ASUS M4A785TD-M EVO problem with RAID

I have 3 HDD connected,one is IDE and two SATA. IDE is used for OS and SATAs are used as RAID 0+1 for storage.
Trying many times to install Ubuntu from CD,but during installation I got the error that one of files is corrupted, check your cd drive or hdd drive.
Tried to write the CD on different PCs,even created a boot USB with installation - the same.
I checked the HDD drive-no any errors...
At the end I disabled the RAID option(in BIOS)- it helped ! installation went without any problems!
Can anybody give me an explanation regarding it? Why the RAID affects the Primary IDE drive?

  1. have you tried redownloading the image?
  2. yes, many times and from different sources.
    also checked the MD5 - which was right.
  3. my errors were the same like in the next topic(I do not know their HW configuration):
  4. Your RAID isn't really RAID it's fakeRAID. fakeRAID can cause all kinds of problems.

    Hardware RAID is a gazillion times better if you've got the money for it.

    Areca and 3Ware run great under Linux.

    Good luck :)
