This is OCN, we don't settle for sacrificing anything.
There is always a solution to these things.
OP, a few questions.
What revision are the drives? 7200.11? .12?
What controller is your mobo using?
What are the specs of the RAID you're setting up? Level, stripe size, etc? Short stroking at all?
Are you sure the drives are in 100% good health (have you run the manufacturers tests)?
Is your copy of the windows install disc retail/oem, or a burned image?
Are you using any slipstreamed driver packs/service packs on your disc?
Are you overclocking currently at all?
