So I'm trying to install Raid and I have 2 OCZ SOLID 3 SSDS, both 60 gb. Now I set the option as RAID in the UEFI bios and yes it detects both HD's but, upon showing the disks, it shows my DVD drive and then the SSD> I also don't see CTRL+F or any CTRL+K for Raid installations, could anyone help or give advice please. This is my first AMD motherboard and I'm thinking I have to install the RAID drivers during Windows 7 installation and then I'll have to reboot again and it'll pop up. Is that correct?

After you set your ports to RAID mode in UEFI you then save your changes and reboot.
Then during POST you press CTRL+F to enter the RAID BIOS.
After you enter RAID BIOS you select your 2 SSDs and create your RAID array.
After you create your RAID array you save your settings and reboot to the CD/DVD drive that contains your Windows installation disk and begin the Windows installation process.

Let Windows install its default RAID drivers during the installation process.
You can then install the latest AMD RAID drives after installation is complete.

I'm having a similar problem.. trying to get RAID 0 to work... What is all this nonsense about using flash drives to get files off the MB Drivers disk?

fully agree with you. this "upload drivers from flash drive" is completely nonsense. before I had sabertooth X58 and to make raid on that board is so easy peasy. Sabertooth 990FX it is like 2 steps back. and this is not only problem. If you choose sector size 1024 2048 ir 4096 you will never instal windows. so dissapointed.
