    Motherboard:
    ASUS M5A97 Evo - AM3+ - 970 - SATA 6Gbps and USB 3.0 - ATX AMD ATX DDR3 2133 Motherboards
    ========================

    No matter what i do nothing works

    My system is an AMD



    so this what i am doing i put 2 SSD on Port 1 and Port 2 of Motherboard , Go to bios enable Hardware raid 1
    once raid 1 is built then i have a USB Stick that was created by rufus_v1.3.4 and plugin USB to pc and go to bios and boot UEFI USB Data Drive windows os load , i put second USB which i have Raid Driver for windows 7 64bit , OS now see 2 hard drives as 1 with Raid 1 , i install OS , then after few windows updates pc restart and no os found

    Then i tried with DVD , i am not able to make a bootable DVD of windows 7 64bit with UEFI so i go to bios and then Boot with DVD Room Drive with UEFI and same thing put usb get the raid driver install os

    Seems to be you are overcomplicating things.

    Put your 2 SSD in the SATA 6G ports.

    Go into BIOS and find them, change the SATA mode to RAID.

    Open the AMD RAID utility when prompted.

    Build your RAID.

    Save and exit.

    Use the Windows USB tool to make your OS install drive.

    Do not install OS with any other drives connected except the USB drive you made. Make sure you use SP1 OS no other drivers needed for RAID.

    May I ask why you are using those two ports? I tend to use 0 and 1 for my primary RAID array?
