Windows 7: Installing windows 7 on fresh PC

What if I wanted to use RAID in the future? Would I need to install the SATA/RAID controller drivers at install?

I am doing a build this week so just wondering. The manual isn't clear on this. It says to do an F6 at install for Vista and install the driver.

What if I want the options to use RAID in the future without a new install?

I once had a similar problem installing 7 on a formated HD, and my problems where:

1st time i had that problem - I had to phisically unplug all my hd´s and leave only the one that will receive W7.

2nd time - I completly forgot that the drivers inside Mobo´s dvd were compacted in rars. So i had to make a copy to a flash drive, unrared.

Cheers.

Thanks for the tips. I will watch for those problems. I have not spent much time with RAR files. I will especially watch for that.

Your welcome. If you arent sure wich drivers/controllers are to run, just unpack them all sata/raid drivers at once to the same media and that should work.

Cya.

It's up and running like a champ. I guess I need to update my system specs. lol

This Core 2 Quad 8200 is much faster than my Phenom X3 8400.

Windows 7 must support AHCI mode because it detected the drives at setup.

Thanks to everyone for the help. Glad I didn't need more. I will be working for a day or two to replace my workstation and get my 2 LCDs hooked up.

That's the greatest thing in the world (building a computer) I have wanted to do one from scratch for a long time. It's a good time. I better get going on cable management and my 3 more case fans.

Thanks again to everyone in this thread and another I started for the help!
