    Default GA-EP45-UD3P Bios Problems

    I have a new build with a GA-EP45-UD3P MOBO with 2 ea Western Digitql 640GB SATA drives. 4GB Memory, an MSI Sata CD/DVD Drive and EVGA GT 9800 Display Controller. I want to set the system up as a RAID 1. When I
    go into the Bios Main Menu and sekect the Standard CMOS Features window the IDE Channel 0 Master shows one of the Western Digital Drives, the IDE Channel 1 Master shows the other Wester Digital Drive and the IDE Channel 2 Master shows the MSI Sata CD/DVD Drive. All other IDE Channel Listings Slave & Master indicate (None). Everything seems to be working fine so I figured the next thing to do is setup the Bios for RAID 1. Following the MOBO Manual, I went to the Integrated Peripherals window in the CMOS Setup Utility changed the SATA RAID/AHCI Mode to RAID, saved it and rebooted.
    The next instruction in the manual says to get into the RAID BIOS setup utility by depressing "Control l" when requested after the Post Memory and before the operating system boot. At power on, after the Post Memory a new window appears, I started tapping "Control L" multiple times but the system ends up at the system boot disk request. Tried multiple times always the same result. Went into the BIOS into the Standard CMOS Features Window and found all the IDE Channels listed as (None). What have I missed or what should I do?

    Its Ctrl + i to get into the Intel controller bios

    What you see in Standard CMOS Features after enabling raid is normal.

    maxWedge,
    Thanks for the help. Everyone in the office looked at the manual and thought it was "Control L". I did set up the Raid Configuration based on the MOBO manual and everything went as the manual indicated. I still do not understand why, after selection of RAID, my HD drives and the CDROM SATA drive does not show up in the Standard CMOS Features windows.
