Updating bios and raid
After a BIOS update or reset, at the end of POST a screen is displayed giving you the option to to go into the BIOS to set your BIOS options as needed. This is where the BIOS profile feature in the Tools section is a very handy feature to use.
Once all your BIOS settings are set as you need them, you say them in a named profile.
i plan on connecting my other two 3-tb drives that were RAID1 in my other system which has all my data, from this experience should i never update the bios again since I have windows 7 installed across two drives as RAID 0? Was there something i should have done before updating the bios to preserve the existing raid0 SSD's having the operating system?
and for my other two drives which are RAID1 having my data, can i just connect those and will they be recognized as RAID1 and just show up in windows?
RAID arrays are much harder to ruin than some people say they are.
I have two, non-default BIOS option settings that I must have, so I am accustomed to setting them again (via a profile) after a BIOS update.
The same goes for drive type option for each drive, after a BIOS update (and a CMOS/BIOS reset) the drive type will be set to its default, which is Hard Disk Drive.
Sorry to say, but this is all BIOS update 101 and RAID 101 material.
Hi, I am attempting to install ubuntu 16.04 on my yoga 900.
The bios can see the 512 gb samsung hard drive and so can Windows. I believe this has to do with the sata mode on the bios.
Unfortuneatly there is no option to change it from RAID to AHCI or disabled.
Will there be a BIOS update for this in the near future?
Then after a BIOS update or clear, you simply load the profile, save and exit, and all is fine.
