I got my system up and running with a RAID 0 array for the 2 SSDs. When I tried to load Windows 7 PRO 64Bit (OEM System builders) I
got to the "Needs to install CD/DVD Drivers". Searched the board but only found old posts related to Window 7 RC.
Tried setting both the DVD Drive and the Boot drive for primary boot.

Please help!

Thanks

It needs to load the RAID drivers from the DVD that came with your motherboard.

The manual said to install operating system first. Motherboard CD is windows based. Got the files from Intel
but they come in a .EXE form.

If its asking for drivers during the install, you need to have them on a USB stick or CD in order to install them during the installation of Windows.
