After Reinstall, WHS 2011 won't see data drives RRS feed

  • Question

  • My motherboard crashed, so I purchased and installed a new MB and processor.

    I went ahead and reinstalled WHS 2011 on the same OS drive as I used before.  In my previouse configuration, I had 10, 2TB data drives.

    Now, when I try to install the data drives, it doesn't see any of them.  I went into "Computer Management" / " Disk Management" and it sees all of the drives.  However, they're all listed as "Unknown" drives and when I try to "Initialize" them, it tells me the drive isn't connected, but it is, since if it couldn't connect, it would know that it's there.

    I have the drives hooked up through an Adaptec 5405 Raid card and a Chenbro 13601 SAS card - same as I had before.  All of this work before I decided to do a "clean install".

    Any ideas on what the issue might be?

    Thanks. Paul Carvajal

  • Have you installed drivers for your RAID HBAs?

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
