  5. Main Menu
  6. Then select Virtual Drive Management
  7. Confirm no RAID is configured with "error not found".
  8. Go back to LSI MegaRAID Configuration Utility 
  9. Main Menu
  10. Then Configuration Management
  11. Create Virtual Drive

  12. Change RAID0 to RAID6
    Note: If you do not see RAID6 you either don't have the license for it or it isn't compatible with your system. Instead configure for RAID5
