What are now the next steps to install Windows ?  Suppose this is a RAID config ?

On the TS200, you do this through BIOS Setup:

- Go to System Settings

- UEFI adapters

- Refresh adapters

- Select the RAID adapter

- follow prompts to configure RAID


Then install the OS using DVD.

- During boot, insert the DVD

Burn the ISO and boot to it by hitting F12 and selecting the optical drive as startup device from the list.
