Trouble installing non bootable raid Tags: NAS / RAID SATA Storage Last response: March 13, 2011 3:16 PM in Storage Share thegooddieyoung March 13, 2011 12:36:09 PM I've got a brand new build that i just finished. While I've built many computers over my lifetime - I've never gotten into raid before. My new system is a p67a-gd65 msi board with a 2600k sandy bridge chip. System is working fine. I hooked up only one HD (65G Crucial SSD) in SATA 0 and installed windows 7. After install I put a 1g HD on sata 6 - again all is normal. After getting my system to this level, I decided it was time to install the raid. I installed matching HD's to sata 2 and sata 3. Connected all cables and rebooted. Entered raid setup for the intel raid controller and configured these two drives as a raid1 volume. Rebooted the system, windows begins to load and then blue screens and reboots computer. I remove the raid and all is well. Anyone have any hints More about : trouble installing bootable raid thegooddieyoung March 13, 2011 3:16:17 PM FIgured this out myself, thought I"d leave a note here for any ppl with a similar issue. I installed windows with my sata controllers set to ide vs achi. Used the MS hotfix, it automatically installed the achi drivers and I did not have to re-install windows.
