I've wasted quite a few hours arriving at this conclusion: RAIDXpert does not WORK!
I’ve tried everything I can think of on this machine and NOTHING will get the 1 gb drives to appear in RAIDXpert/Advanced.
I’ve booted from the SSD and tried running RX from there. No change in Advanced drop-down (it’s always blank)
Changing the drives to RAID in RX makes the SSD drive (on SATA 1) fail to boot into W7.
Moving the SDD to SATA port 5 (or 6) and setting those two ports to any available options fails to boot Windows from it.
Removing all drives besides one 1 GB drive and installing Win7 and RAIDXpert to it, then adding the other two 1GB drives on SATA ports 1-2-3 allows boot but still fails to have any of the drives appear in RAIDXpert under “advanced”.
All drives appear in BIOS when connected.
All three 1 GB drives are freshly formatted NTFS.
ASUS F2A55-M motherboard
4 GB RAM (one DIMM)
64 GB SSD 6gbps SATA for OS/boot with Win7 installed on it
3 TB SATA HDD (not physically connected at all during this ‘experiment&rsquo
3 x 1 GB SATA HDD for RAID 5
Win7 Home Premium 64 (I can but have not yet tried Pro or Ultimateas I don’t think that’s the issue)
