hi every one ...
mobo is asus P5Q ..three hard disk : sata II 320 GB WD ( one green one blue)..
http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_775/P5Q/
WDC WD3200AAJS
WDC WD3200AVVS

another 250 GB sata II WD with win 7 32 bit on it ...
working all hards with IDE mode for years ... and set up alot of windows copies on it ...

trying to change to raid0 mod with tow WD 320 GB hard drivers ...
so i disconnect the 250 GB hard and make an array with those 320 GB at raid 0 .
start to setup and problems appear from every where ...

on thing in common ...at installing processed after the first restart
(( the computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error . windows instillation cannot proceed , to install windows click ok to restart the computer then restart the installation ))

after restart the windows sometimes log in and give me BSOD .. and sometimes give me BOSD after the log in logo disappear ..

NTFS.sys .... fmgr.sys memory management ( blank ) BSOD ... so ...
turn to ACHI mod and give up with raid 0 ...
again alot of problems and error's .
back to raid mod without set an array .. the same problem ... couldn't finish the windows set up and if its finished ( somehow) i had i BSOD after few minutes ..

i try the following... google alots for this ....
try to load drivers from USP flash while installing and after the first reboot and with repairing windows ...
driver from asus mobo page ( unzipped )
- try to check disk .. nothing found using HDD re-generator
- checking memory ...
partition ... unpartition the HDD ...
safe mode dont work stuck on (calsspnp.sys sometimes disk.sys )then BSOD or just restart ..
checking the hardware ( HDD -sata cables - etc ) all work fine
try to setup from USP and DVD ( sometimes wont setup with USP asking for bootable partition )
bios is updated to last version from mobo page ..
doing some hard disk testes with Harins Boot CD ...


i still think that its something about drivers ... but i didnt find the way to feed windows 7 64 bt with the correct drivers ...
or something in compatibility .. mother board is difinitly support raid and ACHI .. dont know how to make sure from the hard disk !!
hope that someone could solve this ... or give me an advice ...
