Hello. I have two 500gb disks and i setup them to run in RAID 0 mode. I try to install windows 7 and at the 2nd restart ( 1st time use configuration in explorer) the screen goes black and doesn´t do anything.

Can anyone help solve this problem?

Did you set "Configure SATA as [RAID]" in Bios setup under "SATA Configuration"?

Hi. Thank you for reply. Yes i did the configuration of the bios, and activate intel matrix storage manager. Also i put the raid disk on bios in first place. The setup of windows reconize my raid disk and allows me to install until it finish and restart. When it restarts shows the logo os loading windows and stops ina black screen. The DVD is good, try to install in other pc and worked fine.

Recent move, i try to install vista ultimate x64 and worked just fine, so im thinking about drivers, but motherboard drivers or SO drivers? Should i install an updated version of intel matrix or should i try to use another way to config the raid setup?

Thank you for the help...

best regards!

You need to preload the raid drivers preinstalling Win7. As I never read about this in your posts.

Why RAID-0? Striping is never good (except for speed which is superfluous compared to loss of data in event of just one died disk). Anyway, while in installation, in the page where you choose harddisk to install, there should be a button (or is it a menu entry) that will allow you to insert a storage device (flashdisk is preferable) and load storage device driver off it.
