Gigabyte GA -P55M-UD2 MB boot drive with raid 1 array
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.

Go to BIOS, go to Advanced BIOS Features, Hard Disk Boot Priority, set up your preferred harddisk order, ESC, set up your preferred First/Second/Third Boot Device. Ideally:
USB HDD (flash memory) DVD HDD
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.
