    ahhh yes i forgot that on those boards it borrows bandwidth from the pci-e slots when you have usb3 and sata3 enabled,maybe thats why you were having problems,and if you use crossfire say in 16x and 16x slots it will reduce on to 8x i think if you use usb/sata3

    Nice to see you got that sorted out!

    And thanks for posting for others, I didn't know that so I'll keep it in mind in case I see anyone else later on with a similar issue using PCI card.

    Thumbs up Re: GA-P55-USB3 RAID / BIOS problem / Possible Stupid Question

    Windows 7 will not install to a RAID array greater then 2TB in size.

    When i put my 3 750GB drives in RAID0 i had to create two actual RAID arrays
    60GB for windows and the rest for data.

    My understanding is that physical disks (in this case a RAID0 array) greater then 2TB require a GPT partition table apposed to the old school MBR.

    The BIOS built into the RAID controller will not flag a GPT partitioned drive as bootable.
    Therefore the >2TB array will not show in the bios as a choice on the boot menu.
    Also if you look in the RAID bios it will say Bootable=No

    It applies to partitions, not disks, so what you are seeing is normal.
