I am just about finished building this new system. All that I have left to do is to take the 2 SSDs out of the old Win XP system that I am now typing on and install them in the new system. I want to install the 2 SSDs in a RAID 0 array but I cannot find how to do it. I've read the user's manual backwards and forwards and I cannot find RAID set-up instructions. I also looked into the new BIOS, but that may not be the best place since I still have the SSDs installed in my old system.

If anybody can help me, I'd really appreciate it!

Why do you want to RAID the SSD's?

I want to RAID them because they are only 90 GB each, and together, they barely meet my needs as a C:\ drive. I bought them a couple of years ago when 90 GB was a pretty large SSD. My how times change!

Thanks for your response! I found the answer to my question on MSI's website.

OS and applications on one, point your 'Libraries' at places on the other.
Done correctly, "Save" goes directly to the second drive. No RAID needed.

And since your docs are on a completely independent drive, no worries if you have to reinstall the OS.
