Clean Install HD recognition
I've looked at a lot of other threads and I see similar problems, but not identical. I haven't found a solution amongst the rest of the forum. So, I'm doing a clean install of Windows7 Pro (x32) from a new HD. I want to put the OS on it's own HD, but in addition, I run 2 additional Raid1 Arrays. For this I have 2 raid controllers. The OS HD is being controlled by the ICH10R raid controller, despite not being part of a RAID array. I've been running Win XP this way for some time, and it's fine. No problems. When I go to set up Windows 7, It sees and recognizes all my HD's, including the arrays that I have set up, and if I just select the drive I want and hit "Install" it'll start installing, but I need to load RAID drivers, so I have to go in and select "Install Drivers". I install them all from a USB drive (not a CD drive, which seems to be the most critical error, people not replacing the install CD once they loaded their RAID drivers). Once I load the drivers in, it now gives me the 0x80300001 Can't install on this disc. Why is this happening after I load the RAID drivers but not before?
The MoBo I'm using is a Gigabyte GA-EP45T-UD3P Rev 1.0, and I need to load the ICH10R and the JSATA drivers, as each is controlling a seperate array.
I did try to unhook every HD except the install Drive. I don't know what else to do on this. It's probably something stupid, but I can't figure it out.

You need the SATA/Raid drivers for your board download them from Gigabyte.
They will be zipped you need to "extract" them to a flash drive make sure you have the flash drive plugged in when you boot up the computer and when you are at the screen to setup hard drive partitions choose additional drivers and point to the files on the flash drive and once it loads those drivers your drives will appear.
This whole process is much easier since the new partitioner that came out with Vista you used to have to load the drivers from floppy or have them slipstreamed into the install disk but now you can use a flash drive much easier good luck!
