Asrock 870 Extreme 3 cannot set raid.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
This is so ridiculous that I don't know what to say anymore. Can't even google it for answers.

http://www.asrock.com/MB/download.asp?Model=870%20Extreme3&o=Win764

I have an Asrock 870 Extreme 3 w/ 2 Samsung F3 1TB. However, the system won't let me set them up as RAID.

I did went into BIOS and set SATA controller to raid. I even tested without any other SATA ports installed, but I cannot for the life of me since building this computer 4 days ago set this to RAID. I could install windows, but only on a single hard drive.

Here's the things I see.

1) Onboard Raid Option Rom Utility see ID 01 & 02, but as my SATA Primary Hard Drives.

2) When installing windows and the asrock RAID drivers, I would see 2 hard drives instead of 1 like I normally would.

3) I did test out SATA port 1 & 2, and 2 & 3. Still no success.

4) Tried formatting both drives to read 700GB each, still reading as 2 seperate hard drives.

Only one else has some bright ideas?!?! sniper.gif

Trust me, I already did. Both load to USB from CD and from ASRock's website. Both gave me the same result and got 2 seperate hard drives rather than 1 raid drive.

I did tried to install Windows to 1 regular drive, still not seeing it setup as raid. Even the AMD Raid Utility shows up as 2 seperate hard drives with no array.

Did you go into the raid setup page which shows just after posting?

You need to set it up there first before you install windows, you need to push an 'F' button like F11 or F8 to get into it..

Did you setup your drives into a raid array through the raid setup utlity just after your pc posts?
You have to set them up there before you can install windows. It will come up on screen asking you to push an 'F' button like F8 or F9.....
