DH77EB - Unable to get RAID to work

I have installed Windows 7 Home Premium with 2 500G hard drives and wanted to setup a RAID 1 configuration. When I change the option in the BIOS to RAID, the OS does not boot and it goes straight back to POST. I have uninstalled RST and reinstalled with no success. Here is some of my system information:

Hello Tuvixcrc, this behavior could be related to the SATA mode chosen when the operating system was installed on your computer.

The SATA mode on BIOS have 3 settings, IDE, AHCI and RAID. If the OS was installed on AHCI mode, and then you changed it to RAID, the OS is not going to find the appropriate path in order to boot up.

In order to find out if that is the issue you would need to access BIOS and change the SATA mode to AHCI or IDE and try to boot to Windows.

If you change the SATA mode to RAID, you would need to change it before the installation of the operating system.

At this point, if you change the setting, you would need to do a clean installation of the OS.

Dear sylvia_intel:

Thank you so much! I did install the OS as AHCI and did not change it in the BIOS to RAID before installing the OS.

I really appreciate your answer. This was my first time doing a complete build on my own and did not know to access the BIOS and change this setting before installing the OS.

Thank you again!

Regards,

tuvixcrc
