Windows 7: Win7 Reformat with Raid0

08 Mar 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 & 64 -(Boot Camped Snow Leopard on a Mac Mini)

Again, please fill in your complete system specs (including your motherboard model).

If I read you correctly, you are trying to load Vista 64 RAID drivers on a Win7 32 bit installation? There's a good chance this is why the drivers won't load.

Let's clarify one other point: I've been assuming you are using hardware RAID (from your motherboard's RAID controller)n and not software RAID from within Windows 7. Is this correct?

If I read you correctly, you are now able to see your RAID array in setup? If so, proceed with formatting and installing Win 7.
