How to set up RAID in BIOS - not many options

Omen 870-030vx z170 chipset
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

 

Where can I find an operating manual for the HP branded motherboard?

 

My Oct. 2016 (build date) Omen 870-030vx desktop has 4x SATA connectors on the MB (Z170 chipset).  It has a 512gig SSD boot drive attached to SATA#1.

 

I attached 2x 6gig HDDs to SATA#3 and #4 thinking that HDDs are usually connected in pairs for RAID such that channel 1 would be SATA#1&#2 and channel 2 would be SATA#3 & #4.

 

The BIOS set up lets you change from AHCI mode to RAID but it never gives you an option to choose which set of HDDs you want to place in the array - nor does it have an option to choose RAID "0" or RAID "1", etc.

 

If RAID is choosen in the BIOS then the computer fails to boot. 

 

What have I done wrong here?

How to set up RAID in BIOS - not many options

Hi:

 

You can't just switch the controller settings without making some changes in the OS registry, or the OS will not boot.

 

Please see this related thread.  Should be the same for W10.

Unfortunately, I have no idea where you would find a manual for the motherboard.  The only guides available will be on the support page for your PC.

 

You may be able to use this general guide for how to set up a RAID array...starting on page 15
