Drive bay help


Recommended Posts

I've recently purchased a Gen 8 microserver and have done the following so far. Installed a ssd connected through the ODD port and installed Win 7 Ultimate onto it. Taken x2 WD Red hard drives from a WD Duo caddy and installed them in the Gen 8. I've setup the drives using the config utility and set them up as a raid 1 setup.


I restarted my system but don't see the drives in my computer, just the ssd shows?


Do I need to do something extra to get the drives to show? Did the fact that I removed the drives from the WD caddy without formatting them cause this problem?


Any help would be much appreciated

I've gone into drive management and had to initialize the drive. I'm not to sure what I'm doing here :)


The drive shows as unallocated... Do I just right click and select New simple volume and select a drive letter? I assume because I set up a raid 1 array before that is why only only one drive shows in windows, but in device manager it shows under drives, two of the the following " HP LOGICAL VOLUME SCSI Disk Device"


As you can tell I'm a bit out of my depth here.


If one drive shows is there any way to check the content of the mirrored drive?
