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.

Oh wow. that is a lot just get raid. I am confused now. Probably easier just to get a raid card :/, I am so angry now, I dont know what to do. all above makes no sense to me.

I am using a PS/2 kayboard, 1986 IBM mechanical connected through PS/2.

If with just two hdd's connected, no OS drive, with raid enabled, ctrl i or l dont do a thing.

I tried Full Screen Logo" enabled, and also "AddOn ROM Display" enabled, raid enabled, csm enabled and disabled, ctrl i and tried ctrl l, nothing happens.

@The use of SATA II drives on SATA III ports does nothing to disable RAID. [good news]

@If you have already installed an OS with the SATA mode not set to RAID, you cannot just change to RAID mode. [my os boots up though with raid or ahci enabled without any problems.]

I'm so frustrated now, I dont know what to dowith this thing.

old days it was hit of two keys and raid pops up.

Reason for the raid is just for two hdd's to be mirrored for storage.

I got it guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok what I did was, don't know if it gparted made a difference. Used gparted, converted from gpt to mbr partition table on both HDD's.

Shutdown, cleared cmos, booted up, went into UEFI, loaded UEFI defaults, [set my ram to 1.5v as recommended "unrelated"], made sure the lowest capacity drive was on sata3 port 0 and highest capacity drive was on sata3 port1, enabled raid in UEFI, BAM I got the ctrl-i intel raid bios screen.

DONE!!!!!!


Thanks to all who tried to help. And hope this helps anyone that had my same technical difficulties.

Also, my OS boots up just fine on any of the sata2 ports.

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Edit:

ALso, I converted my raid1 hdd's to gpt in windows then to NTFS.

Thanks bud!

I think fully, clearing cmos and loading uefi defaults did it. Truthfully, but I inserted everything I've done as explained.
