Disable Gen8 B120i raid controller

Hi everyone,

I have a gen8 microserver with only one hard drive running hp custom esxi 6.5 on it. The default raid setup is 0 when one drive is in use, my question is, if I disable the raid controller in bios would that affect my current hard drive? I know that older controllers used to write some data on disks. I just want to know if I would be able to boot my esxi normally after disabling the raid and using Sata AHCI.

Thank you

Re: Disable Gen8 B120i raid controller

Hello, as your drive is already configured as RAID (0), the AHCI Mode will not e able to detect a RAID volume. So, I thing, that the ESXI will not boot up. Nevertheless you can try and see if it boots. If not, you an still set the controller back to RAID.

So its safe to disable raid and re-enable it?
That wont cause any issues to my drive?

Thank yoy
