thanks for your answer. I could not find a comparability list from LSI that mentions the 7 series chipset (too new, i am guessing).
Since LSI is the de facto standard for RAID controllers, I was hoping that at least basic support would be provided / tested (just one LSI based controller). Even most Intel RAID controllers are LSI based. I am guessing they would not work either.
I understand that this is "only" a desktop board, but does that mean it is not designed to work with professional add-in cards?
With a 3rd generation Core i7 and the improved QuickSync capabilities I was hoping to build a powerful Media Editing Station. However, without a RAID controller I am already severely limited in storage capacity and performance.
I also could not get the build in RAID to work. I set the SATA mode in the BIOS to RAID but no Rapid Storage configuration prompt appeared during boot. Is the build in RAID also not supported or am i missing something?
Thank you & regards!
Have you managed to solve this problem?
I'm also going to buy this motherbard and using it with PERC 6/i....but looking into your post I'm wondering if this is just not a waste of money....If this motherboard has some compatibility issues with PERC family, then I'm going to buy something from Asrock or Asus with VT-d..
thanks in advance
OK. I found possible solution here:

Sorry for the late update:
It now works with the latest BIOS from the 11/20/2012: 54P.
Before that it did not work, even with add in card text enabled. I had even insulated the SMBus pins, no change.
But with the new BIOS it finally works.
I have a HP Smart Array P400 with LSI AS1078. Card is PCIe x8 Standard.
It only initialize in the PCIe x4 Slot and not in the PCIe x16 Slot.
I tried different Bios Version include the newest :-(
As Victor_intel mentioned above, unfortunately Intel(R) does not validate the compatibility with RAID controllers on the Intel(R) Desktop Boards. I do recommend you to contact the card manufacturers and confirm that they are compatible with the Intel(R) 7 series express chipset, this way you may avoid a compatibility issue like the one that you are experiencing.
Hello everyone, I am new to this Intel Support Community and I would like to ask for all the brothers and sisters out there to advice me for the problem that I've encountered in one of my customer site. My customer is using Intel DQ77MK motherboard with Intel E31275V2 Processor, it was built with Intel Raid Controller RS2SG244 and connected with 6 Mini SAS to 24 units 2TB Western Digital RE4 HDD and the 6GB SAS with another JBOD which is 24 units 2TB WD RE4 HDD as well. My issue is there occasionally the HDD will missing randomly and I can't help to get it back unless I restart the PC. Once I've restart, the HDD will become 'unconfigured good' which i need to force it online one by one and re-load the configuration in order to get my data back. I hope those who encounter such problem can guide me what is my next step to avoid this issue again. Thanks everyone.
