It has been a long time since I configured RAID on an Aus board, but this is the way I think it goes:
Once you have Windows 7 installed, you'll probably want to install the full Intel Rapid Storage suite. That'll give you Intel drivers, and utilities to manage the RAID.
I've never had any trouble booting from a SATA DVD burner or BluRay drive with my Intel ICH10R SATA controller in AHCI mode. I assumed that the same would apply if the controller was in RAID mode. Is that false? (Not an experiment that I'm willing to try.)
I expect that there might have been a problem if RAID Zero had the BluRay drive connected to one of the extra Silicon Image SATA ports (E1 or E2). I don't know whether it would have been possible to boot from the Windows DVD from one of those ports without drivers. He (she/it) said that there was a problem with all 4 drives off the Intel controller, though. That's unexpected.
This whole business makes me glad that I swore off RAID a while ago. I had a RAID 10 array (four 500 MB Seagate 7200.10 drives), but I found that the annoyance exceeded the performance.
