Recovering raid on MSI X58 after windows 7 update Tags: NAS / RAID BIOS Windows 7 Storage Last response: September 27, 2010 2:06 PM in Storage Share Anonymous Windows 7 Expert September 26, 2010 6:53:12 PM 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.

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.
