Don't have a clue... sorry... I will do some research, but you may need to contact Asrock.

Found this... it doesn't show the RAID setup section either... http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/4853/asrock_z75_pro3_intel_z75_motherboard_review/index12.html

Owners club here > http://www.overclock.net/t/1254599/official-asrock-z77-discussion-owners-club/1460_20 Maybe one of them can help.


Also found this: ftp://66.226.78.21/manual/raid/Z75%20Pro3/IntelRapidStorage/English.pdf

The above doc talks about using Control I to get into the RAID setup..... but the review I posted above states that this board doesn't have the Intel Rapid Storage Technology. I is confuzed! rolleyes.gif

+++++++++++++++++++++++

Ok.. Main Manual : ftp://66.226.78.21/manual/Z75%20Pro3.pdf

what connecters are your drives on... it shows only two connectors that are SATA 3 compatible with RAID capability:





If the drives are only on the SATA 2 connectors... the system may not show the IRST prompt as it is not needed..

I think u found my problem....

My hdd's are sata 2 on the two sata3 ports , which the board detects the hdd's not sata 3 and makes raid incapable? But sata 3 is backwards capable.

I am stunned n confused.

I was thinking of picking this up.

I also found that CSM needs to be disabled, and raid enabled, and reinstall of OS and instead of using GPT partition table I need MBR, which gpt is not compatible with csm I think.

Yup, I changed the drives I want to the two sata3 ports, still no luck.

Your board's Z75 chipset supports RAID, as well as your ASRock board: http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z75%20Pro3/?cat=Specifications

The IRST option entry in the UEFI/BIOS on ASRock 7-series boards only appears when CSM is disabled, and is meant for use only with a true UEFI booting Windows installation with Ultra Fast boot enabled, since that configuration does not allow the Ctrl i POST option to work. You cannot use that option by toggling CSM between enabled and disabled, configuring a RAID array, and then installing Windows with CSM enabled.

All that does NOT mean that the standard Ctrl I Intel RAID utility does not exist or cannot be used with a standard CSM enabled system.

What type of keyboard are you using, and how is it connected to the board? If you have not installed an OS yet, and are using a wireless keyboard, it will not work, or if a wired USB keyboard is connected to a USB 3.0 port.

If you are in RAID mode and enter Ctrl i during POST, the RAID utility should be displayed. In the BIOS, on the Boot screen, do you have "Full Screen Logo" enabled, and also "AddOn ROM Display" enabled? If not, that may be stopping the RAID utility from being displayed. Fast Boot should also be disabled.

The use of SATA II drives on SATA III ports does nothing to disable RAID.

If you have already installed an OS with the SATA mode not set to RAID, you cannot just change to RAID mode.
