Recently purchased an Asrock 79 Extreme. It comes with 4 SATA2 ports and 5 SATA3.
I wanted to setup an SSD OS drive plus 2 data drives in RAID 1 (the SSD would not be in RAID -- this is how I have configured previous machines).
The MoBo suggests keeping the boot drive in SATA3_0-1 or SATA2_0-3
SATA3_0 has the SSD and SATA3_1 and SATA3_2 have the data drives, I cannot set RAID (can't access Intel Raid setup)
SATA2_0 has the SSD and SATA3_0 and SATA3_1 have the data drives, then the SSD cannot be recognized / used as the boot drive.
Any suggestions as to how to set up the cables to make this work?
