I'm trying to install the Windows Server 2008 on my home system to test it out. I'm using Gigabyte GA-K8NS-939 with an onboard Raid Controller. I've got the Raid setup and enabled for both drives in the Bios and it mounts/boots/runs fine in XP Pro and Server 2k3.

But when I'm on the installation screen for 2k8, it only recognizes 1 drive. This would be fine because its raid 0, its suppose to be only 1 drive. BUT!! It really ONLY sees 1 drive. I have 2 80gb SATA drives, and it only sees 1 80gb SATA drive. It has an option to browse for drives for the raid device ( like the F6 option in 2k3 or XP-Pro, but the 2k3/XP drives weren't recognized at all.

I've been posting on MS Forums with no luck, just curious if anyone else has ran into this problem as well or heard of new drivers for 2k8?
