Enable RAID without reinstalling
I've just installed a RAID1 array in my Windows 8 machine. It isn't working.
With my BIOS in AHCI mode, the array appears as one drive in Windows as expected, however if I switch the BIOS to RAID mode, nothing appears apart from the drive Windows is installed on.
I've tried changing the "start" value in iaStor and isStorV in the registry.
I've tried the Microsoft recommended route of rebooting in to safe mode with RAID enabled to force loading of the drivers (the drive showed up in safe mode but not normal boot).
Google doesn't seem to turn up any more ideas so I'm thinking I have no option but to reinstall.
One thing that is puzzling me though is how the array shows up as a drive when the BIOS is in AHCI mode. I can read and write to it with no problems, but as the Intel Storage Manager won't work unless the drive is in RAID mode, I have no idea whether it really is working in RAID or if I'm just writing to one of the drives in the array...
