    diskutil RAID issue - accident

    Hello, I was attempting to remove 1 disk from a 4 disc raid to copy the data off it and destroy the raid completely. But instead when i clicked delete, the raid was destroyed. I still have both halves of it. (Two sets of two drives with mirrored data or the striped raid). How can i tell mac os x leopard to take these two "mirror sets" and put them into a striped set? this was a raid 10 i presume something using: diskutil command createRAID mirror|stripe|concat setName format devices ... Create a new RAID set consisting of multiple disks and/or RAID sets. setName is used for both the name of the created RAID volume and the RAID set itself (as displayed in listRAID). e.g. 'diskutil createRAID stripe MyArray JHFS+ disk1 disk2 disk3 disk4'. Ownership of the affected disks is required. diskutil listRAID returns: RAID SETS --------- =============================================================================== Name: Media Files Mirror 1 Unique ID: 03978808-3337-4330-B63A-BE98C1A37E4B Type: Mirror Status: Online Size: 999860895744 B Apple RAID Version: 2 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- # Device Node UUID Status ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 0 disk4s2 7BE00D5C-9439-46DA-B67A-8B60CA26AF02 Online 1 disk0s2 22444182-6D94-47F3-8E85-F96BDE111685 Online =============================================================================== =============================================================================== Name: Media Files Mirror 2 Unique ID: 21DFF27D-0A7E-4EC5-BDF8-DB0EA2E2199C Type: Mirror Status: Online Size: 999859814400 B Apple RAID Version: 2 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- # Device Node UUID Status ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 0 disk3s2 011269DC-20B8-467C-8C72-86177923A6B4 Online 1 disk5s2 E56A9A2E-7155-47E9-A884-137779143BB8 Online =============================================================================== edit: I rebooted and disk utility is showing me this. I then clicked on one of the raid groups and made it look like the screenshot, however when i click create it wants to erase all the data, this isn't what i want. Any ideas? Thanks
  2. Hello all, I have a GA-EP45-DS3R motherboard, 8GB of ram. I switched to the JMicronATA.kext that i found here and all my issues are gone... But now...I want to activate the onboard raid to raid 5 and when i launch into Mac OS X i am getting that the drives are unreadable and to initialize them...Any ideas? The only kext i installed form here is the JMicronATA.kext so if it is as simple as installing some more let me know! Thanks!

    I just fixed this issue, simply install the driver for your specific network card for me it was a RealTek 1000 RT1000 driver from Prystar.... enjoy.
