Upgrading from WinXp with existing Raid1 to Windows 7 Prof 64 Bit

Hello!

I have an existing windows XP with a Raid 1 (BIOS) configuration on an Asus Motherboard.
How do I go on upgrading to Windows 7 64 Bit?

Do I just do a clean install and provide AMD RAID Controller driver during installation?

Thank you!
Would that make my raid1 work for win7 as well?

Hello! I've tried installation but it stops after loading setup files.
Now I tried my SATA Configuration to be IDE- it shows my 2 Raid drives but says Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk has an MBR Partition Table. on EFI Systems, Windows can only be installed to GPT disk.

How will I proceed?
