Hi everyone, I've changed my WS case and so I've changed the data configuration too. Actually, because of my work, I'm using widely Windows 10 and for this reason I had to create a RAID 5 array on the UEFI configuration panel (on UEFI I had to switch SATA configuration from AHCI to RAID). Once I've restarted OS X Sierra on my WS, this array is not seen by the hardware. The drive on which I'm running Sierra is not connected to the SATA RAID ports on my motherboard. I've been looking around on this forum and on the Internet and it seems that RAID arrays are seen from OS X only if created with the Disk Utility Tool. Isn't there any driver or kext that is possible to load on the EFI partition in order to write and read data onto this RAID array? Thanks in advance all are gonna answer me.
Best regards
Nic
