Issue migrating existing RAID array

Hello,

I am migrating (2) Western Digital - Black 1TB Drives in RAID-1 from Asus - P7P55D-E PRO to Asus Z370-A. Obviously do not want to lose the data. They are not OS drives.

I have the new build together. I set RST in the BIOS. And under PCH Storage Configuration I created a new volume with the two drives.

Windows 10 is recognizing the drives in Device Manager and in the Intel RST Utility. However, the array is not showing as a drive.

I did the Initialize and Verify in the Intel RST utility. Reboot. Still not there.

I went into Windows Disk Management and from there had the option to "Initialize Disk" which I assume will make the drive usable. I selected MBR as it seemed to be the more widely used option and I am not dealing with huge drive sizes. After that I only had the option to create a Simple Volume. Which I did and now when I try to access it, I am told I need to format it in order to use it.

I'm stuck. What am I missing here?

I was able to fix the MBR using CHKDSK x: /f. This allowed me to get access to both of the drives and the data is all intact.

I tried to create a Raid 1 Array within RST using both drives and taking contents from the drive on Port 3. I am getting the following error: 0xA001005D

What is my best option to get the Raid 1 repaired?

Hi sherm22,

 

 

I understand you are trying to create RAID 1 but you are getting a blue screen. Let me help you on this matter.

 

 

I would like to confirm if this problem remains after installing the latest Intel® Rapid Storage version 15.9

Let me know your findings

Yes, the issue persists after upgrading to 15.9.

Screenshot and System Report attached.

After the error it says the volume is created. But it is not.

Hi sherm22,

 

 

Thank you for the update.

 

 

I have not been able to get the same error message, I tried to replicate this issue, the only difference was that I created the RAID 1 from the RAID BIOS.

 

Have you tried recreating the array within CTRL I option? This will create the array from scratch.

 

 

Regards,

 

Allan J.

I have not tried re-creating the array from BIOS as there is information I want to keep and I am not pushing my luck any farther than I already have.

I have ordered a 1TB drive to backup the data to. I will then try to re-create the array from BIOS.
