Reconfiguring storage drives into RAID volumes is an optional task. Use the BIOS RAID configuration utilities to configure RAID on the server.
You have the following options for configuring your server storage drives:
Option 1 – If you are going to install an operating system and you want to configure multiple server storage drives into one or more RAID volumes, configure the server storage drives into RAID volumes before you install the operating system.
Option 2 – If you are going to install an OS, but you do not want to configure the server storage drives into RAID volumes, refer to the OS installation instruction in the Oracle Servers X7-2 and X7-2L Operating Systems Installation Guide.
For information on creating RAID volumes after installing an operating system, refer to the Oracle X7 Series Servers Administration Guide at http://www.oracle.com/goto/x86admindiag/docs.
