    Default X58A-UD3R ver 2.0 "missing OS" with FH upgrade

    used @BIOS upgrade latest online, loaded ver. FH(2M) to X58A-UD3R ver.2.0 in place of FC (1M), booted to "missing OS" , Master SSD "FAILED NOT A RAID DRIVE" can't Qflash with FF ver. (1M) "wrong file size". I7-930 processor 3.2 Ghz, two 128G SSDs, 12G kingston 1800. Managed to boot to DOS with USB and tried FLASHSPI but it comes back with "Bad file" and I'm sure it is the checksum. The FH has support for RAID ROM and I don't know if that is why the SSD fails? The drives show up in Standard CMOS fine. I am sure it was setup for RAID0 before, but with this version I don't even see any reference to RAID0, just SATA3. Optimized settings sets most everything to IDE andSATA3 enabled. If I can't get these drives to load, what drive should I buy that I can load Windows, boot and use @BIOS to flas FF ver.?

    Once you @Bios there is no going back to old-faithful...

    in the Bios, if you can see your drives, then in Integrated Peripherals the SATA is not set to RAID. Default is IDE, once you change is from IDE to RAID, save and reboot and you should be fine.

    thought I'd recommend that you "Load Optimized Defaults", then reboot, then go back in and set your drive controller to RAID then re-boot again...

    Where do you have your Drives plugged in to? blue ports of White ports?

    if it's the Blue Ports, then you want to set SATA to RAID, if you have them in the white ports, then you want to set SATA3 to RAID.

    you can't have your drives in a RAID is the controller if set to IDE or AHCI.

    I tried RAID and RAID XHD. Someone said if it booted to IDE it would lose the RAID array and have to be re-configured? I bought a new drive and reinstalled Win7, but I have kept the other drive hoptng I can get the data off it.

    No, when you initialize a RAID it creates ID's on the partition of the disk and it will always remember what disk is what. Only time that is erased is if under the RAID options you Delete Member Disk or Release RAID Disk.

    What I would do is plug in the drives, enable the RAID and then after it re-boots press CTRL-I to get in the raid config utility and see how it's reading the drives, any RAID disk should come up as a "Member Disk".

    Now you didn't specify yet but I'm assuming you were using the SATA2 Intel Controller (Blue Ports).

    Yes they are Intel SATA 2 blue ports. The new one I am using now is SATA 3, but on the blue ports. I wonder though since I configured this drive RAID with the same 2nd drive as before, will the 2nd drive still work with the first? Or is the RAID array specific to the individual drives when configured? All three drives are 120g. Whenever I booted before with the 1st drive in RAID mode it showed 1st drive NonRAID, 2nd drive Member Disk. Think there is a way to maybe connect drive through USB 3.0 adapter and recover data with an app like Recuva?

    Oh yeah. I figured out how to initialize Dual Bios by killing power to PC while Qflash was installing bios. Booted back to factory version FB, but had same results. Also, after configuring new drive and loading Windows successfully, then trying second drive again, when new drive was re-installed it came up with "missing OS" and had to be reconfigured.

    you recycled the 2nd drive? then you're pooched.. had all the original disks remain untouched, you would had been fine.
