Asus X299 Rampage Encore and Dimm.2 Raid 0 - Windows Bootable

Level 7

My system is:
Intel i9 10980x
Asus Rampage VI Extreme Encore
CORSAIR Force MP600 500gb X2

I would appreciate for help, I want to create raid 0 of the two ssd in dimm.2 and install windows 11 on it.

I tried everything I know, and every time I got stuck making the RAID 0 array bootable in bios.

Here is a link to the ASUS Raid configuration guide:

Do you have a USB stick or DVD with the Raid drivers on it for the Win 11 installation?

Its not possible to make a Hardware RAID on the DIMM.2 and boot from it. On SATA Ports its possible but only SSDs and HDDs.

On the DIMM.2 its only possible to make a Software RAID in Windows, after u have installed Windows on other Drive, but u still cant boot from it. Or u buy the VROC Key and 2 Intel drives then u can make it bootable. Good luck.

More or less the same performance.
Shouldn't it almost double the performance in raid0?

You'll need at least 2 Intel SSD first. VROC on X299 limited support only Intel SSD.
