I have no experience with RAID so not sure how I can help but I think that you need to install the Raid drivers first before you install, is that correct?

Hi Smother,

First of all, please do not bump your posts, especially after such a short period of time.

That said, back to your problem. Both Vista and W7 use the same installation interface, and offer the opportunity to install RAID drivers if they are required. Although the installation disks contain many such drivers, the list is by no means exhaustive and you may find that you need to provide these drivers for either Vista or W7 (or both). In my case, I had to provide them for Vista, but they were included in W7. Should you need to provide driver(s), then the Vista ones should work.

Having said that, you are obviously progressing through the installation as you mention the 2nd restart. It is possible that your W7 disk needs cleaning because it sounds like one or more files were corrupted when they were copied to your HDD during installation. Try that - you will need to reinstall W7 - and let us know if this helps.

sorry for that

back to my topic, yeah i know that Vista no need to load drivers for RAID0, so assuming same with W7, i already use this W7 installation disk on 2 PC one on lappy and one on my other desktop. but when i try to use on RAID0 config i have no success, but Vista works flawlessly.

tnx!

Hi Smother,

That's OK, just wanted to point it out for future reference.

Here is a link to the Gigabyte page for your motherboard: GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - Driver - GA-EP45C-DS3R (rev. 1.0) Download and save all the files onto a USB memory stick (both Vista and W7 can access this type of media during installation). When you need to provide the driver during installation, simply browse for it and allow W7 to load it. You will know when you have the correct driver because the HDD will be correctly identified.

W7 installs on a RAID0 as normal. It sounds like you have a bad disk. I agree with dwarf. Maybe your DL of the installer was corrupted.

what do you mean "bad disk" the HDD or the CD burned with W7?

i think not either of them. the HDD now is running on Vista on RAID0 config and the CD installer is the same CD is use to my other PC and lappy, cept this PC with RAID0
