Setting a Boot Drive

Setting a Boot Drive

Scenarios

If the operating system is installed on a raw drive, that drive must be set as the boot drive; otherwise, the operating system cannot be started.

This section introduces how to set a drive to a boot drive.

A single drive working as a boot device has a higher priority than an array.

Prerequisites

Conditions

  • The server has idle hard drives.
  • You have performed the operations in 10.3.2 .

Data

You have backed up data on the hard drive because restoring the information on a hard drive will cause data on that drive to be lost.

Procedure

Restore the target drive.

This operation will delete the array partition information and the operating system's residual partitions from the hard drive so that the hard drive can be used by the operating system.

Back up data on the hard drive since this operation will cause data losses.

  1. On the array configuration main screen, select Logical Device Configuration and press Enter.

    The array configuration main screen is displayed, as shown in Figure 10-124.

  3. In the Select drives for uninitialization area, select a hard drive by pressing the space button and the drive will appear in the Selected Drives area, as shown in Figure 10-125.

    Hard drives that have already been added to the array cannot be selected.
