First im a computer hardware noobie. I've just placed a ssd drive in raid config into my acer predator. I've had to take a hot swap bay away for this. I have put in another pci raid card for the extra sata ports. On boot with harddrive plugged into card, the computer will not boot as it says it cant find drive. Any help?
If in raid mode you will need to install windows directly to it so that you can load its raid driver so it will be recognisable to boot from.
DABhand!!! its great to have a member like you around on CHU,with your knowledge thats a great help to one and all,thanks for taking the time out to help CHU's members,its time you had some recognition, well done to you.
I agree, DABhand pretty much walked me through the next configuration for my new gaming rig. Thanks again brother.
Problem solved, faulty pci card!, brought it back hit them on the head and voila, working like a beast. Thanking you squire DABhand!!!
Also for future reference, putting a drive into raid mode by itself won't make it go faster, raid mode is only good for one thing, daisy chaining other drives in an array.
