SSD raid 0 help
Posted 09 April 2012 - 08:54 PM
I just got two corsair force 3 90GB ssds for raid 0 on a X58 platform. I have both drives plugged into a sata II 3.0 gbps ports, and I have configured my BIOS for raid 0. The strip size is 128 kilobytes, and the created raid 0 array is bootable according to my bios.
I threw my Win 7 install disk in my pc and booted up to it with no issues. I installed Win 7 and let it expand it's files and when it asks to reboot I take out the Cd as it is rebooting. It gets to the point where it trys to go to the desktop and it just blue screens on me. After that it says there is no bootable media available. I have tried this three times now.
The only other thing that I found interesting is that it says on the first screen where it would tell you what types of drives you have, it comes up with nothing. The Raid array looks good an is recognized, but not on that page.

Even my Z68 board needed the driver disk to install with the Windows 7 SP1 media refresh install disc.

I eventually got to the point where I memorized the keyboard commands to install the drivers.

The only really frustrating thing about it is that it gets confused if you put your drives in a different order than when the image was created (which causes it to put the partitions on the wrong drives). This is only an issue if you have multiple system partitions, but it's still really annoying. The other huge annoyance is that it absolutely will not copy an image to a drive that's even 1 Byte smaller than the original drive (not the partition size, the actual physical drive size). I had to resort to a couple nasty hacks to make it work when I changed from 2x128 GB drives to 2x120 GB drives.
