Rebuilding a RAID 0 array

Hi you guys,
I have lost my original RAID 0 array, so I want rebuild this array and do a Win7 clean installation. That's why I need your help. At this moment I'm using 1 HDD only in AHCI mode and the other one is inactive and empty. Please let me tell you what I think to do.
1.- I put the BIOS in RAID mode.
2.- Reboot and by using CTRL-I I can enter into the RAID page and construct my Stripping Array.
3.- I put Win7 in my DVD and reboot.
4.- Install Win7.
However I have a few doubts.
- Sequence 1-4 is correct?
- Need I RAID drivers in some media or in a booteable USB FD? I suspect that not, but I'm not sure.
Thanks a lot in advance for helping!
My Notebook:
msi GT780DXR-446US
i7-2670 QM
2x WD Scorpio 750GB 7200rpm HDDs (both recognized by the BIOS)
GTX 570M 3GB GDDR5
BD burner
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bits

    Thank you so much nhasian, I appreciate it! F6 is correct, but for some reason (I don't Know) in my notebook is CTRL I.
  3. ctrl I is for the bios, during install windows will ask for drivers when you press F6, or you may be able to install drivers during the win7 location selection process
