Hello!

I have an GA-945gzm-s2 MBR and i dont know how to switch to RAID or AHCI mode in BIOS.Can anyone help me?

I triet to instal Intel Matirx Storage but i get the following message: This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for instaling the software.

So i need to switch to AHCI mode then instal Intel Matrix Storage.

Can anyone help me? :??:

Also downloaded the Manual and it says it doesn't support RAID/AHCI, but the question is why do you want to install Intel Matrix Storage ?

very slow HDDs? won't increase the performancy anyway, i had set up 4 HDDs 80 GB in RAID 0 and they gave me the same performance of my WD 500 GB :)

You have to identify the exact chip set you have only ICH7MDH, ICH7M and the ICH7R/DH support Intel Matrix Storage. You have to press F2 to enter the BIOS.

Go to Gigabyt'es website you'll find out that it doesn't support Raid or AHCI, manual says
"Does not support RAID/AHCI (class code 0104/0106) hard disks."
"On a few motherboards based on Nvidia chipsets, BIOS update is required for Xpress Recovery2
to correctly identify RAID and SATA IDE mode. Please contact your motherboard manufacturer."
