How do I configure a hardware RAID 1 setup on an MSI 990XA-GD55 motherboard? I can set the SATA mode to RAID in the BIOS but then what? Should it be UEFI mode or legacy? How do I actually go about setting it to RAID 1? Any ideas?
i had the same board. i dont think it matters i tried both, the only difference was the look of the setup i believe, i would just stick with the uefi. and on reboot you have to hit ctrl +f to get into the raid setup. i forget the exact key combo it is on the reboot its in the manual. if it doesnt work when hitting the key combo change it to legacy. but i would run raid 0 over raid 1 haha :-)
Thanks for your reply. I changed from uefi to legacy and then got a screen on the next boot which mentioned ctrl+f. I didn't see this with uefi. Also I couldn't find anything in the manual regarding the RAID setup. Why would you chose RAID 0 over RAID 1? I am configuring RAID to hopefully prevent data loss from hard drive failure in the future, with RAID 0 if a drive breaks the data is lost...?
