So I already got my raid set up and all, went to bios, enabled raid, selected the ones I want ( two 120gb ssd intel 520 series ) and when at the screen to install windows they dot show up, I put in my motherboard cd to install the raid drivers and find and install them but right after that I get this error... "To continue installation, use the Load Driver option to install 32-bit and signed 64-bit drivers. Installing an unsigned 64-bit device driver is not supported and might result in an unusable windows installation"... What do I do to fix this??? All help is appreciate guys! If it helps my motherboard model Is in my signature..

Go look at the MB manufacturer's site for newer raid drivers.

I've had this happen recently on several installs of Win7. In one case, what it really wanted was the mobos USB 3 drivers (this one was by far the most frustrating and baffling, and yes, also in this case, installing to 2 SSDs in RAID 0). Another, Intel RST drivers. Have also had cases with RAID configs where I needed to use third party software to set up partition info / format for Win7 to see it correctly for the install and not ask for drivers.

Hope that helps.
