    Since each single drive is over 2TB, each drive will need to be Initialized separately as GPT rather then MBR.
    Do you have the Six 4TB drives in a NAS enclosure or are they attached to a RAID controller? if so, then they would have their own RAID control panel that you would enter from Bootup, Or you can use the Intel Storage Manager.
    Once you are in the RAID control panel, you would choose the drives and choose whatever RAID configuration you would like. With more then 2 drives you can do RAID 5 or 10 Create a RAID 10 Volume Using the Option ROM
