Has anyone gotten Windows 8 to load on Nvidia nforce 650 SLI Raid? The motherboard is a P6N SLI Platinum. I've tired the windows 7 drivers, they don't even show up to install. HP had an Nvidia Nforce driver that I found. They showed up when loading additional drivers on install, but the raid was not detected.

Thanks in advance

Alan -

I was having the same issue. After installing Win8 pro, my 4TB raid1 array did not propagate. I installed the most recent nForce driver package off the Nvidia site, and even though the Bios showed the array as healthy, under the Win8 Disk Management console there was absolutely no indication of the array.

The solution was to go into the Computer Management console and configure:
Network Controllers > NVIDIA nForce RAID Controllers > then select: Update Driver

Surprisingly, even though I had an hour earlier installed the drivers from Nvidia, it was able to fetch newer (correct?) drivers from the Microsoft database and updated my system. Immediately the array propagated on my system., and was browseable.


I hope this is of some assistance to you.
