I'm trying to create a raid 1 configuration (mirroring) on windows 7 with 2 identical HDD.

However, it seems that the option, is not present on my system and I can't understand why. Is it because I'm using home edition? Is it because of my motherboard? (should I only update my motherboard's drivers or I can't definitely do it?)

Motherboard model: Asrock h67m-ge/ht p1.40

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Hardware Raid is configured during the bios post, that is if the motherboard supports raid, you never stated if you want software or hardware raid. – Moab Nov 12 '11 at 2:27
I want windows 7 raid 1 (which is software by the way) – Fire-Dragon-DoL Nov 13 '11 at 0:27
It looks like your motherboard supports hardware raid just fine. – Ampersand Nov 22 '11 at 17:59

You can't create the raid configuration from windows 7 if it's a home edition. You need a professional one.
