    Default Raid Issues

    Ive googled and yet to find a reason hoping someone has ran across this issue

    I installed my OS (fresh) on a OCZ vertex2 SATA II SSD and its in SATA slot 04 formatted and OS installed in Raid setting in bios , checked regedit under usermachine..yada yada and its showing 0 like it should as its Raid setting under start.

    OK I erased the Plextors set them in raid via bios with the ctrl+ I and PC wont boot, Unplugged the Drives and OS booted fine then I could plug them in a they was seen in IRST everything is normal once the OS is booted and the drives plugged in

    I have boot priority set as OS drive as 1st boot then CD/DVD
    as 2nd boot

    I also tried to boot and setup the Raid in IRST which also worked fine until I rebooted the PC

    any Ideas clues ? thanks again...

    Which drives are set in RAID exactly?
    After you set RAID is the OS drive still first in boot order?
    What does won't boot mean is there any message on the screen?

    the 2 plextors are set in Raid 0 via CTRL+I in SATA0 / SATA1 slot the OCZ has OS and in SATA3 (now) , PC will not boot into windows as long as its set in Raid in the bios with Plextors plugged in but will boot fine when Plextors are unplugged / The OS drive is listed as 1st boot. and the OS was installed with Raid set in bios.
    no message on screen it will go to the post "loading Windows" in the bios screen (white writing) a small - hashmark at the top Left of the screen will Flash until you reboot. all drivers / windows etc is upto date Ive had the plextors run perfect in Raid 0 as Long as the OS is installed on the drives I have secure erased many many times,

    There's only one Plextor listed in your sig that's why asked.
    So you mean if the OS is installed on the raid0 itself it loads OK but if it;s on a different drive it doesn't?
    What BIOS version fo you have? I haven't seen any of the updates list RAID fixes but it may be worth updating to latest version.

    I now own 2 plextor Pro 256gb SSDs sorry I didn't update that in Siggy, yes as long as I set both Plextors In raid and have OS installed everything is perfect , I secure erase the SSDs and Install (fresh OS) on another SSD works perfect , UNTIL i plug in the raid 0 Plextors into Sata slot 0 & 1 , Im using Bios F7B i have tried Bios F8 same thing reverted back to F7B I find it much more stable, I have spent the last 2 days trying to sort it out and it all seems to come back to a Gigabyte Issue.
    Asus / AS Rock has no issues I have talked to many Plextor SSD / Raid users none have the Issue I have encountered.

    There is new F8 BIOS available on website, maybe you can try it: GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-P67A-UD5-B3 (rev. 1.0)
    Which SATA port you connected the Plextor SSD? Are they oin RAID0 or 1?

    as I posted before F8 bios did not work and I don't find it as stable as F7B so I reverted, the plextor SSDs are SATAIII so it would be the White Intel ports sata0 sata1 on the motherboard they(PlextorM3 Pro256gb) are in R0 Or Raid0

    Whcih SATA port you connected the OCZ SSD? Is it in the AHCI or RAID mode? If RAID, was it configure together or seperate from the 2x Plextor SSDs?

    Tried 2x HDD in RAID 0 on Intel SATA3 1/0 ports, 1x SSD on Intel SATA 2 port (Win 7 bootable SSD drive) but the system always can boot from SSD without any probl;em.
    My BIOS is F8. Which BIOS you using?
