So I need to set up a Raid0 for one of my clients and been strugling to disable the CSM in order to progress in the configuration. I have also disabled the Secure boot but they seemingly always revert to default setting. Anyway to fix this ? Thank you

If this is for a client, then it is also your "due diligence" to tell them that RAID0 is a bad idea in 99.99% of the attempted uses. You also need to attempt to sell them an automated backup implementation.

What drives are you working with?
And what use case?

"have to do the job" does not negate a pushback on a boss's dumb idea.

"Hey, boss. Here's a better idea, that is faster, safer, and cheaper over the long run"

WE have warned the customer. He is the one that insisted the raid 0.

Its 2 ssd M.2 Evo 970 of Samsung . The Board is X399 Aorus pro of gigabyte

Pushing back against a dumb idea from the boss. We've all done that, to various levels of success.

RAID 0 with Samsung NVMe?
That may even be slightly slower than individual drives.
This, from a couple of years ago: https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/samsung-950-pro-256gb-raid-report,4449.html

The benchmarks look awesome.
Actual user facing benefit? Not.

Did they give you any reason for the desire of the RAID 0?
There are limited use cases where it is faster, but those are few and far between.
