Hello @delluser98676,

First, make sure you are following all this steps: How to import a “Foreign Configuration” in the RAID Controller using the System Setup Menu https://dell.to/3rAiESx.

If the error persist, you may check this article: Unable to Import or Clear Foreign Configuration on a PERC 6 Controller https://dell.to/3UM09I3

Be careful with the steps from the las article because they could completely erase the data.
