The B120i doesn't support mixed mode. All the devices need ot be either setup as RAID or as AHCI SATA. You will need to create a second array for the additional drive

Thank You for speedy replay, 

Is possible create a new array whith only 1 device ? And more plus important, the creation a new array whit only 1 drive is not dangerous for the array existent now in production ? Of course during the installation of a new array I stop all the activity for all the users.

More thanks.

Re: HP smart array b120i

You can create a RAID0 on a single drive (on the fly).

If the disk fails, the data is gone.


Hope this helps!
