Windows 7: Win 7 Reinstalled - can't find my old storage RAID 0

Win 7 Reinstalled - can't find my old storage RAID 0

Hi all,

I recently had to reinstall Windows 7 on my SSD and can't get the fresh install to "see" my RAID 0 array that I've been using for storage. Here's my setup:

SSD - Windows 7 =x64
Samsung Spinpoint F3 (2) - RAID 0
Biostar TA790GX 128M - using hardware RAID

The hardware is all the same, not one thing has been changed except that the SSD now has a new Windows install.

The BIOS can see the RAID array but the fresh install of Windows can't. I'm at a loss. When I installed Windows, I left the BIOS settings on RAID.

Thank you for any help.

Figured it out. The mobo driver wasn't installing the RAID drivers. I had to go to device manager and click install driver, then manually tell it to search the install CD. All is up an running!
