Hello, 

 

I have an ASUS ROG gaming laptop that I just installed two M.2 SSD's in. I am trying to put these two drives into a RAID 0, however in the BIOS there is no option to create a new RAID volume. Both drives are recognized and RAID is enabled in the BIOS, but under the RAID menu in BIOS there is just no option to create a new volume. Any help is appreciated.

See the below link. Can you get to the RAID configuration by pressing Ctrl + I at boot? The link isn't for the ROG laptop but hopefully the key combination will give what you want.

Here are some other links that may help.

Thanks for the reply, I have visited all of the links you posted to no avail. Also when booting I don't have the option for CNTRL + I. It goes straight from the ROG splash screen to the windows install. The only option I have is F2 for the BIOS.

I don't know if you have already tried the ROG forums. Have you contacted ASUS support? I'm not sure of your location but a live chat is offered.

Im currently waiting to be "approved" to post in the ROG forums. I have contacted their support team, and they cant give advise on upgrades so they escalated to their engineering team. Should hear from them soon, just looking to get this done as im leaving for vacation in a few days.

@JohnC_21, don't you need a RAID controller for RAID or can it be done with software?

It can be done both with software and through the firmware.
