its not freezing, just gets stuck on completing, and deosnt move forward, have also left the installation running for hours... then it crashes (i think) cose the raid0 has erros in it. i have used this disc on this pc with raid0 and a laptop (4yrs old) and no problems... i have whiped the discs using xp repair option.

hey zigzag3143, you were right about the raid config. but like i said it worked perfect with the raid config in place a few days ago, the only HW upgrade i got was a new case ( i tried unplagging the extra case usb ports) and that didnt do that much. but it worked when there was no raid config. and the hdd are not corruped. i tried using the raid drivers which i never used.. and they just give me an error + blue screen (not the onboard driver).
now all i can do is just dream of raid config :S
Win7 RC: 7100
this might help other ppl

unplug usb ports and devices, exept the mouse + keyboard

try clearing cmos

after first restart, then i goes to the "completing bit" take the disc out.. it doesnt seem to use the disc any more.

if it desont change to a bigger resolution and is stuck on completing the installation probly did work out.

and i measured my install time (when it worked) about 18mins* depending on ur pc's specs.

and if any one has any idea on what i could try to get raid0 working again please post
