Windows 7: SSD for OS and data on HDD in RAID 1 on ASRock H77M

SSD for OS and data on HDD in RAID 1 on ASRock H77M

for my new system (s. specs) I want the SSD be for the OS on SATA3. My data I want on RAID 1 on two of the SAT2 ports. the 2 HDD currently are in a different old PC that still is in use and i can't swap them before i figured this out.

I installed the SSD in AHCI mode. But now I realized i need to switch it ot RAID in order to use RAID. but when I do that, the OS doesn't seem to start anymore. While googling I learned RAId is some sort of better AHCI and I guess i could have installed the OS while in RAID mode. Is there a way to use RAID without having to re-install all new?

I know RAID 1 isn't real backup and i also backup daily on separate disk and online. but i like RAID 1 just in case something fails in between.

ASRock A75 Pro4-M or Asrock B75 Pro3-M?
I used the A75 Pro4-M in my current build, but I'm building another for a friend. I'm not sure if I should go with the same board, or use the B75 Pro3-M this time. It's hard to find any reviews on either of these boards. I like the PCIE spacing on the A75 board, but I'd also like to try the...
