If you utilize this drive previous to commencing from side to side an additional raid controller, it is likely to facilitate the other raid controller let a number of kind of "lock" as they were fraction of an array. If that is the case, you necessitate to delete the array through old controller so it determine to eliminate the "lock". I had this problem through samsung F1 1TB drives.

Re: Unable to format raid 6 disk on windows xp 64 bit

By definition, to setup a RAID array, you be "obliged" to have comprised two or additional preferably comparable drives in the system. At the BIOS level, these multiple drives are Associated in various methods into a single drive which is what the operating system observes. You not be able to convert an existing disk to a member of a RAID array without losing the entire data on the disk.
