Hi all, I wonder if anyone has any knowledge or expertise on the following?
I'm using the Gigabyte z77m-d3h mobo a 250GB HDD with windows 7 on, a 2TB HDD and 2 x 120GB OCZ Agility 3 SSD's. I want to create a RAID-0 volume of the two SSD's and install the OS on it.
I went into the BIOS and changed the SATA controller from IDE to RAID (AHCI was the other option), used Ctrl+I to enter the RAID config and created a RAID-0 volume. Now however, the only boot options are the RAID-0 volume or the DVD drive, the other two SATA drives are not recognised.
Is there a way I can have RAID-0 on the 2 SSD's and still use the other SATA drives?
If I buy a RAID PCI-e card will this work? Most cards I’ve seen (like the one below), are PCI-e x2, does this defeat the point as I won’t get the full SATA 3 speed?
