SATA -> RAID must be done before prior to installing the OS with any RAID now or in the future, and on X79 I only recommend SATA -> RAID to insure the Intel RSTE drivers install properly. In my case I duh simply forgot because I use a single SSD for boot and RAID 1 HDD for data; forget after the fact!
First, I set the RAM to XMP and made certain the RAM and CPU were stable i.e. Memtest. Next, if you want to install ANY RAID then Intel SATA -> RAID, save and exit. Hold the Ctrl + I to access the Intel Rapid Storage Enterprise ... SATA ROM. For RAID 0 I recommend a 128K Stripe, then save the RAID configuration through ... will erase dialogue.
Only connect the boot (RAID) drives, and unplug all other SATA ports.
