The horror… The horror…

Take pity… Please help… Save me from more of this… The same “CD/DVD drivers missing” msg as so many others.

AMD Phenom II 955 Black
Gigabyte 990XA-UD3
2 - Seagate, 2TB, SATA, ST2000DL003
4 x 4GB Corsair Vengeance, DDR3 1600
2 LiteOn DVD Burners - iHAS124-04
HIS IceQ Radeon 6790
Cougar 760W Pwr supply
..and Windows 7, 64bit, Genuine OEM

If I set the BIOS to default values, Win7 installs fine. (Strangely though, after OS install BIOS reveals peripherals set to IDE)

If I change BIOS values to RAID1…
1) Scrolling white bar “Windows is loading files”
2) “Language” , Enter
3) “Install now”, Enter
4) “Setup is Starting”
5) About 3seconds later I get “Select the driver to be installed” with a sub-window on top of that.

6) Gigabyte explains similar (but not exact).
7) I remove OS disk, insert mobo disk…. Nothing…. Machine only sees OS boot disk.

At your mercy,

when the BIOS is set to RAID1 does the RAID controller see the DVD-Rom

Hi Stoph, usually, when installing an additional driver ( like for raid ) you need to have this driver on a separate disk as the install will not look over the motherboard disk to find driver!!

Try copying the raid drivers onto a separate CD and then continue with install.

When you clear cmos, the default bios option is always ide for backwards compatibility with older hdd's.

Any particular reason trying to raid?, only really useful in enterprise situation where LOTS of data is being transferred regularly onto and off said raid setup ( server's ), on a common desktop, only increases the chances for more data to be lost should the raid array fail!!!!!

Good luck :-)
