Download the Vista or 7 drivers for the Adaptec controller and put them on a flash drive. When you load setup and get to the drive partitioning and formatting step, click the button called Load Driver. Pick the driver from your USB flash drive and setup should then be able to see both of your hard drives.

BAM, that did the trick... Windows 7 is up and running.. y wouldn't it accept the driver of the CD tho? I checked and its the same driver that I downloaded from Adaptec
