RAID 0 windows won't install after 2 days

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I bought two new 2TB hard drives WD20EARS. I was really excited about that RAID 0 increasing read speeds...(it's my first time setting up raid) So I configured everything according to my MB manual but when I'm trying to install the windows it won't work. Just to make sure that it's not windows, I tried installing it on my old hard drive and it installed without a problem. I'll post some screenshots as well as the error I get at the end of the installation when my computer restarts.

Sounds like you need to install the drivers for the raid controller. Do the drives show up as an option to install windows on?

Will windows recognize all 4GB of your RAID? I know it cant boot from drives larger than 2tb, but is it different in a RAID0 setup?

When you start to install windows you need to click on Load Driver and install the RAID drivers for your motherboard. Then format the drive, set partition size if you wish, then install windows.

If you havent already go to the Gigabyte website and download the SATA RAID driver.

A drive larger than 2TB cannot be a boot drive, no matter if it's RAID or a single drive. You need a partition.

You seem to have installed drivers correctly, since Windows found the drive.

EDIT: Don't forget to set that RAID array as your boot device in BIOS.
