So i have built a computer with and ASUS M4A89GTD Pro motherboard and i wanted to setup my two 500 gb seagate hard drives in Raid 0 so i can get faster perfomance. I popped in the Motherboard driver installation CD in another computer and copied the RAID drivers onto a USB. I set up the two hard drives for raid in the bios and went ahead to install win7. I get to the setup and see no hard drives that i can install the OS to so i browse for the drivers and install them. Then i see Disk with 931.3 GB of unallocated space. I select it and click next but it gives me an error saying "Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition. See the setup log files for more information. Where can i see these log fies, and more importantly How do i get rid of this problem and install the OS??

Have you made the Array Bootable in the RAID controller BIOS?
