1. The information for the motherboard provided by the Sapphire web
site is rather meager.
2. If you want to use drivers from other sources, use the DFI drivers
for the LANPARTY UT 790FX-M2R motherboard, which the PC-AM2RD790
3. You don't provide any specifics as to what you've done, but the
following should work:
a. Connect two drives to SATA1 and 2.
b. Enable OnChip SATA Controller.
c. Set OnChip SATA Type to RAID; save settings and reboot.
d. Configure the drives as RAID0 in the AMD RAID BIOS; save settings
e. Verify that the RAID0 drive appears in Hard Disk Boot Priority
under Advanced BIOS features.
f. Make sure Hard Disk appears as a Boot Device.
