    Cannot load Win 10 on RAID 0 SSD config

    I hope someone out there might have some insight to this very perplexing problem. I have had a Win 7 Pro machine (which was in a RAID 0 config using two Mushkin Reactor SSDs, 512GB each) which I updated to Win 10 sometime in Dec 2015. Not a single problem with the upgrade! Yea. Right after the Anniversary Update (which was early August), I noticed several wonky things happening like Blue screens saying things like CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED and others which were very frustrating. I rolled back the AU and from that point every so often, I would get BSODs with a variety of code errors. I used Windows Tweaking AIO tool to try to fix things, but it just didn't seem quite right. I use this machine mostly for testing and gaming, so the loss of data wasn't super critical to me, other than a few games (which I back-up often). I decided it was time to do a clean bare-metal install, but I ran into a brick wall. After using MCT to get Windows 10 Pro 64bit on a USB flash drive, and resetting the RAID array on my ASUS Sabertooth Z97 Mark 2 MB (updated the BIOS and Intel's RST drivers), I can't get past the "Copying Windows Files" in the install mode. No little dots following the words, it just gets stuck. I made sure the MCT was using EFI Windows install. I just can't get Win 10 to load on the Mushkin SSD's in RAID 0. I deleted the array and tried again, but to no avail. I then went back to my Win 7 Pro flash drive and the OS loaded up without a hitch. So, the question remains is this, is there something about loading Win 10 on a RAID 0 array that I'm not aware of? I know some will say why a SSD RAID 0 array to begin with? I'm addicted to speed and it was working very well in its previous state, but ever since the AU, it just plain didn't behave properly. Now I can't figure out how to get Win 10 back on my SSDs (RAID 0).

    Any insights would be helpful.

    That's exactly what I'm looking to upgrade to. Thought about it a year ago, but couldn't afford the hardware at the time. Will look into it the first part of the new year. Thanks for replying

    Get windows install cd and get to command window, run, chkdsk /f /r
    You can repair your start up after you do scandisk.
