I discovered how to get to BIOS on the laptop. <esc> very early in the
power process brings up a menu. F10 gets in to BIOS.
One item, OROM UI <enable/disable> was disabled. Enabling this flashes
a menu for 2 sec on boot that allows <ctrl-I> to get into the raid ROM
I see the ability to create/delete raid volume and reset to non-raid.
The disk/volume information is
ID Name Level Strip Size Status Bootable
0 RAID-0 RAID0(Stripe) 32KB 1.1TB Normal Yes
Port Device Model Serial Size Type/Statue(Vol ID)
0 Toshiba MK6461GS 61ABD08TB 596.1GB Member Disk(0)
1 Toshiba MK6461GS 61ABD08SB 596.1GB Member Disk(0)
I still do not understand which disk to install to, ad4, ad6, or, ar0?
See my earlier message containing the output of fdisk.
