Z68a-gd65 do all drives have to be raid

I'm having a BSOD death when I set raid mode in the BIOS - I have a single Samsung SSD as the os drive and a pair of 1T drives that I want to use as raid1. I have installed drivers from CD with MB should I try downloading newer ones from MSI ?

  1. Hello Dangerstu;

    No, not all drives need to be RAID.
    I'm guessing you set up your RAID array wrong in the BIOS.
    What settings are you using?
  2. If you plan to use raid or Intels SSD acceleration cache feature, you should have the setting to RAID before installing the operating system.

    After that, even single drives will work despite being in raid mode.

    Sounds like you are getting a BSOD because you are going from lets say AHCI or IDE mode to RAID. Something windows does not always like.
  3. Thanks for the feed back.

    I had all sorts of issues getting the os to install - it kept hanging because of the keyboard being plugged in.

    The bios is set as AHCI, So is my only course of action a re install ?
  4. If you good about it, many users have just done a simple registry tweak i think.

    I have not tried this, but many report it working just fine.
