Hello!

Long story short.

I created RAID0 with 2x HD320GJ Samsung HDDs in Z77 switched to RAID mode. After rebooting windows BSODed(probably some drivers missing) so I switched back to AHCI mode -but- I forgot to reset those disks to non-RAID mode during the reboot process. So, after booting into OS, I found that despite being in AHCI mode, the RAID0 volume I created is still operational. It can be formatted, read/wite into it etc. Strangely, some programs show RAID volume - others show two independent disks.

Is that a normal property of Z77? I always thought that RAID arrays can only work when the chipset is switched to RAID mode.

Intel control software detecting 2 disks:

I searched the net, but didn't found anything helpful.

Thanks in advance for any posts that will explain to me that strange behavior.
