Setting up a RAID 1 configuration

Jump to solution

Hello,

I have an Optiplex 9020 with a single hard drive that I would like converted to a RAID 1 configuration.

Is there any literature on how to setup a RAID 1 on these specific computers?

Thanks!

I suggest consulting the owner's manual and looking in the BIOS setup.

RAID and non-RAID on the onboard/Intel RAID controller (available only on desktop model) are not compatible, so you would have to reinstall in RAID mode.  Alternatively, you could use the OS to configure a mirror in Disk Management (if you have Windows x Professional or higher).

When you say "only on desktop", are you saying you cannot configure Raid on a Mini-Tower onboard/Intel RAID controller (OptiPlex 9020) ?

No, I meant "desktop" as opposed to the "All-In-One" version of the 9020.
