Windows 7: New install issues with AMD Mobo and Win 7 Pro

Windows Professional 7 32bit
New install issues with AMD Mobo and Win 7 Pro

Been trying for 2 days to get a new build up and running with no success. AMD X4 645 Processor, Win 7 Pro 32-bit and ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 Mobo. Have (2) Raid-1 Partitions setup, have the AMD AHCI RAID Drivers on a USB stick.

Installation starts fine, says there's no driver, prompts for my drive location, finds the stick, finds the file, runs for a long time then comes back with an error that says "No new devices could be found."

Any help would be appreciated.

Try wiping the HD's first: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Make sure you have the latest BIOS update; if so reset the CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways To Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

Check SATA controller setting in BIOS.

We see a lot of problems with RAID installs. What is the reason for wanting to run RAID? Try controlller set to AHCI with one HD plugged in if possible.

Booting issues after moving RAID from one mobo to another.
This is a bit unusual, and I've not anyone discussing this before. I changed my older MSI motherboard to a newer one. I had RAID on the old one using an expansion card; but the new mobo has a built-in RAID, so I hooked up the drives (SATA) directly to it. AFter establishing the RAID, it looks...
