New build trying to load OS

Hello,
i have a new build, just put together and trying to load the OS. it is a i5 2500K, OCZ 60 GB SSD, 750 GB Barracuda, Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3, 8GB G SKILL and i have done as my manual says and enabled RAID(XHD).
I put my win 7 PRO disc in the DVD drive but it goes through the motions to "loading operating system..." and the cursor drops below and nothing happens

What have i got wrong?

  1. Why would you enable raid? You don't have two drives to raid together.

    Disconnect the barracuda hdd and install windows with just the ocz ssd connected. After you install windows, connect the hdd again.

    Actually in the Gigabyte manual, that is what it said do, but I had to do as you said to get it loaded.

    thanks a lot!
