XPEnology Hard Drive Issue

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am needing help with an issue i have run into after building my XPEnology box. I have 6 SATA drives in my box, 2 show up as SATA in the BIOS and 4 show up as AHCI in the BIOS. When i am trying to create a new volume in DSM i am only seeing the 4 SATA hard drives that show up as AHCI. Can someone explain how i can get all 6 drives to work with XPEnology?

 

Parts List

Lian LI PC-Q25B

ASRock FM2A85X-ITX

AMD A4-5300

Corsair ValueSelect 4GB

6 HGST Deskstar NAS 3.5 4TB Hard Drives

 

 

Thanks

I am not sure if Xpenology is just not mounting the other two drives or not. But if someone could explain how to look for this and how to mount the drives that would be helpful.

 

Thanks

I did try and change the two drive to AHCI but it would not allow me to change them. What is odd is when i was using this same setup as a Freenas box it could see all 6 drives just fine.

If these 2 disk act as a raid you must create a volume on the mainboard raid controller and than the volume will be visible as drive in xpenology.

 

Raid = create raid on MB use the volume in DSM

AHCI = DSM control's all
