Change RAID 0, RAID 1

I have a HP M7567c with a RAID configuration. Originally it was set up as a RAID0 (Striping). I would change in RAID1 (mirror).

I didn't find anyway to do it easily.


The windows recovery resets the RAID, so I can do RAID1?

Is there another way to do this?

Basic information

OS: windows XP Media Center Edition

HD: 2 300 g drive Raid 0

Thanks for your response



If you want to migrate from Raid 0, Raid 1, here are the steps:

1. first create a backup of your files

2. create a set of recovery disks

3. remove the existing table (Raid configuration) via Bios Raid or a GUI utility Raid (matrix of Intel or NVIDIA)

4. create a new table

5 perform the system recovery

6. restore the backup files

  • Satellite L40 - changing RAID SATA to IDE SATA


    I tried to change the option on my SATA RAID bios (that I think I have by default) to SATA IDE, but when I go into my bios, I find no option to change this aspect.
    I have a Toshiba Satellite L40 and only Linux UBUNTU 8.10 installed on my computer. I saw messages in the other Foruns where I told me to update my bios but I don't know how to do it under Ubuntu.

    Can someone help me with this solution OR give me better to change that?
    Thank you

    As far as I know, this option does not exist and update of the BIOS will not help at all. The BIOS update does not any additional installation.
    BIOS update is only possible under Windows.

    Can you please tell me why you want to change this option?

  • Qosmio G30-175: how to install Qosimo Player after changing RAID

    I noticed on my G30-175 x 2 80 GB hard drive, I had the opportunity to do RAID1 but don't want that.
    I want RAID0, I understand that I have to rebuild, said drivers on the disk that is ready to go, but I noticed that the player seems to use a small partition on the hard disk 1.
    After I changed the raid settings in the Bios I assume that that info will be lost so now, during reconstruction, which will be reinstalled from the cd rocevery aswell?

    Help me please


    You re right. Changing the settings in the BIOS RAID leads to loss of data on the hard drives.
    = RAID0 mirroring. This means that all data are saved on the first HARD disk will also be stored on the HARD drive second.

    So I guess that the Qosmio Player will be installed on the first HARD drive on a small partition.
    Do you have the Qosmio Player recovery CD?
    If Yes, then you should be able to reinstall this application.

    Note: To my knowledge the recovery CD contains only the operating system, drivers and utilities but not a Qosmio Player. So you must install it in addition form the Qosmio CD player!

  • Manage/create/change RAID running VMware host without rebooting.


    I want to know if it is possible to manage the (changing) configuration of Dell RAID controller on the host running VMware.

    For example if I add a few discs for DAS shelves storage connected to the H800 controller, I need to set up the RAID on these new disks and add the new data store in vCenter without rebooting the machine.

    Is this possible?

    My config:

    Dell PowerEdge R710 server with iDRAC 6 Enterprise
    Storage controller internal Dell PERC H700
    External storage Dell PERC H800 controller with two tablets of disc DAS
    VMware 5.5 booting from SD card
    vCenter 5.5 with Dell OpenManage integration Plugin 2

    Thanks to the open tab Integratilon manage in vCenter, I see both controllers and all discs but cannot perform any operation.

    I checked and OMIWV can monitor. You can use Openmanage Server Administrator to create new arrays from a distance. If the installation requires a reboot.

    Alternatively, you can try using the megacli for LSI controllers to create the new Raid array without rebooting.

  • Regular driver change RAID array

    I have a Dell Precision T5500 running Window 7. I want to get rid of the RAID group configuration, i.e. set up a RAID (drive) one pilot regular.  I would greatly appreciate any useful guide. Thank you.

    Hi Zqu99,

    I guess you have RAID 1 (mirroring). If so, then simply turn off RAID in the BIOS of Intel RAID (Ctrl-i) should work. I think the option is ' restore discs non-RAID '.

  • HP Elite Book 840 g1: change the RAID on AHCI on Elitebook 840 g 1

    I have an Elite book 840 g1. I'm changing to AHCI RAID and cannot get it done. I tried everything on the web regarding the registry settings and changes to the bios. Nothing has worked. Any suggestions?

    Solution to change RAID AHCI on an HP EliteBook 840g 1

    My EliteBook 840 g 1 does not have a CD/DVD drive, so I put my software available on a USB stick and this worked great.

    1. back up your PC or important documents.

    2 put the software available on CD/DVD or USB depending on one you plan to use.

    3. close all programs and restart your PC.

    -C' is where it gets difficult.

    4. enter in the Bios by pressing the ESC key

    5. make sure you change your boot order / put USB or CD/DVD first in order - depending on what you are going to use

    6. once in the BIOS go to the 'Advanced tab' and then 'Device Configurations '.

    7. go to RAID/AHCI and switch to AHCI

    8 save the settings and exit.

    -C' is where it gets trickier.

    9. THIS CRITICISM IS - after save and exit the BIOS of the PC will start start - don't let it throw - back in the BIOS before it starts

    10. once in the BIOS, go to the boot options and select the option that you put your software available.

    11. now booting from USB or CD/DVD, you have your software available on

    12. your PC will now go through the re-imaging process and when it's done, you'll be in AHCI.

    13. you can check by going to "Device Manager" > double-click on ' controllers IDE ATA/ATAPI "and below you see"Intel 8 Series Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller '.

    14. He verifies that you are in AHCI

    15 take advantage of the improved performance

    The extent of the change RAID on AHCI by using registry settings I couldn't get it work. I changed the starting value of several channels (msahci, istorA, istorV, etc.) and couldn't make the change happen. From my experience, I had to reimage my PC for that change to AHCI RAID. If someone has a proven solution, changing to AHCI RAID in registry settings without having to do a reimage would be what they please report them.  Thank you and I hope that all this information is useful.

    then I thought that I have to change RAID JBOD (page 3 of the BIOS), but it did not work
    I have confirmed with the button of 1234 - but nothing happened.

    In another task, they said to install the RAID-(pressant F6,... tout en commencer l'installation de XP) drivers
    I put the drivers on a USB - but the system will not detect it (and there is no floppy drive)

    I don't know how to install XP on this laptop.
    Any tips?


    Can you get the external floppy drive (floppy drive) and load the RAID drivers using this disc which should be connected using the USB port?

    This floppy drive, you can buy on eBay for a few euros.

  • QOSMIO G30 - RAID-1 is GRADIENT, the search for a solution


    My QOSMIO G30 is confirgured in RAID1. Today the second hard drive failed, unless I hard when I saw "RAID-1 is DEGRADING" displayed on the screen to power on the computer. Once booted Vista Ultimate, I get an error indicating that the Toshiba Raid Service had stopped unexpectedly (this message is also recorded in the system event log). "Unable to get the State raid console display."

    Go to the BIOS Setup, I see that the secondary hard drive is in the State has failed while the first is in the online state. The two hard drive are marked "RAID-1.

    I restarted after removing the second hard drive in the system. Of course, I always get the message from the bios. Vista boots normally and then I get an alarm saying the raid is broken. It's perfectly anticipated if only the second hard disk is now deleted.

    I connected the hard drive to a SATA Transcend USB controller and it work perfectly! Then I reinstalled the hard drive in the computer. After the reboot, the raid service accident again. The first hard disk is functioning stil and I made a backup full, just in case.

    I searched a lot for a procedure restoring the second hard drive operation, but I've not found anything really helpful.

    Go into the BIOS, if I change the disc to nothing else than "RAID-1" mode, I said that I have to reinstall the OS. I don't want to do that. I want to back the second hard drive in operation. I want to have the mirror restored from the first hard drive on the second hard drive, without losing the contents of your hard drive.

    Any help is appreciated.

    F. Piette

    This with changing RAID mode and install of the OS is just because when you change the RAID in the BIOS operating system must be installed again. RAID info should be saved into the MBR.
    What RAID driver and RAID utility do you use?
    One last thing: is your laptop preinstalled with recovery Toshiba (32 bit) image?

    > I want to put the second hard drive in operation.
    To be honest, one thing is not understandable to me. Are you trying to get old HDD (a second) working again or you have new HARD drive (as a second) und try to have mirrored hard drives again?
    Have two exact hard drives the same capacity?

    I try to install ubuntu on my 900 yoga 16.04. The bios can see the drive hard samsung 512 GB and cannot therefore Windows.

    The ubuntu installer can't see it at all. I think it has to do with the sata in the bios mode. Unfortuneatly there is no option to change RAID AHCI or disabled. Will there be an update of the BIOS for this in the near future?

    Then I boot linux (I can see this container as/dev/sda), run the testdisk program - it find all my partitions and save to disk. After the reboot, I see all my partitions as/dev/sda1, / dev/sda2... etc. I go up and copy all my data.

    BTW, I found 'Driver AHCI' in 'Acer R7 - 371T Driver & manual'


    So my question is whether or not I have install this driver AHCI in order to change RAID 0 set to "AHCI" defining.

    (I heard some discussion in this forum saying"ACER SERVICE CENTER"has only a few software (s) special to set installed at the factory RAID AHCI 0")

    You can try one thing, install a vanilla windows 8.1 downloaded from Microsoft, install with AHCI and UEFI BIOS, check to see if it boots.

    If this is not the case, if your system must be set to RAID and you have nothing else to try.
