[SOLVED] I think I broke my RAID array

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Asus Maximus V Gene mobo.
2x Samsung 128G SSD in RAID 0 (Windows 7)
1x OCZ Agility 3 (boot drive - Linux installed with grub boot loader)
1x Plextor M5 Pro 512GB SSD (new - data drive)

Everything was set up and running fine, but my benchmarks on the Plextor seemed a little low, so I decided to update the firmware. The firmware updater was on an .ISO image, so I burned it to a disk and rebooted. The detection program only detected the drives on the Intel controller. It turns out that Plextor recommends that you change the SATA controller mode to IDE in such cases. That didn't work, so I disconnected the drives in my RAID array, so I could connect the Plextor to the Intel controller (still in IDE mode).

The firmware update appeared to work fine, but after reconnecting everything (being careful to connect all drives back to the same SATA ports they were connected to before) and setting the SATA controller back to RAID in the BIOS, my Samsung RAID array appears to be broken. Even worse, the RAID controller won't even pop up during boot, where I can hit CTRL+I to check it or, worst case, recreate the array.

Anyone familiar with this board that can point me in the right direction in getting this straightened out? I've about accepted that I'm going to have to recreate the RAID array and re-install everything, but it's not even giving me the opportunity to reconfigure the array.

Thanks,
Q

Okaaaay. Nevermind. I updated the BIOS and the problem went away. Odd, but I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth.
