BIOS issues with DG45ID board?

Jump to solution

Hello all,

I recently installed two 3TB Seagate Barracuda SATA drives to use as a data only raid 1 system.

I used Seagates disk wizard to set the drives as GPT and they show up under my computer as two single 2.7TB

drives each. They also show as two single 2.7 TB drives under the Intel Rapid Storage Technology software. Here is the issue:

When I reboot to set up the raid 1 and press ctl + i, I will start to create a raid 1 but the storage only shows 746GB. If I create the raid, will it only allow storage up to 746GB or the full 2.7TB?

Do I need to update the BIOS for it to fully except the 2.7TB? Below is my set up, if you need more information let me know.

Thank you!

Mother board: Intel DG45ID

Bios version: IDG4510H.86A.0097.2009.0428.1627

Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad, Q8200 @ 2.33GHz,

Intel 64 Achitecture. Intel G45/G43 Express.

Chip set. 4GB Ram

Windows: Vista Premium 64-bit SP2

Hello Bryan, the first thing to do is update your BIOS to the latest version available and create the RAID in Windows* using the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology.

You can find the BIOS update here:

This should work fine for you.

Regards.
