Hi, I've been trying to set up two identical Seagate Barracuda 1tb 7200 drives to run in raid 0. I have my os already installed on a different drive. I enabled raid in my Bios and set the two drives up in an array, but every time I get to the splash screen my computer crashes. I looked in my Bios and saw that all of my drives (4, two standalone and my two new seagate's) were listed as raid, even though I only put two in an array. I'm really new to all of this so I might be missing something big, am I doing this right XD?
Did you change your SATA controller mode from IDE/AHCI to RAID as part of setting up your array? Doing this will cause windows to fail to load because windows only installs the storage driver for the current mode (IDE/AHCI/RAID) enabled at OS install, and if the correct driver for the mode you are switching to isn't installed and configured before you change then windows isn't able to access the drive during boot. That's my guess anyway.
As for all your drives being listed as RAID, that's probably referring to the controller being configured in RAID mode, not because they're in a RAID array.
I did have to change the mode to Raid, but I was hoping for a workaround. A lot of people with asus and other higher end mobo's seem to be able to do it, but I haven't found a way to do it with my motherboard. Perhaps the downside of going with a low end biostar XD.
