I understand that you are not able to boot from your RAID from a cold boot but the array is present on a reboot.
In regards to your inquire, I recommend you to go in to BIOS and set a hard drive delay of 5 seconds, the option is on the SATA configuration option. This will halt the system for 5 seconds to properly recognize the array.
Victor_Intel, that's a good tip for me to remember, as Troy's config was something I was considering as well.
Troy, I would be very interested in reading your experiences here. Do you see a good performance gain when running 2 ssd in raid as against single ssd?
Does the config get you a score of 7.9 for hdd performance in the experience index?
Have you had any other issues with this config as yet?
