bump and ill try to explain the situation litte bit better.

I have a raid 0 array with 2 ssd's on ich10 controler. I also have 2 other sata controllers and 1 other sata3 controller. *gigabyte. jmicron and marvell for sata 3

I installed win7 iso to external usb flash drive with the guide given on this forum. everything works fine but when i get to win install it says cd/dvd drivers are missing. I also have a sata dvd drive on the gigabyte controller. I heard here that i should put my controllers to ahci instead of ide. I tried that, didnt work. i also disabled all my controllers expect for the raid array, still same error

FIXED! i just disabled bunch of crap @ bios and it worked. Not sure which one did it but i think it was Sata 0-3 native IDE support. It was disabled, i enabled it.
