Help with a RAID config

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello good people of LTT

 

So, a quick question, I want to introduce a RAID 1 array to my machine for redundancy but I seem to be running into a snag.  I have Windows 10 installed on my 960 EVO and created the RAID 1 volume in my UEFI, but Windows keeps giving me a "boot drive not accessable" BSOD. 

 

I've already tried forcing the next boot to be in safe mode in windows before enabling RAID but the error still comes. 

 

Any idea?

there are 2 sets of sata ports on your motherboard, one is connected to the cpu the other is connected to the chipset. move the hard drives onto the other set of sata ports and try again, if you look at this image, there are 2 sets of ports

Another question from me, did you install windows 10 after creating the raid, or afterwards?

 

If afterwards it is no surprise that you get this.

 

In worst case you could have erased your main drive doing it after the installation, because the board uses the empty drive as primary drive then mirrors it onto the secondary giving you a fresh empty system.


2 Main Systems (mine and my late wifes): AsRock Fatal1ty Z77 Pro, Core I5 3570k @4300, 16 GB Ram DDR3 2133, some SSD, and a 2 TB HDD each, Gainward Phantom 760GTX. (one of those got a Gainward Phoenix GS 1060 if I had waited only a month longer ^^) 

 

On the Road: Acer Aspire 5 Model A515-51G-54FD, Intel Core i5 7200U, 8 GB DDR4 Ram, 120 GB SSD, 1 TB HDD, Intel CPU GFX and Nvidia MX 150, Full HD IPS display

(Abit Fatal1ty FP9 IN SLI, C2Duo E8400, 6 GB Ram DDR2 800, far too less diskspace, Gainward Phantom 560 GTX broken need fixing)

don't use raid 1 here, use backups. There much better at keeping your data safe.

With intel, there are no sata connected to the cpu.

 

 

ah, is that only with AMD? My B

only with ryzen and newer.

 

All other platforms are running sata off the chipset. The os drive stick is bs, you can use any port. you can't run mobo raid between a intel/amd chipset and a third party one if the board added one.

 

You shouldn't be running raid on the motherboard anyways, it sucks. Use software raid for most uses.

 

For this use use backups instead much better.

After, but I know my windows drive is fine. Just a simple switch back to AHCI and I'm back in windows.

then you need to infuse the raid drivers into windows, and change some registry settings before booting the next time.

 

Don't have them at hand, but google helps =)

because your using a different driver to access the drives, you can load the kernel just fine, but it can't access the root volume.

 

Why do you need raid1, use backups.
