Windows 7: ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe

28 Dec 2009   #1

Windows 7


Has anyone had any joy installing Windows 7 Ultimate x86 onto a ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe?

I have a RAID0 configured using the Silicon Raid chip. I've had this running under XP, XP64, Vista64 previously.

During the install I get to the prompt (the old F6 prompt) to load drivers, I have download some drivers from ASUS, Silicon and MS but none seem to work.

I don't think it is the RAID0 that is really an issue as I also have another disk connect to the Silicon chip, that is not configured for RAID but it fails to detect that drive as well.

I've followed a few threads on here and other websites, but I cannot seem to get around this.

I've tried:
Silicon Image - Support | Search Results
Microsoft Update Catalog Some of these, but there are loads.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have an extra drive you could test by turning off the RAID to see if it will load without it. I seem to remember something about Nvidia drivers if you have an Nvidia chipset on that board.

I have installed to an A7N Deluxe, but not with Raid configured. Still get the F6 prompt but just boot through it.
