I can't get my laptop to pick up the disk and I don't have a 2nd disk drive in my pc.

Then why don't you download the drivers and put them on a flash drive?

Now I am getting: Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu. What next?

You have configure the raid correct? 2 ssd'd in a stripe set. Boot to windows and and it should ask you where to install. It does not see drivers. So you point to the drivers that you downloaded and then you get that error message?

Yeah, I followed the tutorial on the Asus page, pointed out the drivers and was greeted with that message.

I think the problem is that the bios doesn't see both the raid config and my extra 2tb 7200 HDD. Any idea on how to fix this?
Edit: could my stripe (128kb) be too big?

You should definitely not have your 2tb drive connected while you do the install. 128kb is fine.

I finally figured it out. The magic trick was switching the ports on the motherboard that the ssds were plugged into. Thanks for all your help!
