There is an option in BIOS for raid, is it any different from RAID in windows?

What drives are you trying to raid?

 

Motherboard raid is normally pretty bad, so id use software raid in stead, just storage spaces instead in windows.

Raiding partitions isn't a great idea.

 

Id just put both drives in storage spaces in windows and make one big volume with both drive. It will let you use the full 3tb combined capacity.

 

Motherboard raid isn't hardware raid.

I thought raiding whole drive would slow it down? and data might get lost easier?

You have backups incase something happens to a drive. RAID isn't a backup.

 

This would make it so both drives show up a one big volume.

 

What is your goal here?

Mainly to increase speed of drive

So a hdd raid is still gonna be slow, so get a ssd if you want it fast.

 

But storage spaces will make it faster if you want that, but having mismatched drive sizes aren't helping you here. Just setup collumns in storage spaces to get the max speed

set NumberOfColumns when making the storage spaces drive to 2(your number of drives). You need to do this in power shell, but it will look like this 

 

New-VirtualDisk -FriendlyName $SpaceName  -StoragePoolFriendlyName $StoragePool -NumberOfColumns 2 -ProvisioningType Thin -ResiliencySettingName Single -Size 500GB

It makes the virtual drive in storage spaces.

 

If you want it simple just leave the drives seprate, the speed increase will be pretty small.
