Clean Install Windows 7 Professional (Raid 0)

Just today received my upgrade Version Windows 7 Professional from Microsoft.
Would like to do a clean install of Windows 7 Professional (64 bit) replacing the present Vista Home Premium (32bit).
System as presently configured: two Western Digital WD5001AALS 500GB drives with Intel Raid 0 Volume (931 GB).
Please advise as to the best way to proceed.

Win7 is largely allergic to RAID. None of the standard troubleshooting steps work with RAID either, so we are at a loss here to help until someone familar with the dated RAID technology (rarely) steps forward.

Can you dissolve the RAID config and set one HD to AHCI to install Win7? The AHCI (or SATA/IDE) drivers should be in the booted Win7 installer, or they are on the Support Downloads page for your model mobo.
