Hello every1, i have the Asus P6T6 revolution and if you know this motherboard, ull very well know it has no IDE and Floppy controller built into it. Im about to configure 2 SAS 500gb hard drives in a raid 0 config and installing vista 64 home premium, will i have to make a boot disk of some sort to install the raid drivers when installing vista, or will vista have the drivers i need built in. Ive tryed to get the drivers i need onto a flash drive just in case but was unsuccessful in that regard cause u have to use Asus's makedisk utility and for some reason wont lemme put the drivers on a flash drive.

Can I please get some of the communities point of views.

Vista has the RAID drivers on disk.
It should auto-detect your RAID array, assuming it's properly configured in BIOS.

You have the option of installing the RAID driver via a flash drive, floppy, and CD/DVD. Use whichever media is best for you.

Right click on the chipset drivers you downloaded and choose "Extract Files..." with WinRAR.

Click on "Custom (advanced)" after Vista EULA during Vista Install.
You will need to click on where it says "Load Driver" and then you will plug in the flash drive and browse to the folder. Then click the OK button.
