Cannot connect to Highpoint Rocketraid 2720 SGL

Hi all,

 

 

as my data nees increase, I have bought a Highpoint RocketRaid 2720 SGL (mounted on an ASUS P9X79 Motherboard), to which 8x4 TB WD RED HDD are attached. The idea is to have these disks operate in a RAID5 setup. In the process of this rebuild, I am reinstalling my Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit operating system. As one of the first things I wanted to configure the RAID, so that I can immediately transfer data and set everything up properly. However, no matter what slot I choose for the controller, I cannot seem to get past the "The connection between WebGUI and RocketRAID HBA has been interruptted, WebGUI will try to reconnect RocketRAID HBA in X second(s)." error message. is it a BIOS thing? Might be, I have downbloaded the latest BIOS from the web, but -assuming that I do not really have to make a bootable USB stick based DOS startup drive as we are in 2016 (please tell me I'm correct :-) ) - I am hoping for alternative ways. So, my questions:

 

- is there a way around the bootable USB stick way to update the bios?

- does that solve the connection issue?

 

Many thanks for your help!

 

 

Best regards from Holland

This could be nothing more than a bad breakout cable.  If I understand you correctly, you want to create a second array using SSD drives and copy the data from the 4TB drives over to the new array, correct?  Why not just use 5x480gig drives instead of 10x240?
