320 hard...

First, buy an external storage device, at least 80GB (although it's currently difficult to find any _smaller_ size!) and make a file-by-file, folder-by-folder, backup of your 73GB of "data".

Second, buy another external storage device, and do a Google-search for "drive image freeware".
Pick one of those applications, and do a "image" backup to this second external storage device.

Third, disconnect the 3 "old" drives, carefully label them, and set them aside.

Fourth, connect the 3 "new" drives, delete the old RAID-5 array definition,
and create a new RAID-5 array definition.

Fifth, do an "image restore" from the second external storage device to the new array.

If you have any problems, all you need to do to "back-out" is to:
* disconnect the "new" drives
* reconnect the "old" drives
* delete the "new" array definition
* redefine the "old" array definition

and you're back to the "old" configuration.

Can a raid5 be expanded to include an additional disk on the dac960prl or must the raid be destroyed and re-created?


As a rule of thumb, a raid 5 array can be expanded to include additional drives. This is done during the boot process and then going into your RAID controller setup. You would then go into the RAID configuration and add the new drive to the array. This was the simplified explanation but i think you get the idea.

Things to consider,
DO NOT remove the RAID array unless you dont care about losing data.
DO NOT try to add a smaller drive than what is currently part of the array.
When possible, the new drive should be identical to the existing drives, but I have added same size, same speed more than once and it will work.
All of the drives you want as part of the array must be on the same controller.

Hope this helps,

Not getting a drive letter from Compaq SCSI RAID setup

Did you see any new drives in the disk managemen screen? To get to the disk management, hold window key down and hit 'R', then type diskmgmt.msc and hit enter.

If you do see the drive in the lower half of the screen, you need to initialize the drive either as dynamic disk or basic disk. Then you need to add a new partition and format it.

Good luck.

RAID 0 Array disappeared after reboot

I would try the hard drive on another sata controller/port to verify that the bad drive is in fact bad. If it is really bad, then no there is nothing you can do but replace the drive and recreate the array (losing all data!).

You can not 'recover' a failed RAID-0 array because there is no parity or mirror data on an extra disk like there is with the other RAID modes. This is why people recommend against using RAID-0 for important data (unless you take frequent backups): RAID-0 actually increases your likelihood of losing your data. Statistically speaking, you are multiply the failure rates of each individual drive together.

Computer doesn't see hd

hi, re: sabrent enclosure:

sort of same issues. documentation is feeble. hd powers up. red light is on.
but the new pc doesn't recognize the drive and, obvously doesn't assign a
drive letter to it.

i tried reversing the cable, changing the hard drive, using different usb port,
re-booting. still doesn't see the drive.

1. jumper settings are correct

2 i use vista, not win 2000 or xp

2 harddrive is old, from old computer

vista doesn't have 'my computer'
i can find manage disk management
can't right click becausse the drive isn't there

how do i change the hdd settings from dynamic to basic if i can't see the drive?

answers to your questions":

1. i'm running windows vista home

2 size of drive... it's old and probably fat(32) under 1g

3 i cycled through the settings
j8 jumper settings
slave, master, & single

no settings work

4. yes i heard the drive spin up

5 the led is red, not green

thx again for your efforts

Problem with new array.

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.
