How to install RAID 5 on ASUS P5Q3.
The "Intel Matrix storage manager" does not start, using "ctrl I" or "crtl l". The RAID controller and drivers are installed, and drives are connected and powered.
I can see the drives in "Administrative tools". Ant suggesting?
Did you already configure a RAID5 array after the BIOS setup? If so, you need to launch windows setup with the raid driver and install it. Before you do that, you need to have an array configured in the RAID BIOS utility setup.
I got the Asus P5Q3 board today. After a couple of hours of hair pulling, I found out why I was not seeing the Intel Matrix Storage Manager or able to use the CTRL+I.
If you look at your main board, you will see there are 8 sata ports. I had my 2 drives incorrectly to ports SATA_E1 (WHITE) and SATA_E2 (PINK). These two ports are special ports for JMicron (not sure what that really is).
