building new server to replace a dead one using ent serv 2003. new server doesn't have floppy and when loading os I f6 when prompted but cannot load raid drivers without floppy. have floppy copied to usb drive, could use some help on how to continue.
If I currently have a two disk hardware mirror or RAID 1 can I migrate the data from them to a RAID 5 array by adding 4 more drives? Do I need all 6 drives in the array or can I make one of them hot swappable in case something goes wrong? Will it fail over automatically? I am using a Windows Server...
Is it possible to install the raid driver after you have installed windows xp. I know it says you are suppose to install before loading the OS.
