[Updated[ Can't get the installer to start with Fake RAID0

Recommended Posts


I am currently running Windows 8.1 on a RAID0 array consiting of 2 Samsung 840 Pro SSD's. The SATA controller is set to RAID in the BIOS and that's what I used to create the array.

I was hoping I would be able to dual boot Windows and OS X from the array but unfortunately when trying to start the installer with RAID enabled it ends with a kernel panic -



When changing the SATA mode in the BIOS to AHCI the installer starts up quickly without any problems so RAID mode must be what's causing the issue above. 

Is there anything I can do to make it work on my current RAID 0 Array?

Specs - AMD FX8150 / 2 x  XFX HD7950 Black Edition (Crossfire) / 12GB Corsair Vengeance 1866Mhz / 2 x Samsung 840 Pro 128GB (RAID0) / Seagate Barracuda 2TB + 1TB / Asus Xonar D2X / Corsair RM750W / Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z / H100i / Fractal Design Define R4
