Add Intel Matrix Storage ROM in RAID 0+1

I would like to add two Corsair SSDs in RAID 0+1. However, it is not possible to set up the RAID, as the Intel Matrix Storage ROM is unable to detect the SSD. Is it possible to reset the BIOS to add the Intel Matrix Storage ROM?

Try doing the following things.

In your bios, the options should be set to RAID first. Don't worry it will not affect the SSD in non-RAID part. Now press CTRL+l during the booting of the windows. It will take you to the place where you can set the members and RAID level. Here you will be able to see all your drives that are currently connected to SATA bus. Select any number of drives you want and the level of RAID you want to set. Once the array is properly defined, this is do the trick for your BIOS because it will make the BIOS treat your hard drives as 1 single logical disk rather than 2 separate disks. Now in the Hard Drives option, make damn sure that your SSD is selected first. Then come back where the Boot order is and put the CDROM first and then the SSD.

The second solution is

  • Connect your SSD to the first port. Then connect your SATA HDD's to the remaining ports.
  • Start up your PC and here I am assuming that you haven't installed any OS . Press the DEL key to go to BIOS.
  • Under the Storage configuration option, you can configure the SATA as RAID. But do remember the 1st drive should be SSD and the 2nd Drive should be the RAID one which only consists the HDD.
  • Keep all other options as they are and then save and exit the BIOS
  • Now do all the steps from the CTRL+l from above
  • Then quit the utility.
  • Load the OS and pause, you can load the RAID drives that came with the motherboard CD. Continue installing your OS at on SSD that you have selected. One thing to note here is you must not list that SSD as a standard hard drive in the BIOS. It must be listed as a NON-RAID Disk so that you can install the OS on that drive.
  • After you get to your desktop go to computer management and select storage and then disk management.
  • There you will see both the SSD containing your current OS and then the RAID array you have made should show up.
  • Select the box with the RAID array under disk management option and right click on it. Select format and choose NTFS and leave all other intact.

Good day,

For those users who wish to combine the benefits of two RAID levels, matrix RAID is the solution. When using two hard drives, matrix RAID allows RAID 0 and RAID 1 functions to be combined, where critical files can be stored on RAID 1, and RAID 0 can be used for non-critical items such as software. In 2005, the matrix RAID capability was expanded to include RAID 5 and RAID 10. For instance, RAID 5 and RAID 0 can be combined to provide higher performance, capacity, and fault tolerance. A user can edit digital video on a high-performance 4-drive RAID 0 array, then transfer it to RAID 5 for protected storage when completed.

Yes, it is possible to reset BIOS to add the  Matrix Storage ROM.But for this the BIOS must include the Matrix Storage option. Also, the Matrix Storage manager option should be integrated with the system BIOS on all motherboards that use a supported chipset.
