Solved!

Can't access RAID setup via Ctrl+i during startup

HP Recommended
HP ENVY 750-170se
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I enabled RAID in BIOS > Storage Options > SATA Emulations.

There are 2 matching HDD's attached to SATA ports 2 & 3.

On boot the Intel Rapid Storage screen shows both drives. It shows the prompt to hit "Ctrl + I" to enter setup.

 

However: when I hit, hold, or mash Ctrl+I before, during and after the IRS screen, it never enters RAID setup.

 

What is preventing me from entering the RAID setup menu?

 

Are there specific SATA ports I need the HDD's to be attached to?

 

Mainboard is model 2B4B, BIOS verson A0.11

Based on this post I tried using Intel Rapid Storage to make the RAID. IRST wasn't installed/accessible in Windows so I donwloaded it... when installing I was told there was a newer version already installed (weird because I couldn't access it).

 

IRST in Windows made the RAID volume. No need to enter during POST/startup.
