I'm having difficulties installing Windows 7 onto my RAID volume using a ASUS Sabertooth P67 motherboard. I have 2x Samsung 840 SSDs plugged into the 2x black Intel 6gbit sockets.
I've done the following:
- Updated the motherboard BIOS to the latest version (3602)
- Ensured that the SATA option in the UEFI BIOS is set to RAID mode (screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/f04VMbn.png)
- Created a RAID0 volume in the Intel RAID setup (CTRL+I) and ensured it is set to bootable
- Downloaded the appropriate Intel SATA RAID Drivers and put them on my memory stick with the Windows 7 SP1 install image.
I enter the Windows 7 setup, and it asks me to provide the driver - I provide the driver and it still says that it can't find any drives to install on. If I switch the BIOS to use AHCI mode then I can continue but then I lose my RAID setup.
What am I missing?
Edit: Turned out to be a bad installation image. Grabbed a fresh one and it worked fine. Weird.
