logical drive not recognized by fdisk

I had 2 of these 6500 with Smart Raid 431 controllers using 4.3 gig drives. The 1st system worked fine but several drives dropped out of the raid, finally the raid was stable. The 2nd system works fine through the configuration of the logical drive but fdisk says "no fixed disks available" yet the logical drive exists. I have ran the bios upgrade from the net 2x plus I have removed all but the bare min # of drives x3 but still, cannot partition....please help!!!

Re: logical drive not recognized by fdisk

Check the PL6500 bios date - there were a couple of issues related to disks that were resolved with the p11 6/2/2000 rom image. It's downloadable as 14128.exe from www.compaq.com/support/files/server
