Gigabyte GA -P55M-UD2 MB boot drive with raid 1 array Tags: New Build NAS / RAID Boot Systems Last response: December 10, 2009 4:26 PM in Systems Share felix1215 December 10, 2009 3:00:55 AM I am trying, without success, to set up an SSD boot drive containing the O/S plus programs and a separate RAID1 array for data. Everything works fine with the one boot drive but the O/S will not load with the two RAID drives connected. The Hard disk Boot Priority is set correctly to boot from the SSD. I have tried all three connected to the ports controlled by the P55. I also tried the boot drive connected to the GSATA ports with the two RAID drives connected to the P55 ports and vice versa. Please help.

Ideally: USB HDD (flash memory) DVD HDD felix1215 December 10, 2009 4:26:44 PM Thanks for your reply. The SSD is SATA not USB. It is a Kensington SSDNow VSeries 64Gig. It works very well as a stand alone HDD. I will try your suggestion tonight and also look at Intel's on-line documentation for the P55. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
