P5WD2 and Sata

I'm having a problem with installing sata drives.
I have P5WD2 mobo with 74 Raptor connected to Sata 1 and another 2 drives seagate barracuda connected to Sata 3 and Sata 4. I've created RAID0 with 2 barracuda's and left Raptor intact. I also got 2 cdroms on primary IDE. The hard drives can be seen in Bios and when installinng WinXP 64 it says there are no drives. I tried loading ITE8211 driver for raid controller but HDs still won't show up. I tried looking at different boards but people say pretty much the same, press F6, load the driver and here you go. Nothing useful.
Can anyone help please.

  1. Nevermind, just figured out that I had to install ICH7R driver. Why would they supply ITE8211 on the mobo CD then if the one you need is actually ICH7R???
  2. Ok, now the installation sees HDs but the blue screen appears when it starts copying the files. It says:
    A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. I tried searching it, someone said that it has to do with settings in BIOS. Anybody had this experience or know how to fix it? I've been playing with BIOS settings for a while now but still the same result all the time.
    Help would be appreciated.
  3. List your system specs, everything even the PSU.
