P70 - Drivers for NVMe RAID0 ?

I have a P70 with a Samsung 960 EVO SSD. It had the NVMe driver and everything was fine.


Then I did a backup of my system and installed a second 960 EVO. In the BIOS I enabled NVMe RAID and then created a RAID0 consisting of my two SSD drives.


Then when I tried to restore my system, my backup software would not see the RAID. So I tried plan B, I tried installing Windows 10 from scratch. Not surprizingly the Windows installer would not see the RAID0 either.

I tried downloading the Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers and supplying them to the Windows installer, but no luck. So what am I missing here? I need some drivers, I'm pretty sure, but what drivers?

Your laptop might be not RAID capable. There are two types of the P70's systemboars, with and without RAID features support. It depends on the laptop MTM. Provide it, please, to check out the laptop specification.

Have you tried using Samsung's NVMe drivers when installing Windows 10?  They are available for download at the bottom of Samsung's 960 EVO NVMe SSD page at
