Thank you for contacting Intel Communities.
According to the information you provided, you are in step 5 of the guide but you can't go to step 6 due to boot issues, is that right?
If yes, please try the following:
- Both NVMe drives have the latest firmware.
- Attempt to create the RAID using one drive at the time:
- Test drive one on M.2 slot 1 (check RST PCIe Storage Remapping for M.2 slot 1), save changes (F10) and continue to step 9 (don't select create RAID Volume as we want to check if the drive being tested is recognized)
- Test drive one on M.2 slot 2 (check RST PCIe Storage Remapping for M.2 slot 2 and uncheck slot 1), and check if the drive is recognized in step 9.
- The process should be done with the second drive as well.
Please let me know how it goes.
Correct, after step 5, my NUC stops booting.
I tried the recommended steps, configuring RAID one drive at a time, alternating drives between M.2 slots. Every time I enable RST remapping for the active slot, with either drive, the same behavior happens. If I enable RST for the empty slot, the device boots correctly and I am able to see the "Add-In Config" section as expected.
I am installing Windows now so I will be able to apply any firmware updates for my drives.
FWIW, I have two Kingston HyperX Predator 240GB drives, model # SHPM2280P2/240G
Will report back once firmware is updated.
Regarding enabling UEFI and disabling Legacy, can you elaborate on this? I don't see any such options in BIOS settings.
Turns out it was the SSD firmware. Updated both drives to the latest available using the Kingston app (Download KSM_10010_5TP, for shpm2280p2 | Kingston Technology )
Once firmware was updated, re-enabled RAID and RST remapping options and machine booted correctly and Add-In Config option was available now. Configured RAID array using tool and everything is working as expected now.
Thanks for the help!
