RAID in bios, IDE in windows?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was trying to disable raid to boot windows in AHCI mode to run SMART on my raid0 hard drives too see which one of them is starting to die and to my surprise, windows would BSOD in AHCI.

Tried to change from raid to IDE and to my surprise it booted!

I have tweaked the registry in windows to enable AHCI, but this doesn't make sense to me. I thought that RAID was the same as AHCI.

By the way, I booted in raid, changed the registry variable in raid, rebooted into raid, and it still worked. So RAID is the same as IDE and AHCI? Makes even less sense to me.




By the way, is there a way to run CHKSK or something similar on each of my raid0 drives? I didn't know how to target them when I disabled raid, since they weren't mounted.
