As I also found out the W7 install allows you to browse for drivers just in case it is unable to find what it needs to get the install job done. I put my drivers for the nvidia raid and motherboard on to a usb flash drive and just pointed the installer to them during the installation process and it all went smooth.

7 won't recognize raid 0 drives as one volume

I just finished my build and have attempted to install 7. I set up the RAID array in the bios, it says that it's fine. When I get to the screen where you choose which disk to install the OS to it shows both 150g disks independently instead of a 300g volume. Anybody got a clue

Pop your raid drivers onto some external media (flash drive etc.) point windows to them and it will install fine.
