I have just installed windows 7 on my 64g corsair SSD with no problems. However, when I try to access my old raid0 with 2 1TB HDD's, windows asks to initialize the disk. The raid0 never had windows on it, it was just for storage. The BIOS recognizes the raid and i have all current raid drivers. Thanks for your help!

not sure about your setup, but on my asus crosshair formula 3 mobo i could not run the ssd in ahci mode and have a raid config on at the same time. so i had to boot in to my old raid drives and back up all my stuff then i put the ssd in and set it to ahci mode and formated both the drives. so you may have to do somthing similar.

i would do a google and search to see if it is possible, when i had the raid setup it would not boot to the ssd, and with ssd installed the raid would not be recognised.
