Windows 7: New Win 7 Install after RAID SETUP- What Driver??

New Win 7 Install after RAID SETUP- What Driver??

Hi there. I am pulling my hair out and hope someone can help me. I have an ASUS Motherboard M4A87TD EVO, got two new hard drives, and changed the BIOS settings to a RAID configuration.

After exiting BIOS, I loaded the WIN 7 (64 bit) installation disc, got thru the first few prompts of installation, and the pop up error menu shows up. " NO SIGNED DRIVER FOUND, PLEASE INSERT CD/DVD/ FLOPPY, bla bla bla ", and my RAID configuration does not appear in the box as a hard drive for Windows to be installed into.

After researching on the web and contacting ASUS, I still don't understand. From what I can gather, it is a driver that will make THE INSTALLATION PROCESS RECOGNIZE MY RAID configuration. Apparently, it must be downloaded onto a thumbdrive and installed
"during" the Windows installation.

Now...WHAT DRIVER??? WHERE??? WHO??? WHAT?? HOW?? Is it specific to this type of installation, or manufacturer specific? Asus or Windows? A third party??

Sorry, I am so aggravated. Please help.

Thanks

Thanks Theog. However, I was on that same site and the list of downloads are scary. So I picked RAIDEXPERT, but apparently that was not it. Sorry, I am still lost. What driver???
