BSOD or reboot when initialize raid
« on: September 08, 2017, 06:18:46 am »
I have made a fresh install of windows 10 on a new drive. Before this I had a raid setup with 6 DRU and 1 PPU drives that worked perfectly.
Now that I make a new install of flexraid and do the same setup as before and start initializing the raid the computer start working on it for some hours but then the computer got a blue screen of death. I tried again but the same result. I reinstalled windows 10 and flexraid, uninstalled a sata controller card and tried again, now there is not a bsod but the computer reboots, same result 2 times in a row. It seems to happen after 3 hours.

I am trying another setup now with less disks to see what will happen.

From the FlexRAID.log

This is how it looks like for around 3h.

Analyze your crash dump: http://www.osronline.com/page.cfm?name=Analyze

Likely, you have power issues for the load.

Thanks for the input.
I had a power supply that stopped working and I replaced it with a weaker one (430w) I had lying around. I suppose that the computer needs more juice when it is calculating and writing to multiple drives. Will try to get my hands on a stronger power supply and try it out.

I managed to get a pool working using only external drives that have their own power supplys.

As it worked when I did not use 3 internal drives (2 DRU and 1 ppu).
Would it be possible to remove the 2 DRUs, put them in an external case (I have a "dual disk to usb-case" lying around), assigne for example q: and r: to those drives and make a raid, thus removing power drain. After it is completed (if it works), could I put the disks back into the computer case, assign the same q: and r: and it would work?

The issue is the maintenance tasks (Verify and Validate) will have similar power requirements.
So, address the PSU issue properly.
