Edit: Youre not gonna believe it (I didnt either) but it just booted. Well. As long as it works Im happy. Thanks for the support!

I was happy too early. I was using it and the Intel Rapid Storage program showed a notification one drive was failing. I was in the middle of instelling drivers when it BSOD again (different one, about corruption). I dont know what is going on. I am not using the sata cables that game with the mothrrboard but some I bought and used without a problem..

I think IRST is tellin' you whats going on.

I now this is elementary, but are you sure you have the correct RAID drivers loaded.? If I were you, I would get the mobo manual out and read-up on RAID installations. It happened to me one time a while back. Good luck! thumb.gif

Also check if the 2 ssd's have the same (better last) firmware on them!

I doubt it. The disk has only 10 terabytes. That means it isnt even at 5% of its life.. Samsung Magician (on a different PC) reported the drive was in good condition.

After Windows installation the RAID drivers is the first thing I install.. I have no optical drive so I can't use the cd.. I read the manual (which gave false information) but couldnt find a solution.

Yes they do, thanks for the tip anyway.


The Intel Rapid Storage app gives me the following error:
Unknown disk on controller 255, Port unknown: Missing

It also reports one of the drives as 0GB in the RAID array.

Edit: I found something weird.. There is one SATA drive in the list which is 112 GB big (just as big as half the array). Could there be something funky with the controller? This is the missing drive that should be in the array..

sp. if the drive is recognized in bios and CAN pair up in a raid 0, then drops out, assuming it is not a firmware TLER problem, the drive is either failing, the connection interrupts and it TLERs, or the board/cpu are the cause. The simplest way to test this is to load windows onto one of the drive but set bios to raid - ACHI is a subset of RAID. Do not make a raid 0. Leave both drives connected. once windows is loaded sucessfully and all chipset, INtel MEI and IRST are loaded, image the OS install. back out and now pair the raid, restore the image to the raid 0 just created. You wil need a 3rd drive, or external storage for trhe windows image to go on. thumb.gif

That is a very good idea! I already installed Windows on one SSD. I checked disk management and the other one didnt show up.. But it does in the bios. I checked device manager and there is an unknown device with the hardware id: SCSI\Disk____________________________ which leads me to believe that is the SSD.. Is it bricked or something? Maybe I should take this to the 840 EVO thread.

if you are on an ASUS board, enter bios, nav to the tools section, (dissconnect the good drive with the OS on it, just in case) and do a secure format on the problem drive. shut down. reconnect the good OS drive and boot to windows. Rt click on the PC icon ion the desktop, Manage Computer. Drive tools... if it is there, partition as a normal drive. is it now showing up in windows desk top? if not, last thing to try is a dos window and diskpart.

Asus,

I was very excited for the ROG VIII Formula back in December:

I'd like to ask that if you implement RGB in future boards, you ensure tight tolerances for color reproduction. I find the "RGB" implementation on my Formula to be unacceptable. Most of the colors can not be reproduced without another color showing up to spoil the look. I do not have this issue with my other RGB products.

I've owned and enjoyed a lot of your products over the past 6 years. The Formula seemed like the freedom to build with whatever color scheme a person could want. It's still that, but only with the "RGB" off.

Rt click on the PC icon ion the desktop, Manage Computer. Drive tools... if it is there, partition as a normal drive. is it now showing up in windows desk top? if not, last thing to try is a dos window and diskpart.

I tried secure erase and even cleaned both drives with diskpart but to no avail. I suspect the motherboard because it started after swapping mobos.
Also, first I had an Raid menu in the UEFI but now I have a splash screen before startup?

The splash screen is normal with a raid enabled (cntrl-i to enter the raid utility). If you have tried the things suggested, last thing to try is to break the raid in the cntrl-i utility. let it redo the raid, and load windows onto the newly created raid. If that fails, you can always RMA the MB. thumb.gif
