Setting Up RAID+0 UEFI with Gigabyte BIOS

Hello,

I have installed 2 Western Digital Red 3TB Hard Drives. (Data not OS)

I want them to be RAID+0 utilizing Intel Rapid Storage on Windows 8.1 64.

I follow the manual:

SATA Controllers: Enabled
SATA Mode: RAID
OS Type: Windows 8
CSM Support: Never

I save and exit... as I need to get back in the BIOS and select "Intel Rapid Storage Technology".

But no post, just a blank screen every time.

So I am really lost.

I can set it up legacy (Ctrl+I) But then it wont show up in my Intel Rapid Storage Software, like my SSD does.

Gigabyte GA-Z87X-D3H
Intel Core i7 4770K Stock
Mushkin 16GB DDR3-1600
Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 480GB
2x WD RED 3TB (Recognized in disk management and error free)
Asus GTX650 Ti 1GB

Any help would be appreciated,

Thank you!

    Gigabyte lists this software as compatible.
    Intel® Rapid Storage Technology driver - Version 12.8.0.1016 - Size 0.43 MB

    Intel® Rapid Storage Technology program - Version 12.8.0.1016 - Size 14.04 MB

    Format the 3TB drives with GUID Partition Table (GPT). Don't use the (Cntrl & I) RAID Utlity, use the main Windows based Intel RST program to make the RAID array.
