Configuring SATA RAID devices

This section describes how to use the Intel Matrix Storage Manager option ROM Configuration utility to
set up and manage SATA RAID volumes.
The following SATA RAID configurations are supported on this workstation:
Up to the workstation-specific maximum number of internal SATA hard disk drives and eSATA
drives (if you use an optional eSATA bulkhead cable)
Intel Matrix Storage Manager (IMSM) for Windows
If only a single HDD is attached, the Intel Matrix Storage Manager option ROM does not execute.
Associated messages are not displayed.
The Intel SATA AHCI BIOS executes when you select RAID+AHCI for the SATA emulation mode. This
BIOS is only used to support serial-attached optical drives.
This section does not apply to configuring SATA RAID in the Linux environment. For Linux SATA RAID,
refer to the Software RAID in Linux Workstations section in the HP Workstations for Linux User Guide

Attaching SATA HDDs

Attach the required minimum number of SATA hard drives for the desired RAID level:
RAID 0: two or more hard drives
RAID 1: only two hard drives
