How to install windows 7 on my raid 0 setup Asus sabertooth x79

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am having problems with installing Windows 7 on my computer, with 2 Ocz Vertex 4 256gb ssd's in raid 0.
When i come to the install screen i cant see any drive to install it on but the raid 0 volume has been made, i watched something on the internett with a guy using a driver from a usb to see the raid 0 volume he went into the custom installation and then picked load driver then the usb then driver then installed the driver and then he could see the hard drive. Gsata64 was the name of the file but i am wondering what driver should i get for my Asus sabertooth x79

Can anyone help me i would appreciate the help

System spec

Asus sabertooth x79
Intel Core i7-3930k
2 ocz vertex 4 ssd's

You need to make a usb driver stick first.

Go to here and download Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology enterprise Driver Software V3.5.0.1092 . Right click on the file and choose "extract all" Open the extracted file. Go to Driver / AsMakeDisk. Click on that or Asus Setup and it will walk you through.
You can also use the disk that came with the mobo but those are your latest drivers.

When installing Windows7 x64, use custom install / install drivers then use the usb stick. Your RAID array should appear.
