    I guess the only option is to create new virtual disk with Raid 0 with single disk as member

    Hi eXeIT,

    Leaving the customer with a non-redundant volume isn't ideal. Always make sure you have a working backup of the system before playing with the raid arrays. However, you should find you can migrate from a RAID1 to a RAID5.

    Regards,

    Hello,
     
    Sorry for the inconvenience. I have a server x3650 M2 (7947) and I added four additional disks to expand my OS, however, do not get the form to enter the RAID card to create a RAID-1. I drive damaged CD.
     
    Please, I can help, This menu is already included in the BIOS? Why or where I can access?
     
    Greetings and thanks,
