When set up for RAID some Qx2 drives will show up as Master Boot Record (MBR) devices when used in a different enclosure, even though they are not MBR. The reason for this is the Qx2 stores information about the disk array (RAID volume) on some of the drives. For instance, on a striped volume Drive A will show up as Master Boot Record in an individual enclosure, whereas B, C, and D show up as unformatted. On a RAID 5 volume, drives A and D will show up as Master Boot Record, whereas B and C will show as unformatted.
