Windows 7: RAID 1 install Win 7

29 Jul 2012   #11

Win 7 Prof


Heres the deal.

The box came with all 3 drives connected to the Intel SATA controllers. I took the OS C: drive OFF the Intel controller and onto the secondary Marvel controller by itself. Then I was able to load the RAID drivers from the C: drive during installation. So the Intel RAID exists separately from the OS drive. Now its all better.

Thanks for all the input!
