Hello! First full build. Key components:

  • ASUS TUF Gaming x570 Plus (WiFi)
  • (OS/Apps) Western Digital WD BLACK SN750 NVMe M.2 2280 500GB
  • (Storage/desired RAID 1) WD Blue 3.5" HDD 6TB
  • AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
Running the OS on the NVMe and everything runs smoothly. Initialized the HDDs in Windows and assigned them drive names. Followed ASUS instructions for setting up RAID (setting up the SATA configuration to RAID and changing part of the boot, etc etc). Reboot, enter BIOS again - the ability to "create array" greys out and won't let me setup. I spent time on the phone w/3 different ASUS techs who all basically had me do the same thing outlined in the manual. Anybody have any insight as to how I can get this setup properly? This is all pretty new for me (despite tons of research) and I'm pulling my hair out! Happy to provide pictures of BIOS settings if that'd help anyone.
