A question for those who have set up WHS on a GA-D510 Atom motherboard. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,  I've set up WHS on my GA-D510, using an 80GB disk attached to the SATA3 controller as a non-raid disk for my SYSTEM, and a 1.5TB DATA disk attached to the other controller.

    I have now freed up another identical 80GB disk, and would like to use it to mirror my SYSTEM.  I'm happy to let WHS manage any new disks I add to the DATA pool, but my understanding is that it's not as good with duplicating the System.

    Has anyone here managed to use the raid controller on the GA-D510 to mirror up an existing disk without data loss.  I've cruised the net looking for advice on this, and come up with an embarrasing blank.

  • I think most RAID controllers require the disks to be wiped to create the array. If not, well you're in luck... and you can just setup a mirrored disk. :)

  • You'll find your RAID controller documented in your motherboard manual. If it doesn't say you can create a RAID 1 array from a pre-partitioned disk with data without wiping it, you can't.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
