Imaging a NVRaid array
Disk imaging utilities can interface with hard disk controllers by accessing the drive directly. However, this will bypass NVRAID in the system BIOS and cause usability problems. The System BIOS understands the disks and NVRAID array formats. In order to properly use disk imaging utilities to interact with a NVRAID volume you must ensure that the utility is operating in a mode where it does not try to directly access the drives. The utility should communicate direct with the motherboard system BIOS.
In order to use disk imaging utilities on a NVRAID volume, you must perform the following in the 3rd party utility:
1. Disable the Direct Disk Access.
2. Enable "Extended INT13" to access the disk.
