9.6 Working with Arrays 9.6.1 Create and Format Arrays RAIDXpert2 allows the partitioning and creation of as many as eight arrays across the system’s
disks. Portions of disks can be used to create arrays, at the same time that other arrays use different
portions of the same disks.

The creation of arrays, even redundant arrays, allows users immediate
access to the arrays (unless the Zero Create option is used during the Create
Array numbers are valid only for a given boot, and can be different in the
BIOS Configuration Utility and RAIDXpert2. If a permanent label is
required, use the Array Naming feature described in Section 9.6.2, Name
Arrays, on page 103.
The array size of the new array is limited to 2.199 TB on some versions of
Windows and Linux. Refer to the operating system documentation for
details on maximum array sizes.
Number of arrays

appear to function properly, but are not supported by AMD-RAID.
When the system reboots, the creation process continues where it left off.
