I'm having some trouble getting RAID 5 to work on a machine I recently upgraded with new disks.
After configuring my RAID setup during startup my RAID 0 system drives (2x Corsair SSDs) worked fine and Windows 8 64-bit was installed without any problems, but the RAID 5 array I created (3x WD 1TB) is showing as individual disks under "Disk Management" in Windows 8.
I tried using RaidXpert under Windows to re-create the array, but there RAID 5 doesn't even show as an option...
Has anyone got any ideas on what it takes to get this to work, or am I going to have to stick to the abysmal write speeds that "Windows Storage Spaces" have?
The motherboard I have is an Asus Crosshair IV Formula (AMD 890FX/SB850) and a Phenom II 1090T plus 16GB G.Skill Ripjaws-X. I have the latest drivers and software installed, plus upgraded to the latest BIOS version before OS installation.
