  1. how to install Windows in a raid 1 config


    Hi. I have two 160gb hdd and I wanted to install windows in a raid 1 configuration with those drives. I have windows 10 currently installed in a third 320gb hdd and already transformed the other two into a single raid 1 partition. How do I install windows in the raid 1? Do I have to move the system to that partition or do I have to install it from scratch into it? If it's the second option, how could I install windows in a dynamic partition? thanks

    :)

  2. Fresh Win 10 Pro install and RAID 1


    Thanks guys. I set up RAID in the BIOS following MSI settings in their manual. Then I loaded windows following the prompts. But I must have missed a step. And hence my questions after my install. So, I did as you suggested Samuria, and set it up in Windows. I would have preferred a MoBo hardware setup. But as long as I have RAID 1 I will be happy. Thanks, B.

    raid 80g or 160g

    I'm actually not sure what you just said, so I'll just list the steps.

    1: Install the drives
    2: Go in to your BIOS (or whatever is controlling the RAID)
    3: Set them up as RAID
    4: Install windows
    5: Press F6 when Windows says "Press F6 if you need to install additional RAID or SCSI controllers."
    6: Insert the floppy and load the drivers
    7: Continue with the install like normal
     
  4. how to install Windows in a raid 1 config

    Installing Windows 7 on RAID 0 Config...

    you need to create the raid array on boot with the bios bound raid menu then use just the intel F6 install driver during os install before you detect the drive your going to put the os on which by then should already be in a raid config

    also is your bios set to raid not ahci or ide?
