Thank you for the information. Apologies for the inconvenience. As you said from the behavior it seems that the build-in drivers of Windows Server Technical Preview will not work with the specific motherboard hence the RAID1 cannot work well. The OS setup recognizes the logical drive and begins install process but after it finishes the first reboot, the raid array is gone and I have to set it up again. We have here a supermicro server with 24 SATA slots. Please sign in to comment You will be able to leave a comment after signing in Sign In Now.

When it comes to the step to choose drive and I click load driver and select either one of these separate attempts of course the logical drive vanishes and the only way to get it back is to reboot and enter ctrl-e and re-create the raid.

Intel(R) ESB2 SATA RAID Controller not working out of the box
I probably should have left well enough alone and stayed on windows server but now I need to get it running. It seems like no matter what I try, the raid configuration gets wiped out.
Follow, to receive updates on this topic. Windows Server Technical Preview https: I’m want install W2k12 R2 to server based on this motherboard http: When I try a native installation from the technical preview DVD it sees the RAID1 volume that has been created 2 disk mirror but when I select it to proceed with the installation raix is an unknown error stating that it’s impossible to write to this disk.
The same installation works perfectly with R2 and the out of the box driver provided bin the install media. As you said from the behavior it seems that the build-in drivers of Windows Server Technical Preview will not work with the specific motherboard hence the RAID1 cannot work well.

The reason mentioned above will be used. An update from the previously installed R2 to the Windows Server Technical Preview also works without problem.
I couldn’t find any information on supermicro page about that.
Another challenge but can be resolved more easily is that the initial ramdisk for XenServer won’t have the necessary module, so you won’t be able to boot from it. Here is my comment: We are working on esg2 fix.
