Hate to say it, but this is nothing more than ... [drum roll] RAID, just done in software rather than hardware. And as mentioned hardware RAID is faster.
Kinda figured that out btw. Also, no way to do that "software way" w/out having an OS installed on a disc separate from the 2 SSD's. So it's basically a long road to nowhere.

Hardware RAID then is the only way to go.

Thanks.

It's amazing what a Duck can do when it just takes a moment to think.

You did ask if there was another way ???
I may have to e-mail you a can of Raid for you to play with so you can be like the rest of us ?
My Mother could not watch me all the time - I remember the first time I got my hands on a can of Raid - I have not been the sane since ?

Laugh while you can, Tweekster. I am one up-and-coming Duck. I pulled out my 2 80 Giggers, installed Win 7 64 bit with the Intel Toolbox on a spare HDD, prepared to wipe my SSD's and have the RAID setup well in beak - Never went to bed last night.

So step aside all you Wannabe's and Can'tMakeIts ...

I'm Ready to Rock and Roll!

Deja Vu: As you may recall, I had this single SSD connected to SATA 1 and set up in AHCI on my Crosshair V board.

Never mind proper setup, I kept being told that single SSD was RAID configured when it was not.

To avoid this problem in the future with my (should come today) Intel 510 120 GB SSD, what drivers should I replace?

I do not know all that have done with your computer in the past
but
I would set SATA ports 1 to 4 to AHCI in the BIOS
then
I would put the old boot SSD in SATA 1 and your new SSD in SATA 2 or 3 or 4
then
I would run Intel tool box to see what it said about your new SSD for starters
It being new and not having any info. on it toolbox should show it as a standard drive
I have not used Intel tool box so see the SSD thread
http://www.overclock.net/ssd/

Or if it was my computer I would set AHCI in the BIOS then I would install the new SSD only and a DVD optic and then install windows 7 on the new SSD and then add other hardware and software

If windows can not see the AHCI drive then you will have to install the AHCI driver as part of windows installation

Be sure its the AHCI driver and not the Raid driver

I have not used AHCI I only use RAID

Tweeky, it's understandable that you would be confused. My apologies!

For this final, final so-help-me-God, final question, forget everything I talked about with SSD problems, RAID, SSD erasure and the like. That's all taken care of for the IV board.

Now with the V board, for some strange reason, no matter what SSD, whether it be the 80 GB Intel X25M or an Intel 510 SSD, I keep getting told that my SINGLE SSD is RAID Configured.

Impossible.

I know exactly how to set up AHCI, what SATA ports to use, etc. Did all that on the IV board and never had a single problem.

This is a problem unique to the V board. For some odd reason, and I do the following "by the book":

1) Connect Single SSD on SATA #1
2) Connect only one Optical Drive on SATA 5 or 6
3) No HDD's Connected at Setup
4) SATA 1-4 set to AHCI
5) SATA 5-6 set to IDE for Optical Drives
6) After the OS/Programs are installed to the Single Attached SSD, I then connect the other HDD's, peripherals, etc. - i.e. the KISS Method (reduced number of variables).

Why then on the Crosshair V and the Crosshair V only am I told that my Single SSD is RAID Configured?

More importantly, how can I avoid this problem again - even when I am not, on this Crosshair V, trying to set up a RAID Configuration? Way back when, someone suggested that my AHCI drivers were at fault and that I should download others (if memory serves me).

(All that RAID setup is being done on another computer - the Crosshair IV - and I am now well aware how to do it. As of now, it is no longer an issue.)

What is so special about a 7th connector and all the hassles involved and conversation generated in figuring it out? Why is it there even? Why a separate controller.

My interest: I have both the IV and V boards up an running. I also have a single SSD on my V board that I cannot do maintenance on because it is in a RAID array!

It is not. But then again this is a Controller fighting another Controller, or wrong - need another Controller problem.

This is worse than more than 10 years of trying to figure out which friggin case screw to use (remember when we had so very many)
I have the same problem and I contacted ASUS and got no response for 2 months. By the time I got an e-mail asking for more details, I had solved it the same day I sent the question in.

My Asmedia Sata port was running as a stand alone port so I connected my SSD to it and then my Intel SSD Toolbox worked and I could run the trim tool and do my maintenance. I am actually running 7 SATA devices on this board but using the SSD on the Asmedia port and the others are recognized as a RAID array.

For those of your using the Intel SSD series 320 drives please be aware of a serious problem. If this error occurs you will lose your data and operating system if this is your boot drive. Intel is releasing a firmware fix within the next 2 weeks. This problem has been known for 2 months and the fix has not been released yet.

Here is a link to the Intel forum:
http://communities.intel.com/thread/...t=135&tstart=0

===============================================
Currently Being Moderated
Aug 13, 2011 9:17 PM
8/13 Update on "Bad Context 13x Error" for Intel SSD 320 Series
0Share inShare0

Status:

Intel has reproduced, identified root cause, and developed a firmware update which addresses the Bad Context 13x Error being discussed on the Communities site and elsewhere.


Response plan:

The new firmware update is in final validation testing and is targeted for release on Intel® Communities within the next two weeks. Intel takes firmware updates and issues of reliability very seriously and is taking extra steps to support a smooth release. We appreciate your patience.


What should I do if I have not experienced this issue?

To minimize occurrence, if a system requires a shut down, Intel recommends using that system’s standard power shut down sequence. As with any storage device, Intel recommends users frequently back up their data. Download and install the new firmware when it is available. As with our previous firmware updates, a secure erase is not required.


What should I do if I have experienced this issue?

If you have already experienced a drive failure or encounter this problem before the firmware update is released, please contact your Intel representative or Intel customer support (via web: www.intel.com or phone: www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/contact/phone) for an SSD replacement. An alternative option is to use the Intel ® SSD Toolbox or similar tools to perform a secure erase in order to restore the SSD to an operational state; all data will be erased. After secure erase, update your SSD with the upcoming firmware. The pending firmware update will not recover user data.


Background:

For users unfamiliar with the issue, an Intel SSD 320 Series drive may exhibit a drive capacity of 8MB and an electronic serial # field containing a message of “BAD_CTX 0000013x†due to an unexpected power loss under specific conditions. Once this error occurs, no data on the SSD can be accessed and the user cannot write to or read from the SSD.


Rgds,

Scott
