NOTE: For a RAID 10, if a single physical disk fails in each mirrored set, the redundant virtual disk goes to a Degraded
status but data is not lost. If two physical disks fail in one of the mirrored sets, the redundant virtual disk goes to a Failed
status and data is lost.

WARNING: Found virtual disks that are degraded and failed

This warning message is displayed when multiple virtual disks are in Degraded and Failed state and Pause if Degraded or Pause if
Failed are set to ON at the BIOS Configuration Utility (<Ctrl><R>).
The following message is displayed after the warning is displayed: --- Press <Enter> to continue, or <Ctrl><R> to enter setup --- .
Press <Enter> to allow the operating system to continue its boot, or press <Ctrl><R> to enter into the BIOS Configuration Utility
(<Ctrl><R>) to investigate the cause of the Degraded and Failed virtual disks.
NOTE: A boot virtual disk that is in a Failed state prevents the operating system from booting.
To investigate the cause, check for the following:
Whether the virtual disk is in Degraded status because one of the physical disks of a RAID 1 or RAID 5 virtual disk has failed, or
one of the physical disks of a RAID 10 virtual disk has failed. Press <Ctrl><R> and verify if the physical disks are offline or missing.
Remove and replace a failed physical disk. A second physical disk failure could cause a Degraded virtual disk to change to Failed
status.
Whether the virtual disk is in a Failed status because one or more of the physical disks have failed. Press <Ctrl><R> and verify if
the physical disks are offline or missing. Remove and replace the failed physical disk or disks.

Other errors appearing on the BIOS screen

S130 does not display greater than ten virtual disks in the BIOS Configuration Utility
(<CTRL><R>)
Likely Cause:
The function is not supported.
Corrective Action:
Remove all physical disks except for the last one(s) added. Then proceed with deleting the virtual disks that
are not needed. Remember to take account of the virtual disks that are currently being used.
