I have 8 1TB Drives in my machine, set up as RAID 5 The raid controller is a 3ware 9650 SE 8LPML http://www.3ware.com/products/serial_ata2-9650.asp
I'm not sure if its important, but the mainboard is: http://www.tyan.com/product_board_detail.aspx?pid=472
As far as i know, i've configured a 6TB array - in the menu when i pressed ALT + 3 during the boot phase.
I then tried to install Windows Server 2008 on this, to no avail It said it couldn't see any drives etc... I tried a few drivers, none of them worked. All said invalid drivers.
Eventually, I gave up, and installed Windows Server 2003 x64 - which, after messing about with drivers and a usb floppy drive, went in ok.
However - i could only see the volumes in the device manager -> disk management thing, and even then, they were split into 2 or 3 chunks.... Is this something to do with converting to GPT? if so... how do i do that?
My problem is, I would really like to install Windows Server 2008 Anyone have any idea as to what driver i need? Is it a problem with my BIOS or this 3ware raid controller?
