Hi All,

After doing a windows 7 (64bit) update and a system reboot I lost all bios settings.
I reload the bios settings and I booted and all worked except my Intel Onboard RAID.

I forgot to set the RAID option in the bios. So I went in the bios, set the raid and rebooted.

BUT, now two of the 4 discs report as not part of the raid, it seems like windows
during the boot did tough the discs so they are not recognized as part of the raid.

Does anyone know a solution to this? Help is highly appriciated.

Have you installed Intel Rapid Storage Technology in to W7? You can use that to rebuild your RAID volumes.

Indeed I did, but how do I rebuild the raid?
It gives two disks as recognized raid volumes, and it says two disks are non-raid.
Both non raid disks have no context menu or anything of that kind.

Is there an option in software that I missed maybe?

Thanks for your help.

If the 2 HDDs recognized as RAID are each a member of a different volume, go to the managment tab, and you should be able to rebuild the volumes to the two non-RAID HDDs.
