Hi, I have a mobo S5520SC and four SATA hard disk hitachi 3tb HUA723030ALA640
I updated the BIOS and firmware versions to the following:
BIOS: S5500.86B.01.00.0060.09092011 1354 Build Date: 9 September 09,2011
In the BIOS I enabled the RAID controller.
The raid controller detects four hard drives correctly and I have created two virtual disks in raid 1.
Start the installation from a CD Rom for Windows 2008 R2 64bit, using the driver software RAID SATA and SAS for Windows Intel ESRT-2 v.14.05.0727.2011 and virtual disks are detected correctly, but on all drives is reporting the error that I can not install the system even creating a new partition.
By canceling the installation and clicking again on the INSTALL button all the virtual disks are displayed correctly and the error is no longer reported.
I create a 800GB partition and start the installation.
After you install Windows startup disk management.
The virtual disks are not detected correctly, an additional disk is detected around 750GB.
What should I do to solve the problem?
p.s.: sorry for my english
Currently ESRT2 doesn't support booting from a VD larger than 2TB. Workaround is to create a small VD for OS installation, and then create a second VD for data storage using the remaining capacity. VD larger than 2TB needs to be GPT disk instead of MBR disk.
