I am trying to get a raid setup on this otherboard and cant get a 64bit windows 7 installed. the disk that came with it has the drivers of 64bit and 32bit but only the 32bit ones are working during the boot. i have also tried deownloading the ones off of the site And still doe the same thing. if anyone has the drivers please place me a link for me to download them.
or any ideas of why the drivers will not load to do the install for windows 7 64bit.
Thanks in advance

do you have a 64bit processor? its sufficient to install the 32bit drivers for the installation to complete.

Well i created the raid 0 array which is all scene in the bios. popped in the dvd of my windows 7 used my laptop to move the drivers to my usb with the 64bit and the 32 bit drivers. after i loaded them up from the installer and the 32bit ones work but after i load windows up it blue screens. the 64bit ones do not show at all. i downloaded them right off of msi website so i know they are most up to date drivers and working

Extract the exe to a usb drive and use the 13-4_vista_win7_win8_32-64_raid\Packages\Drivers\SBDrv\SB8xx\RAID\W864A folder when selecting a driver.

You may need to run the setup exe and yank the usb while it is running, else it deletes the temp dir you extracted to.
