post #4541 of 12349
Hey guys! This is my first post on the this forum! Yay!

So sorry to start things off so nooby, but I need help! I've read guides and guides, but I'm still confused about installing RAID 0 on Windows 7. I understand enabling and created the RAID configuration in the BIOS, but when you have to load the drivers from the floppy during Windows installation--that part just gets me. How would I track down these drivers for Windows 7? In the motherboard manual, it says to create the floppy from the CD that came with the motherboard, but obviously it wouldn't have Windows 7 drivers. Or does it not matter which operating system it is? Ahh, I'm so confused! Also, would I be able to boot the drivers from a USB device instead? And how would I go about doing this? Thanks so much guys!!

EDIT: Sorry, I forgot to say that I have an M2N-SLI Deluxe. I guess it says it in my sig. Oh well.

Thats alright, were here to help ya! Well you can put the drivers onto a USB and then use them for the RAID array. I would try these drivers for RAID: http://www.nforcershq.com/forum/opti...it-t70915.html Download the NF4-7 Performance Packs and extract the RAID drivers on to your USB. There is also a good guide here for RAID and W7: http://www.nforcershq.com/forum/wind...de-t72447.html

Yup...I was very happy with the upgrade! As far as you N2Gaming, you have two 9800 gt's in SLI they are close to the same performance as a single 260 16. I can't get Vantage to finish either...

Can you elaborate a bit more on this question? Are you trying to share the files in between both PC's?

Good luck
Yes, I have a HTPC in my living room and a desktop PC (from my sig) in my bedroom. The desktop PC is connected to my net provider, and I use it as a proxy server for the HTPC; I also watch HD TV broadcasts of various series and shows, as my cable quality is awful (Eastern Europe, *sigh*). So, I need to use a proxy program and be able to share (and stream) files from my Win 7 PC to my Xp64 HTPC - would that be possible? A new version of CCProxy should support Win 7, I suppose.

I also downloaded a Vista/Win 7 package from nVidia for motherboards with nForce 570 and 590 chipsets - this should replace for my mobo installation CD, right? And should enable the nVidia net controllers, or does Win 7 support them with internally built drivers?

Any other type of motherboard specific drivers I should be aware about and I should download?

Sorry, folks, the last OS I used before Xp was Windows 98 and that was... way back. I don't want to spend the holidays reinstalling OS's...

AtiViVo, what application are you using to view your HD TV Broadcasts? Good question above. It sort of makes me wonder how this would be possible. This is another reason why I need to get a HTPC up for testing this same thing.

Hopefully someone else can reply back with a good explanation.

Windows 7 may have the network adapter drivers already pre-installed. In regards to the Nvidia website question I believe that would be the correct chipset drivers to download.

Good luck

I did not have much luck when I tried to install 7 on one of my m2n32 boards but then again I was not patient w/the install. 7 can take a while to start copying files. Well at least mine did, even on my sig mobo. Any way what I really wanted to say was this. My sig mobo does not have 7 drivers yet on the Foxconn download sight and the vista drivers don't work w/my mobo. So I just used the native 7 drivers for nic and sound hardware. For the mobo I downloaded the drivers from Nvidia for the mobo drivers but I still don't think I have all the drivers that I need.

In any case I am able to play most of my games thus far. The only game I have problems w/is NFS HS. That game stutters or stops and starts while in motion. Makes it hard to be competative that way.

I have been running win 7 x64 for over a month now on my M2N32 board, and all runs great. Only driver I installed was the vista x64 driver for the Wi-Fi. Other than that was easy as 1-2-3....
