    I don't know why, but BIOS is not able to switch to more than one HDD.
    As I said in my previous message, you need to tell it which one hosts the boot sector. It assumes it is the first one by default which is a good behaviour.

    In my BIOS, I can switch the USB one but also the 3 connected SATA.

    Let's see how it goes :)

    Try to go in your BIOS and check the Hard Drive order (usually in a Boot section) to tell the BIOS which one hosts the boot sector.
    On my Asus MoBo, it looks like this

    Well, I cleared the disks with fdisk, but it was not enough for OMV, I guess.

    Solution:

    Create a raid0 with the two 250 GB.
    Pair it with the 500GB drive for a raid1.

    Done.

    I had the same issue. Following the links, I reached the procedure to fix it (but I can't set the thread as solved)

    Searching with Google for 'mdadm: RUN_ARRAY failed: Unknown error 524' finds the below links. According to them your system and kernel do some different things as usual. You need to set the default layout for the array.

    No. As you can see on the screenshot, the show as ATA (Serial ATA, actually).

    Thanks for the notice. I didn't get at first the purpose of this button. It is now clear :)

    Hello,

    I installed OMV 5.5.22-1 today.

    I have 4 disks:
    500, 250, 250 for data
    32GB for the system



    The 250GB were used disks, so I went to filesystems and cleaned them:

    This is one way, but reading the thread, all BTRFS stuff has to go through CLI. I'm not afraid, but I would prefer a GUI-compatible solution.

    I'm thinking out loud:
    - Can I use mergerfs on the two 256 then create a RAID1 with this and…

    Hello,

    I just installed my leftover system with OMV 5.5.11 on a 32GB stick.
    My initial target was a RAID1 with two 512GB disks. I ended up with 3 SSD : 256 + 256 + 512

    What would be the best way to assemble my disks to reach my goal ?

    Thanks for your help
