RAID drivers to use with Z170 chipset for NVMe drives?

I have a motherboard with a Z170 chipset and I have two NVMe drives. I want them to be configured as RAID1 drives.

I tried installing RSTe NVMe 4.5.0.2125, but the message was "This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software."

I tried installing RST RAID 15.2.0.1020 and the RST from the Gigabyte website (motherboard is a GA-Z170X-UD3), but when I run it there are no NVMe drives connected: https://i.imgsafe.org/de500979f8.jpg https://i.imgsafe.org/de500979f8.jpg

In Computer Management, I have two disks. Computer Management in Windows 10 shows this, but one disk has the OS, the other has the system partition: https://i.imgsafe.org/de477d4eaf.png https://i.imgsafe.org/de477d4eaf.png

How can I get these two NVMe drives into RAID1? It is no problem reinstalling windows from scratch as this is a new build.

Sounds like there was no RAID created before the Windows install.

Create the array using instructions here -- Page 39, Section C-1: http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList/Manual/mb_manual_ga-z170x-ud3_e.pdf http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList/Manual/mb_manual_ga-z170x-ud3_e.pdf

Hello OvalPiston,

 

That is a good guide to create the RAID, thanks Gize2

 

I found this one that is especially for NVME SSDs, there are some things you have to take into consideration.
