I have 4x2TB disks running in a Raid 5 configuration, thus having enabled the Raid-option in Bios. Now, updating the firmware of the SSD that I have installed as well, required me to change this option to AHCI (no idea why, ask OCZ).
After flashing the SSD's firmware and reconfiguring the bios to Raid once again, my Asus onboard controller won't recognise the four disks properly anymore.
I've made a screenshot, look for yourself.
How do I get my Raid back, please help!
Edit: As you can see, the 2 drives that are "missing" do show up, just not as part of the Raid. The "Raid-Boot manager" (displays right before the windows loading screen) will mark the raid as "failed" as well.
Yes to have the raid you will have to have the controller on raid settings no getting around that. Also Yes SSD's want AHCI as it is a more advanced mode for drive control. Most will tell you to put your raid on a stand alone card to have this work well. You can make this work in raid mode just turn it back on and the SSD "SHOULD" say non member disk and you will have to select it as the first boot device to boot from it.
