Raid 0 Problem

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Background: I run a 60GB Vertex SSD for windows and two WD Caviar Blacks in raid 0 for everything else.


Yesterday I got through putting together the rest of my new build(basically new everything) w/ exception of drives. I started computer up entered bios, set 1-4 to raid and 5-6 to IDE. Everything booted up fine, RAID was there and was accessible. So today I re-install a clean windows 7 on the SSD. Go to boot up the comp, check bios and everything looks fine(bios see's the raid) restart and next screen is raid check screen(raid is functional and pass' test) Get to windows and no raid at all. Ive gone into the manage drives section and nothing. Its like windows does not even know it exists.

Im trying to figure out whats going on. Im running an ASUS Crosshair IV. Ive found on their site a some downloads to make a raid driver disk, but Im not exactly sure how to load them or if its even the problem.

Any idea's?

Edit: Wow...Installed the new chipset drivers which included RaidXpert which fixed the problem.

You do need to format the drives in the Manage tools to be able to use them but you should see them.

Did you upgrade the RAID drivers after everything was setup?
I upgraded my Windows RAID drivers after using my RAID with same HDD's and Windows no longer saw the drives. Reverting back to the driver I installed my RAID on in Windows fixed this for me. The array was fine.
