I cannot say how it was implemented on your mobo but worth a try for sure. Worst case is you do not like it and go back to what you had.

Thanks for the reply! OK, so I need to install with RST selected in the UEFI, and then use the 11.6+ RST drivers in Win7. Gotcha. thumb.gif

My 256 840 pro is on the way, so I have a question. I have two drives in raid0 that are FULL of movies and some other things so I don't want to have to clear them. Can I just pop in the SSD, format, and install windows without first uninstalling windows from my raid drives? Basically is it okay to have my old windows install sitting on my raid0 config?

^Yep. Just unplug them and any other drives so Windows doesn't put the boot info on those drives. Set the ssd as the primary boot drive as well and be sure to recoonect the raid array to the same ports (at least I think they're tied to the port).

You should be able to just delete the windows stuff from the raid array after as well to get that space back if you don't plan on booting that os again.

Thanks! I'll add that to the first post. Anyone that wants to use it can, but I won't make it a requirement for old or new club members. Totally voluntary. smile.gif

Ok thanks. I don't think they are tied to the port because I carried over my raid with a new motherboard, although the order might matter.

So, I'm trying to install Win7 on my 840 Pro SSDs in RAID0. I did so before, but using the RSTe setting in the EUFI and the driver (SATA RAID Controller) that came with my mobo on a CD. But I want TRIM support! So...

I set the UEFI to RST and am trying to install Windows 7.

However, the driver that came with the mobo no longer works. Win 7 installation can find it, but now says it is incompatible with my hardware. Fair enough, the mobo only had a RTSe setting when it shipped (I upgraded the EUFI to the current version, which offers the choice between RTS or RSTe) so I am guessing the driver is RSTe-specific (it is numbered v3.0... which matches the RSTe numbering scheme, too.)

At the ASRock web site's page for my mobo, it does have a driver package, but it seems to be an executable that I think sets up the Intel RST once Windows is already installed. I don't see any pre-installation drivers for actually setting up Win7. Does the same package contain both? Looking at the files within, it sure doesn't LOOK like it, at least.

I know more than one person here has to have done this successfully. Can you please point me to the file I need? smile.gif Or, if I am just wrong about some part of this, please let me know.

Thanks,
JML

Wow, I'm having quite the conversation with myself!

Someone please tell me if I'm wrong, but I'm thinking what I need is the "F6 floppy" drivers, even though I won't be pushing F6 or using a floppy. Looking at the names of the files in there (per Intel's wen site), they sure look more like what I was expecting.

Can I plop that badboy on a USB and use it during Win 7 installation? Will it be the right animal?

Yea, if you do not see the RAID array when you are installing the OS, then you need to load that driver from the USB or CD.

And... it worked!

I had that problem as well when I ran my OS on a raid0 array. My issue was resolved by removing other drives and removing powering and then reinserting my graphics cards.

I also still get the occassional no boot device problem and have to reinstall the graphics card before it'll boot.
