It looks like the motherboard won't support both types of disks.

Thanks.



What do you mean, it won't support a single, non-RAID disk and others in a RAID array?

On my X370 board, I have an NMVe SSD as the OS drive, a single SSD as a data drive, and two SSDs in a RAID 0 array. Works fine.

Intel's and AMD's RAID configuration are quite different, AMD's is more difficult to use and will classify a single drive as a "RAID drive", although it isn't.

I suggest using the RAIDXpert2 software that runs in Windows to create and administer the RAID array, rather than the BIOS and UEFI Shell method.

The thought of software based raids bothers me.  This thought goes back long before raid was available of PCs.

I have decided to just use a data drive and the 2nd drive for backups.

Thanks you.
