Windows 7: Installation Won't Reboot

12 Sep 2009   #11

windows 7 64bit

Hi guys,

Just wondering if anyone had a solution to this? I'm experiencing the same thing with near enough the same setup. Seems the installation program is happy with the raid drivers but they're not good enough to boot from.

I've tried the XP ones aswell and had no luck. I've used older ones from Asus's website, I've used new ones direct from AMD but still no luck.

Windows 7 64bit

I'm bumping this.

I have the Seagate 1.5TB drives myself. I've been trying to install Windows 7 64bit onto a Raid 0 for around 3 days now. I've tried multiple raid drivers. Windows 7, xp, and vista, 32 bit and 64 bit. Still getting this error: "Windows could not prepare the computer to reboot....". I'm getting very frustrated can anyone help me?

The install screen is reading the Raid as a 3TB drive, which is good. I assume this means it is set up right in BIOS so I don't know if the problem resides in the driver or the hard drives.

I'd remove the RAID and one HD, set SATA controller to AHCI, install to single HD.

After install, plug back in the other HD to use forr data or storage including for a Win7 Backup image.
