Hi,

I'm trying to install SMS on a PC with 4 identical brand new SATA hard drives as software RAID, but when I run cfdisk, it sees only 1. Confused

Motherboard isn't capable of hardware RAID.

Restoring BIOS to default and changing drive settings makes no difference.

Also very strange is when I disconnect 3 random drives the cfdisk does see the 1 connected drive.

When I try ed to install Win8 I did recognize,format,R/W all 4. Confused

Please could some one give me a hint, what m I making wrong?

Hi,
when you run
"cfdisk"
is like running
"cfdisk /dev/sda"

So to partition each HDD individually you need to run cfdisk on all 4 HDDs.
Code:
EXAMPLE:

cfdisk /dev/sda
cfdisk /dev/sdb
cfdisk /dev/sdc
cfdisk /dev/sdd


Also take a look, if you haven't already, for RAID setup installations.
