Due to a Forum s/w problem not showing my response in this thread, I'm re-posting my 1/30/13 response to OP's post #2 to aid readability. David
Jess, you didn't say what mobo you're using, but from the RAID controllers you mentioned coupled with the Z68 chipset I'd say an ASUS. I do think what I said could be your problem as I saw this stated on a different forum:
"After the OS is installed, you install the ISRT software and management
software. And the technology will only work on INTEL drive controllers -- not
Marvel or JBMicron."
I've included the link to the thread on the other forum for your reference.
