    Default GA-X58A-UD3r Raid Crash in WIn7

    New Rig:
    Gigabyte GA-X58AUD3R Rev 2 FC2 Bios w/I7-950 CPU
    Gigabyte GTX-460OC 1gig Running new 260 drivers
    Muskin 12 gig (6X2) 998679R set @ 7-8-7-20 1.66V
    OCZ Vertex2 100 SSD (Boot/OS Drive)
    (2) Samsung Spinpoint F3 1T (Data Drives)
    Silver Arrow CPU Cooler, Coolermaster HAF922 case
    OCZ 600 watt supply, Windows 7 HP 64 bit

    Trying to set-up the samsung drives in a Raid 0 but when I do windows crashes. Set all the SATA ports to AHCI, not using the SATA3 ports, all drives are on the Intel ports. Used both the first XHD and second ICH Control Mode settings in the Bios and both seemed to work as I was able to create the Raid 0 during boot-up. After the windows balloons go away it blue screens. It happens so fast I can not see anything on that screen. I tried setting them up after I installed windows on the SSD and made sure I updated things and made sure everything else worked. Have not tweaked anything other than the memory settings. My first build went perfectly so what did I miss? I have reset them as non-raid and both are working fine.

    Do you have windows installed on your SSD in RAID mode before adding these disks as RAID?

    If not you need to, so you will need to go into windows and make the following registry changes first, before setting the BIOS to RAID mode, if you installed windows in AHCI or IDE mode.

    Enable switching between all IDE/AHCI/RAID modes by changing "Start" Values in these keys to 0
    Code:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Msahci\Start
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Pciide\Start  
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\iaStorV\Start
    If that does not work, I would try setting the second entry to RAID instead of the first (I always use the second one with the very first one disabled)

    A many thanks. Your wisdow is seemingly endless. It was the last entry that was not at zero it was set to 3. I did load windows first after changing the SATA's to AHCI mode during the first post. After making sure things looked OK a then tried adding the samsungs in RAID 0. Thanks again for your help.

    Yes, the raid set-up and went right into windows, no problems. Now I just need to tweak to get every last cycle out of this rig. BTW, the C300 SSD in my other rig seems much faster. I guess all that extra read speed pays off for a boot drive. In my next build I think I'll stay with the C300 SD and try the UD7 board with more Mushkin sticks. This rig with the silver arrow cooler is nice and quite and cool. Sures beat the V8 in the HAF X rig. Thanks Again.

    Nice to hear it all went smoothly!

    So you are not using C300 as your boot drive in this rig?

    C300/Mushkin/UD7 sounds like a great build man!

    The C300 went into the HAF x build along with the UD5r/I7-930/V8 cooler and the twin WD Blacks sata3 1T in Raid0. Picked up the I7-950 for only $230 and the HAF x was too tall for my home so it went to work for my Photoshop guy. After hearing all the bad posts about Marvel I thought I'd give the Vertex2 a try for the HAF 922 build. After thinking about it more and that I'm only going to use it for booting/programs I think the read speed is the most important factor for me. Hopefully I'll have a reason and $$ to build the next one soon. Thinking of trying the Corsair 600 case along with their HX-850 supply. I'll let you know when that happens.

    Sounds good!

    Let me know how you like the HX-850W, I've been looking at them lately.
