Windows 10: Why does one HDD show more properties info than another?

    Hi topgundcp,

    Looked in my BIOS. It has 6 Intel HDD interfaces. From what I can see they can be set for RAID or SATA but one setting rules ALL SIX ports. Four ports are normally RAID (for my two RAID mirrors) so the setting has to be RAID which means the other ports have to be RAID too

    This wasn't a problem under Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 :) Is it just a problem under Windows 10?

    Thanks for your reply

    You probably have to use CRTL-I at boot time to get into RAID Setup and reset Disk 6 to non RAID. When you setup RAID 0 or RAID 1, the HD's have to be in pair.

    Yes, I know about RAID mirrors. :)

    I have two at the moment but I always hoped to have three eventually. I usually do my maintenance through IRST (Intel Rapid Storage Technology) interface. In IRST (AFAIK) there is no way to "set" whether a drive is RAID or non RAID. IRST determines this by itself depending on whether a RAID set involves each drive. In fact, in the CTRL/I summary on boot, Disk 6 IS identified as non RAID.

    As I said, I haven't done a CTRL/I in years (over 5) but, the next time I switch on I will try it. I may be wrong (and more likely I am) but I doubt CTRL/I will allow the User to determine the RAID status of a drive!? I would expect it to make its' own mind up. I can imagine a User trying to tell CTRL/I that a disc in a RAID set is not RAID???? What would happen THEN?

    Thanks for your response
