  • Raid 0 issue on windows 7.

    I've run into an odd problem. I've installed windows 7 onto my 128gb SSD, with Raid mode enabled on Bios. I have two 500gb HDDs in raid 0, that were created before windows install. Windows install detected the raid just fine, when I was given the option of where to install Windows. However, when I finally got onto windows, I cannot see the raid 0 partition. I can only see my SSD (C) and System Reserved (F).

    When I go under the disk drives category in device manager, I can see my Raid 0 drives listed, as well as my SSD. However, under My computer, I cannot access the Raid 0 drives.

    I have installed all of my mother boards latest drivers, and the raid setup is detected in the Bios.

    I am using a gigabyte z77x-ud4h motherboard. When installing windows, I loaded Raid drivers. I got an error message saying it could not install the drivers the first time I tried. But when I tried again, it said it had worked.

    I've plugged both of my Raid 0 hard drives into sata 3gbs ports. And my SSD is plugged into a sata 6gbs port.

    Any suggestions?

    Make sure the Intel storage drivers are installed for your chipset, specially the ones dealing with RAID. Otherwise, Windows 7 won't be able to see those drives because the generic drivers probably aren't doing the trick.

    Also are these drives formatted and partitioned already?

      Yes they are.

      After hours of digging through various tech support forums, I found the answer. You have to go under Computer management/ Storage/ Disk management. Then initialize the drive(s).

        Ah, I was about to say that next. Looks like you found your solution already. :)
