I cant seem to find any way to switch these two SSDs out of their RAID0 configuration. There does not seem to be any option for it in BIOS. I'm hoping someone here knows how to swicth a Predator Triton 700's SSDs into an AHCI configuration.

    Hi all,

    Unfortunately, theirs no option in the BIOS to change it to AHCI configuration.

    We apologized for any inconveniences this may cause.

    I'm having the same problem. I recently managed to delete the existing raid0 configuration and installed Windows on one of the drives. However, BIOS still reports that the drives are in "RAID" mode, and neither of the drives is visible on Linux (booted from USB). (The messages I get from dmesg are "Found 2 remapped NVMe devices." and "Switch your BIOS from RAID to AHCI mode to use them." ) Any actual help how to do the switch would be appreciated.

    Gosh! I feel lucky here. I was all set to go for RAID configured laptop, but switched to non raid one since I felt raid was an overkill for a laptop. Saved by a whisker...

    I am curious. Why wouldn't you want to use the raid 0 configuration? I am not against your choice of course, i am just curious about the reasoning behind your preference.

    Thanks if you will answer, since i have the same machine and find nothing wrong with raid 0.
