I have a 64-bit Windows 7 system that is functioning fine. I have two identical hard drives (one is the drive Windows is currently installed on) and want to set up a RAID 1 mirror without reinstalling Windows. The hard drives are both Western Digital 2TB Black (http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.aspx?id=760). Both are fairly new and are showing no signs of problems. My motherboard is the ASRock A770DE+ (http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/A770DE+/).
When I go into the BIOS and switch on the RAID and configure it as a mirror, Windows will not boot. The Windows logo comes up but then I get the blue screen of death with an error code of 0x0000007B. If I turn the RAID off in the BIOS and reboot, Windows boots normally. I tried installing both the AMD RAID drivers and RAIDXpert Utility (http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Pages/raid_windows.aspx#2) and changed the registry settings suggested by Microsoft (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976) but nothing has worked so far. Does anyone know why this might still be happening and how to fix it? Thanks in advance!
