    It look as you created 2 RAID volumes with 1 disk member in each of them instead of one volume with the 2 disks.

    This was the purpose of my message. I suspect I made a mistake but I do not know where. I shall try to find out. It should be somewhere in the BIOS.

    When you create the RAID 0 volume you need to add add the 2 SSD drives to it.
    That will earse any contant you already have on them I believe.

    You need to recreate your RAID array in the RAID configuration utility as the others have pointed out.

    In BIOS "SATA Port0-3 Native Mode" should be set to Enabled. Don't put your DVD-Rom on Ports SATA Port0-3.

    I recommend using:
    Intel RST Driver Files for F6 Install
    3/23/2010 Version 9.6.0.1014
    http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Sear...ntel%c2%ae+RST

    When Windows 7 installation starts, in lower left corner of the screen click Add Drivers.
    You can add BOTH the AHCI driver and the ICH10R Raid Drivers from a freshly formatted floppy disk that you put the Intel RST Driver Files on.

    You can run the main Intel RST setup after Windows 7 is installed.

    Yes, delete both arrays you made from the RAID ROM page.

    Then when you create a new array be sure to select both SSD disks to create the RAID array from. You should also enable Native Mode in the BIOS.

    If you want to make it easier, if you remove your third hard drive when you go to create the array both SSD disks will automatically be chosen for you.

    I followed all suggestions and everything works fine. Concerning Intel Rapid Storage Technology (Version 9.6.0.1014), I installed it after Win 7 installation. And during Win 7 installation, I added no drivers and encountered no problems.
    Many many thanks from rainy Switzerland.
