I also run RAID 0 with the enbedded Adaptec RAID controller. I could not find a reasonable answer on the question of "Windows 7 64 bit on Dell Precision workstation 670 and RAID" so I tried several things and found a solutions that works. 1. Clean installed Windows 7 OS 64 bit on New IDE drive, plugged into IDE Drive Connection on motherboard. 2. Installed two (2) 1 TB HITACHI SATA Enterprise drives, plugged into Serial ATA Connector 0 and 1 on motherboard. 3. Using Controll Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management - Format, I formatted both drives, that takes a lot of time. 4. From the internet -- http://download.cnet.com/Serial-ATA-Adaptec-CERC-SATA1-... I downloaded: 1. DELL CERC SATA 1.5/6ch RAID Controller 2. DELL CERC SATA 1.5/6ch RAID Management Device The Dell Precison Workstation 670 works as configured. RAID 0 works as configured. The 670 is a real workhorse, like a big dump truck that can handle big loads. It is not a Porsche Boxter!
