hi there
i jst got a 870a-g54 and 2 samsung f4 2tb drives. i want to set up a raid 0 with them. so i went into the bios, and changed the raid mode from ide to raid, and i pressed f10 and rebooted. thing is, when it reboots, no raid prompt shows and instead it says no bootable media, please restart. i also have the latest bios as well http://www.msi.com/product/mb/870A-G54.html#/?div=BIOS .

What ports are they plugged into?

It should say in the mobo manual, but I think RAIDed drives (in the 3GB/s port) need to be between ports 1-4.

I could be completely wrong though.

And make sure that your BIOS is saving the results. I assume that you are booting from your SSD, but remember that you will have to format for RAIDed drives.

MBR has a partition size limit. I'm guessing you converted it to a GPT disk?
