I need help with a raid setup

Hello, i'm trying to setup raid one on my x8sas super micro board, using 2 hitachi 500 bg sata drives, windows x64 pro. This is the problem: I go into bios enable raid enhanced - set to intel - configure raid utility, make the arrays raid 1 then go to setup windows, I get to the point of putting the floppy for intel x64 sata controller driver that loads then i get a bsod. I have tried different drives and just about everything I can think of, I called supermicro and they said the HDD i have might be desktop grade and not good enough for raid??? I have never heard that before. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks
PS if you need more info let me know ill drop my full specs

  1. Don't know about Hitachi, but try googling TLER, and it'll give you some leads on why you need HDDs that the mfr says are RAID-compatible. WD RIAD HDDs are "RE" models.
  2. I switched to a burned x64 pro xp install disc and that seems to work now.... so weird
