4.7 Initialize Drives
If an installed disk does not appear in the disk selection list for creating a new array or if it
appears grayed out, you may have to initialize it before you can use it as part of an array.
Drives attached to the controller must be initialized before they can be used in an array.
===Adaptec Embedded SATA HostRAID Controller #0 Array Configuration Utility===
Prepare drives for creating arrays.
Take caution in using this option; Initialization will erase all Array
information from the selected drives. Any away using any of these
drives as members will be affected.
Use the < > and < > keys to highlight the disk you wish to Initialize and press Insert.
Repeat step 2 so that both drives to be initialized are selected.
Read the warning message and ensure that you have selected the correct disk
drives to initialize. Type Y to continue.
