    Hello I just received a xserve raid and I was wondering not being a Mac user, is there any way I can hook this up to my windows pc and just use it as a massive storage device? If so can some one explain how to do it?

    Short answer: No. Your PC doesn't have fiber channel ports.

    That is an assumption but probably an accurate one. It should be possible to add a fiber channel card to his computer if it does not have one.

    Possible, yes, but almost certainly not worth the hassle. The drives that work in the XServe RAID are limited, and aging. The XServe RAID doesn't use SATA disks.
