Intel Raid trouble.
I have an Asus P8Z68-VLX motherboard and have raid enabled in the bios. I have two set of mirrored drives, two 1.5Tb and two 3Tb. I'm running Win 7 Pro 64bit and I have a first Windows Backup system image on the 1.5Tb mirror, and on the larger 3Tb mirror, have Windows set to backup and do a current system image. The C drive is a separate SSD. This all works normally day to day.
When doing a restore, the Windows Restore running for the hard drive, or booted from the system restore CD, sees the 3Tb mirrored raid as two drives, and the 1.5Tb mirrored as one drive. I can get into the 3Tb mirrored raid drives, either one, and all the files are accessible. I can't however do a restore from either 3Tb drive. I can do a restore from the 1.5Tb drive.
I haven't got to the stage of disabling drives or moving them around to isolate issues with the motherboard or not, as I thought first I would ask here if there are any known issues with the OS that would cause this behavior. No point in going to a lot of work if there is. Anyone have any experience with this?
