Hi,\n\nI hope someone can help me out. I'm looking for a RAID 5 (preferably\nhardware & PCIe) solution for my XPS 410. I'd like to have 1 internal +\n1 external SAS port using the internal port with a fanout cable & the\nexternal port to connect a drive array.\n\nI bought a PERC 5i card off ebay, but it doesn't work. It gives a 1 -\n3 - 2 beep code & does not post. This is the same code it gives with no\nmemory installed.\n\nI tried disabling all on board devices, turning off intel matrix rom &\nusing different RAM slots - made no difference - always the same beep\ncode & no post. Tried in 8x & 16x PCIe slots.\n\nI'm wondering if anyone has successfully added a RAID 5 solution on\nthis system & if so, what card did you use?\n\nThanks.
