3 HDD's, RAID0 Array not detected.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, receltly I've bought my self a pair of WD1002FXEA HDD's to run in RAID0 mode this is my first setup of RAID and I guess I did something wrong, I'll make the description simple:

Aparently the System is equipped with 3 HDD's
1 x SATA 3G, 500GB - Running in IDE, Main Partition with OS
2 x SATA 6G, 1TB - Running in RAID Mode
BIOS Storage config:
SATA 6Gbps
SATA Ports 1-4 RAID(#1 & #3 - RAID0 Array)
SATA Porta 5-6 IDE (#6 - OS Drive)

- The OS has been configured to allow for RAID mode discs (no BSOD's).
- Created an array of those Hard drives, 2TB in total, Array is detected in the RAID driver configuration tool, and in BIOS as 1 Logical Drive.

When entering windows 7 to try and create the partitions out of the new storage, the drive ain't present in the configuration tool (diskmgmt.msc), any ideas of what went wrong ?

I'm assuming you have installed the driver for your RAID controller?

Installed it just now, still not detected, the driver gives me the same message.

Edit
I've honestly no idea what to do, BIOS detects the hard drive, windows doesn't, I've installed the drivers from the Crosshair IV cd, still nothing.

From the manual it seems like the RAID drivers can be only installed during the OS Setup, is there any other way ?

Download the latest drivers. Since you installed from CD I bet there are newer drivers out there. From my experience the only time you have to load RAID controller drivers during installation is if you plan to install the OS on a logical drive in a RAID configuration.

Resolved the issue, Installed windows on the RAID array and copied the data back.
