Today, I bought a new components for my HTPC and as usual, I went with Gigabyte Motherboard.

This time, I bought an AMD board: GA-F2A88XN-WIFI. Besides the board, I bought a Kingston Fury 120 GB SSD and 2x Seagate Barracuda 3TB disks.

The idea was to use SSD for OS and applications and 2x 3TB HDDs in RAID0 for storage.

I finally managed to put everything together, and I wanted to install OS to it. However, this is where my problems started.

I never actually done SSD+HDD RAID0 on a same PC. I run my main PC on 2x256GB SSD in RAID0 without problem, so I thought, this would be a piece of cake as well. Well, I thought wrong :-(

I need your help please.

I plugged the HW the following way:

Port0 SSD

Port1 LG BlueRay, DVD, CD ROM

Port2 and Port3 Seagate's HDDs

When I choose RAID as controller in BIOS, I can enter the Raid configuration and create an array from disk 2 and 3 (HDDs) but it only gives me 2.1TB total. Also, when I reboot, I no longer see SSD in the list of boot options, therefore, I cannot install OS. I am really struggling here, I have no idea how to make this work. I would really appreciate the help.

On a different topic, I bought Kingston HyperX Savage 2.8GB 2400mhz memory. When I select XMP profile 1 for 2400 settings, the pc won't boot and I have to load bios defaults to make it boot at least to BIOS. XMP profile 2 2133mhz works fine. Why is this happening?

I really hope what I am trying to do here is manageable, because I would really be disappointed if it doesn't work :-(

Thank you for your suggestions and answers.

Thank you in advance.
