Recently re-installed windows using a bootable usb as i have no optical drive
and some software
Made SSD into a raid cache
went to reboot computer after some windows updates and now i get the above message.
Bios sees the hard drives
using the bootable usb for windows repair shows no installations of windows, and the cmd doesn't show the hard drives,
Things i have tried:
Turned the SSD back into a normal drive
Removed the SSD Entirely
Used bootable usb for windows repair
Used the CMD console from repair to try bootrec
Re-installing windows entirely
I found that windows repair doesn't recognize the windows installation on the HDD and also does not recognize the HDD itself.
On trying to re-install widows i was given no option to select a drive to install on, and it would not continue.
Put linux mint on a flash drive, It recognized the HDD but gave the error "Unable to mount 1.5 TB Volume - Adding read ACL for uid 999 to `/media/mint' failed: Operation not supported"
