If you have an existing “RAID Ready” system, then you can use the following
steps to perform a migration from a single non-RAID configuration to a two drive
RAID 0, RAID 1 configuration or three drive RAID 5 configuration. To prepare for
this, you will need another SATA / SATAII hard drive with a capacity equal to or
greater than that currently being used as the source hard drive.
1. Physically attach one additional SATA / SATAII hard drive to the SATAII port not
being used. Note the serial number of the hard drive already in the system; you
will use this to select it as the source hard drive when initiating the migration.
2. Boot Windows
®
, install the Intel(R) Matrix Storage Manager software, if not
already installed, using the setup package obtained from a CD-ROM or from the
Internet. This will install the necessary Intel Storage Utility and start menu links.
3. Open the Intel Storage Utility from the Start Menu and select “Create RAID
volume from Existing Hard Drive” from the Actions menu. This will activate the
Create RAID volume from Existing Hard Drive Wizard. Click through the dialogs
as prompted. It’s important to understand what will occur during the migration
process because any data on the destination hard drive will be lost.
4. Once the migration is complete, reboot the system. If you migrated to a RAID 0
volume, use Disk Management from within Windows
®
in order to partition and
format the empty space created when the two hard drive capacities are
combined. You may also use third-party software to extend any existing
partitions within the RAID volume.
Select the driver to install according to the mode you choose and the OS you
install. You may select: "Intel(R) ICH8R/ICH9R SATA RAID Controller (Desktop -
Windows XP)" for Windows
®
XP or "Intel(R) ICH8R/ICH9R SATA RAID Controller
(Desktop - Windows XP64)" for Windows
®
XP 64-bit.
5. Finish the Windows
®
installation and install all necessary drivers.
6. Install the Intel(R) Matrix Storage Manager software via the CD-ROM included
with your motherboard or after downloading it from the Internet. This will add
the Intel(R) Matrix Storage Console which can be used to manage the RAID
configuration.
7. After setting up a “RAID Ready” system as the above steps, you can follow the
procedures of the next section to migrate the system to RAID 0, RAID 1 or RAID
5.
