P5B-Deluxe RAID problems!
Okay i go to install RAID on my raptors. but i cannot enter the utility. I'm getting uber angry because i am doing everything they tell me. I was supposed to:
A. Set config in BIOS to RAID (from original IDE).
B. reboot and press ctrl+I on startup to enter RAID utility.
Here's the thing. I can't even enter the utility!! I thought it might be due to the fact that my hard drives are not formatted, but that's really silly because i should still be able to get into the utility. I don't wanna phone Asus, but i will if i have to. Anyone have any ideas before i break down and phone them....
I will check back in awhile, hopefully someone has a solution to my problem. Thanks a bundle guys
okay i read in the manual that it says "You must install windows 2000 service pack 4 or windows xp before using serial ata hard disk drives. The seriel ata RAID feature(RAID...) is available only if you are using windows 2000/xp or later version."
What does this mean... this makes no sense that you need windows installed before you setup the RAID??? or am i missing another step....
yes you are missing everything. He is talking about the Raid Bios utility.

You should see raid utility and key combination to enter the utility.
