Hey, I went out and bought this MB today and wow is it giving me a headache. So the first thing is I try to update the BIOS to the latest version ( 7D20v25 )and I get this message: So I can't update to see if it fixes a Raid controller problem which doesn't seem to have RAID as an option in SATA Optane Mode. But It will detect the disks in the BIOS.. I want to boot off the M.2 and have the two SATA 240GB drives in a RAID 0 array but they don't seem selectable unless the SATA option is set to AHCI. I don't know what to do!

I don't have this board, but my understanding is that Intel's B560 chipset doesn't support that type of RAID (as citay pointed out last year).
I haven't used RAID in long time, but if you aren't using it for boot drive then you could presumably setup something similar to RAID such as Storage Spaces in Windows Pro.

@tomfole153802d1 can you check if the BIOS file you download from MSI is only 0 Kb? If that's the case, you might wanna re-download again.
It's supposed to be 32MB which display as 32 Megabytes = 33,554,432 Bytes in BIOS M-flash menu
