RAID 0 windows won't install after 2 days - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
so here's what my mobo manual says:
B. Configuring SATA controller mode in BIOS Setup
Turn on your computer and press <delete> to enter BIOS Setup during POST. Make sure OnChip SATA Controller is enabled. To enable RAID for the SATA3_0/1/2/3 connectors, set On-Chip SATA Type to RAID. To enable RIAD for the SATA3_4/5 connectors, set OnChip SATA Type to RAID and set OnChip SATA Port 4/5 Type to As SATA Type. To enable support for RAID 5, set OnChip SATA RAID5 Support to Enabled.

So basically my two hard drives are connected to SATA3_0 and SATA3_01, so I configured BIOS accordingly. My old hard drive with windows is connected to SATA3_4 and my dvd burner to SATA3_2 although I doubt it matters

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.
Ok I see, let me try to do that (I think I know what you mean)

Just be sure you have that array set as the boot device in BIOS and make a partition of at least 60GB to install Windows to. If you still have a problem after that tell us everything you've done and what's going on.

Hang on hang on hang on.

You've got the setup right. That's not the problem. The problem is that what you want to do won't work. You can't have a 4TB volume (which must be a GPT volume) and boot from it, because Windows can't boot from a GPT volume without an EFI BIOS, and you don't have one. (don't worry if you don't understand this bit).

You need to do 1 of 2 things:

1. Stop using RAID0 for the install, and either go back to your old drive, or just use 1 of your new disks. TBH your 2TB drives are Green versions, which makes them a very poor choice for OS drives. Your old disk would probably be faster than the RAID0 you're setting up unless it's really old.

2. Make a smaller array on those RAIDed disks (a partition won't work, you must build a smaller array). When you set up the array in the BIOS, don't use the full capacity of the drives. Best bet would be to create a ~100GB array or so first, then create a second array to use the rest of the space. When you install Windows you will see 2 available drives - one of ~90GB, the other of ~3600GB - pick the smaller one and install away.

Hope this helps - feel free to ask a question or 2 if you need it. I realise the above is a little confusing, but this post would be REALLY long if I tried to explain everything fully here. Better that you start at the beginning and ask specific questions rather than I try and work out what you do and don't understand.

I agree with the_beast.

1) You can't boot into a 4TB partition (which is what a RAID0 of 2TB drives would be) without a UEFI board (in other words, a Sandy Bridge board so far).

2) Your drives are WD Green drives. They are meant for storage use, and storage use only. They're not meant to be fast.

3) I would never, NEVER setup a RAID0 of such a large volume. If a drive gets lost, that'd be 4TB worth of potential information to lose. I don't think you'd like that too terribly much.

__________

Like he said, use your old drive as your boot drive. Maybe get a SSD for boot drive even? I'd personally say to use your two 2TB drives in a RAID1. This way, if a drive fails, you won't lose that data. Sure, you'll have only 2TB of space, but you'll have the peace of mind knowing you won't lose it all.

thanks guys, +rep
I've been away for a couple of days. Here's what I did in screenshots, before I read your posts, which I don't fully understand anyway hehe, but it seems to be working now) Please let me know.
But I don't agree that because the hard drives are green they are slow. I think the onces I bought are very fast, faster than most other hard drives. The read speed is above 200MB now. I considered buying an SSD but instead opted for 2 2TB hardrives. Price is almost the same, and in RAID, the performance is very similar while there's so much more storage...
