Hello. I just had a turn-key system sent to me:
Win 7 Prof
ASUS Sabertoth x79 Mobo
Intel i7 6 core 3.2
1 SS drive @ 250 gb
2 Seagate drives @ 3 TB each
However the company forgot to set up my RAID 1.
I have 2 Seagate 3 TB drives in the box set up currently as AHCI that the system currently reads as separate drives.
When go back into the BIOS and set up the RAID 1, I get BSOD, ofcourse, which is a known issue.
So I decided to do clean re install after setting up the RAID 1 in the bios. Windows loads the install disk but gives me the "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing...." song and dance.
Does this mean I need to install the Intel RAID drivers prior to Win 7 reinstall?? (I thought this wasn't necessary with Win 7)
I went ahead and downloaded the drivers form the Intel site: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Sear...ntel%C2%AE+RST
i put them on USB stick, (I don't own a floppy because I am from 2012) but the USB disk is not present during installation.
Any input would be appreciated!!!
