Hi.

I have this now:

BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. 0303 07/18/2008

Is that of any use?

Mike.

One of the three Vx barebones models here,

ASUSTeK Computer Inc.

and the manual available for download doesn't help any as it refers you to the RAID manual on the support disk that came with the computer.

Yes, I have the V3-M3N8200 but no manual or disc.

Oh oh. All is not lost though as as far as I know there isn't much if any difference from one motherboard to another that uses the Nvidia RAID controller, which should make the setup guide from any other just as good. With that said grab this one from Asrock,

http://download.asrock.com/manual/ra...TA/English.pdf - direct download

and give it a read, then follow the steps to see if they work for yours as well.

Thanks for that. I'll download and read to see where I go from here.

A big thank you to everyone who has posted here and helped me.

I have now downloaded an up to date NVIDIA RAID driver for my motherboard, and during boot up I went into settings and there is the RAID options.

So taking all your information, I am now ordering two 1Tb drives (WD Caviar Green or Samsung Spinpoint). I'll do a fresh install of Win 7 and then Mirror the two drives.

Thank you all.
Mike.

Replacing W7 RC with W7 Pro...
I've been running the Release Candidate on my computer for a while but now have a legit version of W7 Pro available to me through school. Can I simply launch the setup of the new version or do I need to format my drive to get rid of the RC and start from scratch? Thanks.
