Your motherboard came with Raid drivers. Insert the floppy it came with (or get it off the net and copy it to a flash drive), then locate the driver in Vista setup, and away you go.

Your system specs would help us help you.

Vista does not need raid drivers installed, they're built in.

Enter bios, set your harddrives as raid, reboot enter raid set up and configure your array.

I have vista installed and with my old ASUS board i still needed to install the RAID drivers for it to see the HDD's. But luckily with vista you don't "need" a floppy to install them you can also install them off of a thumb/flash drive. You will have to go to the website to get them if they are not on your motherboard cd. You'll have to explore it and find something dealing with Fasttrack or Promise drivers. depends what your motherboard uses for the RAID system.

Are these new drives?

After setting up your partition, you need to make sure that the partition is set as "active" otherwise Vista won't detect it. Another possible alternate install method would be to install via debug mode by hitting F8 when the windows installer in loading.

Overall, system specs would help a lot in figuring this one out.

Try unpacking the NVIDIA chipset drivers first on another computer. Just run the exe install file. it will unpack to the C:/NVIDIA folder. Then when it asks you to continue with install, hit cancel. Then take the unpacked folder and put it on a USB. From there you should have the RAID drivers. That is how I got the SATA drivers needed to install on the laptop based on the NVIDIA chipset.
