I am using a custom build machine..

The weird part is when I put the ssd mode to native ide or ahci I can see them in system repair but I can't acces them, it says I need to format is first..
Get Bios back in Raid mode, find the raid drivers. And load them into Windows recovery. What version of Windows are you using ?
Okay it's back in Raid mode, but where can I find the drivers?
I'm using Win7 ultimate 64 bit.

Uh, question?

Ok, so I'm new to this forum and not all that computer smart. I can get around pretty well, but when it comes to the really technical stuff like this I'm totally lost D:
So here's my question: This doesn't completely reset your computer/laptop to factory defaults, does it? I have some important files on my laptop that I haven't gotten the chance to backup yet, and my laptop got stuck in this startup repair loop and I'm worried I'll lose my files if I try to fix it.

Hello Max, and welcome to Seven Forums.

No worries. This will not delete or reset Windows or your files.

Ok so I followed the steps but when I clicked "restart" it was like nothing happened! The computer looped back into startup repair and failed again. Is there something I'm missing? Do you have to repeat the process multiple times?
Sorry if I'm being annoying
