How to switch to Raid 0 (striped)

I have win 8.1, 2x500 gb ssd drives. Have striped them (raid 0) thru device manager. i see both drives, but cannot figure how to boot to new array. Both drives have been added to a Raid card. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/...al_qh_dp_t

BIOS, check your boot order/drive/setting (legacy/UEFI/Raid) - but on a side note, way wrong forum Wink

I have a dell XPS 8300. BIOS allows me to change to RAID or Non Raid. Change cannot be made to only one drive. Either or. In Raid mode, would not boot. I believe one of the points of the card is that you should not need to change BIOS. I did not seem able to clone to new Raid 0 drive, so I copy and pasted to it. Once that was done, I change BIOS to enable Raid, but it would not see the single raided drive, only sees 2 separate drives.

Since the drive are connected to the RAID card, you need to go into the BIOS for the card (which actually is BIOS RAID aka Fake RAID). Real HW RAID cards start at $200 new. But anyway if you can access the card's BIOS you should be able to create a striped array and boot from it.
