(Note 1) Skip this step if you do not want to create RAID array on the SATA controller.
(Note 2) An M.2 PCIe SSD cannot be used to set up a RAID set either with an M.2 SATA SSD or a SATA hard
drive.
(Note 3) Refer to Chapter 1, "Internal Connectors," for the installation notices for the M.2 and SATA connectors.
