I'm assuming this isn't the boot drive, correct? If so, what drive is the boot drive? Also, what OS are you using?

Re: P70 work station RAID HELP

Since the OS was loaded on the M.2 drive before setting up a RAID array, you more than likely will need to install the Intel RSTe RAID driver.  The Intel RSTe driver for P70 can be found here (http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/LAPTOPS-AND-NETBOOKS/THINKPAD-P-SERIES-LAPTOPS/THINKPAD-P...

 

Once you set up the RAID, you may need to boot the OS into Safe Mode to install the Intel RSTe driver to get around the BSOD issue.

Re: P70 work station RAID HELP

Did you set up the RAID 1 before or after booting into Safe Mode and reinstalling the Intel RSTe driver?

 

You should also be able to set up a RAID 1 from within the Intel RSTe management utility from within Windows OS.

I setup the raid up after booting in safe mode and installing the Intel RSTe driver

Try setting up the raid first and then boot into safe mode and install the Intel RSTe driver.

Re: P70 work station RAID HELP

Are you opposed to setting up RAID first and using recovery media to reload the OS on the main drive?
