I had to restore windows 7 home prenium 64 bit twice now because after restarting (I didn't even installed something between the restarts) it said windows could not load and ran a repair sequeence and could not find anything. But when I restore windows 7 to the earliest point (with out any drivers installed) seems to work.
you dont need the Rapid Storage Technology Driver Software unless you really wanted a matrix raid. im betting you just wanted all your stuff on a single hard drive.

just skip it.
a bios update might fix it but i doubt it since its not listed in the notes.
