Hello folks!

My configuration is as follows:

Operating System: Windows Server
VIA RAID Tool
ASUS P5VCD motherboard

2 SATA drives mirrored as ARRAY 0 (C:) 
2 SATA 1TB drives mirrored as ARRAY 1

I have always had the first array. BIOS sees it, VIA RAID sees it in Windows. It is the C: Drive, and everything works fine.

Just added 2 new 1TB drives as a second ARRAY. BIOS sees it, VIA RAID Tool in Windows sees it. However, I cannot assign it a drive letter.

Any thoughts on how to use these drives in windows for storage?

Thanks in advance!!!

Make note of the number of the simple volume whose drive letter you want to assign, change, or remove.


At the DISKPART prompt, type:

Select the volume, where n is the volume's number, whose drive letter you want to assign, change, or remove.
