Installing Windows 10 on a single drive with a PERC H310 RAID Controller

When Windows 10 is installed on a single hard drive in a Precision Workstation Tx600 system equipped with a PERC H310 RAID Controller, Windows 10 will not see the hard drive.


Configure the Single Hard Drive as a RAID 0 Array

You can resolve the by configuring the drive to a single drive RAID 0 array.

This is accomplished by first converting it the physical drive to a RAID disk and then configuring the virtual disk to a RAID 0 array of 1 drive.

Enter the RAID setup by pressing the CTRL + R Hotkey combination at boot.

NOTE: When working in the RAID BIOS, the keys on the numeric keypad should not be used.

You can do this by following the steps indicated below: (See Figures 1 & 2.)

  • Press the tab key once to highlight the hard drive, press the spacebar once to select the drive (See Figure 3.)

WARNING: DO NOT INITIALIZE THE DRIVE! This process unlike most in a RAID array does NOT require initialization of the drive in the RAID BIOS. Initialization of the drive will erase all the drive metadata and destroy all data on the drive.
  • Press the ESC key to exit the RAID BIOS, press the arrow key to highlight OK, press the Enter key to confirm the exit. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL key combination to restart the system.

    Start the Windows 10 installation and the drive should be seen.
