raid 1. RST ROM 10.1.0.1008
RST software 12.x
only if the original failed drive (which does detect) is hooked up, does the option to rebuild appear.
if a replacement drive is added, no option to rebuild, in ROM or Windows.
installed RST software v 15.x and that option did appear but did not work.
what is going on, and how do i replace a failed drive in a raid 1?
Please try using this Intel® RST version https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/22194/Intel-Rapid-Storage-Technology-Intel-RST-RAID-Driver... Download Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) RAID Driver. Once installed, I would recommend configuring your disk to non-RAID from Ctrl-I, and then create the volume in Windows. Do not create the volume from Ctrl-I because you might lose all your data. Use this guide; http://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/chipsets/imsm/sb/irst_user_guide.pdf http://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/chipsets/imsm/sb/irst_user_guide.pdf, in order to create the volume in Windows, see content 8 "Converting RAID-Ready to Full RAID".
Let me know how it goes.
when i attach the replacement drive, it is already configured as non-raid. or do you mean configure the main drive as non-raid?
configuring the main drive as non-raid, then restoring the partition info, the drive boots. in windows there is no option to create a raid.
The replacement drive should be all unallocated, and please unallocate around 50MB in the hard drive that contains information, then try one more try.
