    Default Restoring a RAID in a Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5

    Hey Guys

    Last night I updated my BIOS (to F7)cause I'm going to buy a new DO stepping CPU and the current BIOS (F3) I had didn't support them. The update went to plan and the PC boots fine.

    The issue I'm having is: I had a RAID0 set up for my windows / game etc, after I updated the BIOS the RAID failed because the system now doesn't reconise that the second member disk. I know the disk isn't corrupt as I was gaming for a couple of hours piror to the update. Does anyone know a way that I can restore / tell the stupid Intel Raid Controller that the other disk is the member disk of the raid? I doubt this can be done but its worth a try as I really don't want to re-install almost a 1TB of games etc. Below is the screen I'm getting when I try and boot (Sorry its not great, but my laptop doesn't have the software for my DSLR)



    The top disk is meant to be the other member disk of the RAID set up.

    Thanks heaps guys

    Hello,
    All that I've heard from a german Gigabyte geek site is that if you update a bios in a raid configuration you must

    1.Save your bios config
    2.Before Bios Flash update configure bios optimized defaults config.
    2.Flash Bios with Qflash F8 from USB HDD key
    3.CLR CMOS (behind de case)
    4.Recharge optimized defaults BIOS config
    5.Config the bios best for you and activate SATA RAID/AHCI Mode to RAID
    6.Save F11
    7.Save F10 name your Bios config

    All this before a new reboot !

    Hope this helps you !
