BSOD after switching to Raid in Bios

I have (3) identical WD Sata Hard Drives. One has fresh install of Windows 7 64bit on it and the other two will be used for storage in a RAID1 config.

ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 Motherboard

Sata 5 - HD with Windows 7
Sata 0 - HD wanting to setup as Raid storage
Sata 1 - HD wanting to setup as Raid storage

I went into BIOS and enabled RAID.
Exited and hit Ctrl + I to configure the Raid Drives.
I made sure to write down the Serial numbers and also knew which SATA Ports each drive was plugged into.

When I Exit the Raid Configuration screen, I receive a BSOD 0x0000007B.

This is my first time setting up RAID.

I've searched and searched online and it seems it might have to do with the Sata drivers or Raid drivers but I'm not sure what to do or how to resolve the issue.

    You have to install the SATA driver then run the Microsoft fix http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976
    and then restart and set SATA to RAID.
  2. alexoiu, you are the Mobo Master! LOL Thank you so much. That was exactly what I needed. I was reading all over the net that I might have to reinstall windows. That would have been a royal pain since I just got all of my programs, drivers etc setup. Thanks again.
  3. You're welcome. Good luck!
