    Non RAID disks show as removable but RAID disks show as normal


    Hi everyone!
    I researched a lot over this problem, but I cannot figure out how to resolve it.

    Motherboard: Intel DP55WB, BIOS version: 0336
    BIOS has 3 options for hard drives: IDE, RAID, AHCI

    In Windows 10 Pro x64
    If I select AHCI in BIOS all disks show as internals, but cannot work with RAID.
    If I select RAID in BIOS all RAID disks show as internals, and non RAID disks show as removable.
    IRST (Intel Rapid Storage Technology) version: 16.7.0.1009, for Windows 10
    1 x SSD Kingston HyperX Savage, as stand-alone, shown as removable.
    2 x Toshiba (mechanical) SATA3, as RAID 1, shown as internal.

    In Windows 7 Ultimate x64
    If I select RAID in BIOS all RAID disks show as internals, and non RAID disks show as internals too.
    IRST (Intel Rapid Storage Technology) version: 12.9.0.1001, for Windows 7
    This configuration works flawless.

    Any advice?
    Thanks in advance!

    :)

  2. RAID error, foreign disk

    Hello there,

    Been searching for information, found some but looking for a bid more. So here is the case:

    RAID 0 data partion, software raid under windows 10, dont ask why raid 0.

    Was trying to configure automated sleep and wakeup times and during this configuration the RAID 0 crashed. I thought disk failure Bye Bye data. Changed the SATA and power cable on one drive an poof it was back online, only in foreign disk mode under disk
    manager.

    So the original 2 disks from the raid 0 are still running, 1 is shown in the PC as active (other partitions can be reached on the computer) and the other is a foreign disk. The striped volume states FAILURE and the original disk, which is now foreign, is
    still shown as missing. I tried using every SATA port on the MOBO but that didnt help. So my question now is what is my best option:

    Option 1: Import foreign disk on the machine where the RAID 0 setup was running.

    Option 2: Deactive the " live" disk on the running system and attach the 2 disks of the raid on another system and import the RAID setup at the same time.

    I hope this was clear enough, since I live in Europe I will go to sleep now but will check in the moring!

    Hope you guys can help and no, i do not have a back up, and yes i know foolish.....

    Regards,

    RAID 0 (Stripe) Failed) On a non raid HDD

    at one point it was. Doesn't really matter how. make sure that disk is not selected as a RAID disk in the current controller. Though once the information is written in order to remove it the BIOS selection of the disk (if present) will need to be removed (this may wipe the disk) the other way if the controller already shows it as unselected in the RAID config is to wipe the disk in totality (diskpart | clean on windows systems) to delete the old RAId partition data off the device.

    Non RAID disks show as removable but RAID disks show as normal

    software raid discovery

    Hello,

    Software RAID (redundant array of independent disks) is a form of
    RAID performed on the internal server. RAID is a data protection method that can be in the form of hardware or software, depending on where the processing occurs.

    This kind of issue is more complex than what is normally posted here in the Community. We suggest that you post your query in our
    TechNet Forum for further assistance.

    Regards.
