Just tried loading the intel raid driver during the pre-install and a clean installation of the system.
But why windows loads fine in the second try and won't for the first.
So, I'll test without my raid and just with a ssd and for the last test I will do by redoing the array if the error vanishes.
Hmmm, this is interesting, you are experiencing a lame annoying bug
, The bios file is okay, i checked it when i created it and i also extracted all of the modules once again to verify that i didn't mix things up, and i didn't.
If it was a case of a malfunction bios file, then windows shouldn’t have start on 2nd go, this thing complicated everything ..., are you using a clean windows or is it the same windows setup that you had before the bios flash ? maybe there's a driver error or something there ? i once had a really nasty bug related to gigabyte usb boost driver that gave bsod on windows start randomly with out any pattern.
When you say “2nd attempt” do you mean like you are powering up your rig, get bsod, press reset and then it works? In that case it remind a voltageish issue, are you overclocking? if so then how? auto/manual ? you should also try to disable everything on your mb (bluetooth, igpu, etc) and see if this changes something.
Which bsod are you getting ? do you have a minidump ? which other info can you share about your annoying bug (sorry, its not really your bug, its just a figure of speech
) ? It's always something small and simple in the end haha
What's the size of your hd's of gaming ? and how much of data do they have on them ? , I know that this may not be the right time but why are you using raid 0 ? I love raid 1 but i never use 0 because it is too unstable and can cause huge data corruption even with tiny things such as power blackouts, do you know that you can use an extra ssd as cache drive and get ssd like performance from your hds without raid 0 ?
I, myself, don't even trust NTFS to hold my important data, i use linux ext4 on a separate linux machine just for that. I added 2 Intel lan cards to the onboard atheros and team the lans so they work together as 1 virtual lan card. Maybe you should rethink of your storage setup ? since apparently there are some bizarre bugs that makes your whole raid concept a bit complicated, giving to fact that intel doesn't do their work well this time... I have a good friend who is senior in intel... I will tell him to send an angry email to the crew who code this oprom haha
