I seem to only be able to add 1 VD with the aforementioned card. After the first VD is created, the available space is shown correctly, but I have no way to access it. The only options I have are to initialize or delete the single VD I was able to create. Is that all I can o with this card/BIOS?
The PERC can definitely create multiple virtual disks, so some more information wouldn't hurt.
- server model?
- how many and what size drives?
- what raid setup are you trying to create?
Note: you can't boot to a 2TB+ virtual disk (any computer using a BIOS has this limit).

It is a PowerEdge 2900 with 8 X 750GB SATA HDD's. I want to create a 20GB VD for the OS (RHEL 4.5), and the balance as one big ol' drive, all RAID 0. And the bios limit is why I want to create the smaller VD. Just can't seem to figure out how. :(
