Boot from RAID Controller DH77EB

Hi

I use the Intel Desktop Board for a VMware whitebox Server together with the Intel RT3WB080 Raid Controller. I installed VMware on a RAID1 Array which i created before with the RAID Controller. After rebooting i´am not possible to boot from the RAID Installation. The POST tell that no OS will be found. I can manually boot from the RAID with the boot drive selection and everything works fine.

Can somebody tell me why i´am not able to boot from the RAID Controller? Is there a Setting in the bios that i should set? I see an Option in the RAID Menu for set boot drive, but this one is already set.

Kind regards

Rico

Thanks for joining the Desktop Board community.

I understand you cannot boot from an Intel RAID controller.

At this point, please try updating motherboard BIOS to the latest version:

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?DwnldID=22825 Intel® Download Center

File name: EBH7710H.86A.0101.EB.EXE

Please check BIOS settings under Security Tab and enable or disable Expansion Card Text, then check if you are able to boot from RAID card.

If you are still experiencing issues with the Intel RAID card, please address this matter at the server community:

Hi Allen

Thank you for your reply. Everything OK now. I had to Change a Bios Setting:

- Enable UEFI Boot

Now everything works perfect.

Kind regards
