Add RAID controller to a motherboard
Hello all !
I have a server with Intel S5000PSL motherboard and 6 hard drives like this:
a. 3 units 1 TB
b. 2 units 500 GB
c. 1 unit 80 GB
There is a Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise OS and I want to create 2 RAID massives (1 and 5 levels) from BIOS, but the motherboard do not support this. The technical reference of motherboard indicates that the motherboard support 0/1/10 levels RAID and 5 level RAID with a licence. But from BIOS I can not create any RAID, I can't see there any BIOS options to do this.
So can I add any RAID controller to this motherboard ? If yes, will I have the possibility after that to create RAID from BIOS, if I will take updates for BIOS ?
Please give me idea to create RAID in this situation !
Thanks in advance !
