When in raid 10, it see the disk, lets me partition it, click next, it installs all the files and than when it gets to "Completing Installation." I get "Windows Setup could not configure Windows to run on this computer's hardware.

When I turn raid off and just use IDE, everything installs fines and all hardware test fines.

Last year I built four Asus Sabertooth x58 computers in raid 10 with Win 7 64bit with no problems. But no matter what I do, I can not get raid 10, which is what I want, or raid 0 to install with this Asus Sabertooth z77. IS there a trick I am missing?

A couple of questions...

Did you upgrade the BIOS to the latest release using the USB BIOS flashback before installing the OS?

Did you set your disk controllers to RAID mode?

Did you install the motherboard's RAID controller(s) driver(s) in the beginning of the Windows install when you were prompted?

Yes I installed latest release using the USB BIOS flashback before installing the OS.

Did you set your disk controllers to RAID mode? Yes, and like I said, Win7 sees the disk.

Did you install the motherboard's RAID controller(s) driver(s) in the beginning of the Windows install when you were prompted? Yes, but when I did that, I would get an error saying that Windows can not be install on the disk.

Prerequisites: 1. BIOS Intel SATA -> RAID, 2. Intel ROM (Ctrl + I) setup the array, 3. Only use the Intel SATA ports on the MOBO.

If the array for some reason isn't being recognized then create a bootable Flash Drive with the OS, use the native USB ports (2.0 is best), and if needed incorporate the 'Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology Driver Software' unzipped drivers on the same Flash Drive and load them if the array is invisible (unrecognized).

I am able to go in and make it raid 0 or raid 10, Windows 7 see it, will install to it, than when it gets to "Completing Installation." I get "Windows Setup could not configure Windows to run on this computer's hardware.

Have you loaded the Intel RAID driver during Windows install?

Yes I did. But than I REALLY looking at the questions that were ask: I had put drivers on CD, so I tried Flash drive and that worked. Never had to do it that way, but on well, I can move on now. Thanks for everyones help.

I've never heard of having to do it only through a flash drive. Glad you got it figured out though!
