Before You Begin
The BIOS RAID Configuration Utilities reside in the HBA firmware. Use this procedure under either of the following conditions:
You want to configure RAID on the intended OS installation hard drive and the server does not have Oracle System Assistant or you do not want to use it.
If you want to create a RAID volume level 5, 6, 50, or 60 using the storage drive on which you plan to install the operating system.
Note - Oracle System Assistant only supports RAID 0, 1, and 10 for the SGX-SAS6-R-INT-Z HBA.
You do not want to create a RAID volume, but the intended OS installation hard drive has not been initialized.
Refer to the instructions in the MegaRAID SAS Software User's Guide located at http://www.lsi.com/sep/Pages/oracle/sg_x_sas6-r-rem-z.aspx.
For instructions, refer to Make a RAID Volume Bootable Using the LSI WebBIOS Configuration Utility.
Note - The MegaRAID SAS Software User's Guide does not include instructions for making a virtual drive bootable.
