Question about Dell PowerEdge 1600SC Server
I have install windows server 2003. but windows dont see the other 4 hard drives in the case. But in the bios post it see it. How can i get the other drives to work??
You may have a raid 5 setup. you should be able to confirm this within the raid bios (ctrl+m). if all disks are part of the raid 5 array i believe you will only see this as one virtual disk. a raid 5 array will put the data across all the disks along with parity information. if one disk fails then when you add a replacment disk this parity is used to rebuild your array.

HI thanks for reply. i must say im new to this raid stuff. i was given the server by my coworker because he could not get the other drive to show in windows. he got fustrated and gave it to me. so i tey at home. ok here is what i have.
Dell poweredge 1600sc. it has two gig ram. I open the case andther it has one primary hdd and four other hdd connected on one ribbon to the board. it had windows server 2003 all ready on it. I was in the set up (ctrl +m) and i saw the drives say ready. i hit the space bar to set array. after i did that it say i had to initlize it before i reboot. now the drives say online. i boot into windows and the drives are still do not show. am i looking in the right place. i know. im stupid. go ahead and laugh.
plus is there a good place to lean this raid stuff. thanks. nezza
