Will my SSD be ok changing my HDD's into raid?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am using a 180g intel 520 series as my boot drive and some applications. i have two 1TB HDD's i am going to put into raid 0. i am using teh asrock extreme 4 z87 mobo.

The Mobo only has one place to change to raid. and i am worried that if i change it to raid that my SSD isnt going to boot me into windows because i dont know if the raid setting changes ALL drives to raid.

i know i have to setup the raid, but i am just being cautious.

Does anyone know if i will be ok before i go start poking around.

It's going to work you might need to change some settings in the registry i can go get you those if i Google a bit I've done a couple of days ago

Exit all Windows-based programs.
Press [Win] + R or take the RUN option from the start menu.
Now type regedit there and press Enter Key to open up the Registry Editor Window.
If you receive the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.
Locate and then click the following registry subkeys:
Code:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\msahci
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\iaStorV
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\iaStor

In the right pane, right-click Start in the Name column, and then click Modify.
In the Value data box, type 0 [3 is default], and then click OK.
On the File menu, click Exit to close Registry Editor.
Restart your computer
Go to UEFI/BIOS and enable RAID, Save & Reboot
Another restart will be required to finish the driver installation.
