So here's the problem I'm having. I just reformatted the SSD and both Samsungs. Set the SATA mode to RAID. I created the RAID set. Then went to install windows on the SSD and it doesn't detect it. Still shows up in the BIOS and everything, but it won't show up as an option to install windows on. I set SATA mode back to AHCI and it still doesn't detect it. Not sure what to do. I know you normally want an SSD on AHCI, but then you can't have RAID active. I have the ASUS P8Z68 V-Pro MOBO by the way. Any ideas how why its not showing up?
I don't know if this could effect anything or not but this is how I have them connected:
Okay, so I tried what you said. I unplugged everything else and put the SSD on the SATA6G_1 slot. Even though it still shows up in the BIOS fine, it won't show up on the Windows install. I just right clicked on the SSD in My Computer and hit format and did the default settings. It was a "quick" format it said so I'm not sure if thats what you mean by "not a long" format.
I'm trying to install Windows 7 Professional 64bit by the way.
