Windows 8.1 Pro RAID issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had a hardware RAID card installed in my computer
    prior to upgrading to Windows 8.1 Pro and it worked well in Windows 7. Since
    installing 8.1 I have had nothing but issues with my RAID. I understood that it
    might be a problem with my card not supporting Win 8.1. So, ordered and received
    a card that does support Win 8 but no luck, my RAID is still down after
    installing the new card. It appears that it may be a software issue. I am going
    to uninstall and reinstall the RAID software. However, with 8.1 being a newer
    operating system, I also am concerned that there may be a portion of 8.1 that
    supports a RAID directly off of the motherboard if properly set to do so.
    Because there is no 8.1 manual, I cannot search for the answer in any useful
    way. So, please tell me if I am fighting interference from a portion of 8.1 that
    would do the job and I just do not know it. Also, if there is a portion of 8.1
    that supports a RAID I would certainly like to know how to activate it and
    specify a RAID 1.
