I am trying to set up RAID1 with two identical SATA drives. The current motherboard I'm using is a Gigabyte P35-DS3R version 1. When I was in the Intel Matrix Storage Manager I chose Create RAID volume, named the volume and also selected the Raid level as RAID1 Mirror. Once I select Create volume it says ALL DATA ON SELECTED DISKS WILL BE LOST / Are you sure you want to create this volume
If I say yes to that message that pops up, will I lose all data on my drives? One thing that makes me question this is the fact that I never selected any disks becuase the "Select Disks..." portion is grayed out and disabled.
There is also a tool in my Start menu that says "Gigabyte Raid Configurer". When I try running this it says Gigabyte Raid Configurer tool doesn't support AHCI or IDE mode! It only supports Raid mode. I've switch the setting in the BIOS to that mode and Windows does not boot. A blue screen comes up very quickly and the computer restarts before I can even see what it says.
Other hardware I have is 2GB Corsair DDR2 800mhz, Q6600 quad-core, 2 Hitatchi SATA 160GB drives...
Thanks for the help!!
