You have to setup RAID before you install Windows. Here is how you RAID (0,1,5,6,10)

1. Get a copy of the RAID drivers (for your motherboard, unpacked if zipped) to a removable drive (CD, thumbdrive, external HDD).

2. Set HDD storage mode in BIOS to RAID.

3. Restart the computer and hit the designated key that allows you to enter the Option ROM RAID setup (F4, F6, whatever it is after POST it should tell you on screen).

4. Setup your RAID array by picking the disks you want to use and how you want them configured, 0,1,5,6,10; 64k Stripe size if 0.

5. Reboot once the array is built and boot from your Windows disk.

6. When asked if optional RAID drivers are needed during the initial setup, provide them to Windows via your removable device.

7. Install Windows.


Without the RAID drivers, Windows cannot see the RAID array. If you have setup RAID and attempted to boot into an existing Windows installation, I do not think you can recover it as the RAID array was built on top of it. This is why you BSOD.

Since you have a separate SSD for a boot drive, I'd recommend setting the SATA controller mode to AHCI, installing Windows on the SSD, and then using the Windows Dynamic Disk features to enable software RAID 0.

Ok, I have a clean install of windows on my SSD now. Did all the optimizations. How can I get windows to "RAID" my 2 F3's now?

I have 2 1TB F3's and I set the BIOS HD Setting to RAID. I then went ahead installing windows on the 1st F3 thinking I could setup a RAID 1 after windows was installed (Which is not the case). I missed the step where I access the raid controller during startup. So now its do I completely start over and deal with reinstalling windows or just have 2x 1TB internal drives with no real backup protection (although I do have my Norton 360 set to backup 'my documents' to the 2nd drive). Id imagine you need to start up your computer and press whatever key to press to open your RAID controller and configure things in there setting your 2 F3's to Raid 1 or 0 or whatever you want. I'm not positive how you do it when you have an SSD mixed in there was well as far as the BIOS RAID settings.

If it makes you feel better I did the same thing, though I at least backed it up but now going through the hassle of installing the drivers or reinstalling windows.

I think a few people forget to mention that...lesson learned for the both of us.
