Help! Caviar Black 640GB Not recognized by OS Install

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Build:

MB ASUS M4A79XTD EVO 790X AM3 RT
VGA SAPPHIRE|100314SR HD6870 R
PSU CORSAIR|CMPSU-750TX 750W RT
CPU AMD|PH II X6 1090T 3.2G AM3 RT
2Gx2|GSKILL F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM
HD 640G|WD WD6401AALS

So i just built this today and I'm super psyched except for some reason the OS will not recognize my drives even though in BIOS they ARE recognized. Also, FYI I also set up the Caviar Black 640GB HDD's in RAID 0.
I think it's the drivers that the OS says it needs, but I can't find them anywhere.
Thanks all. Please help!

Ok, thanks to those who replied. So just to clarify to all I CAN'T install the OS because the OS says that it needs the drivers for the Hard drives. Could it be something simple in the BIOS?

Start > type 'create and format hard disk partitions' > enter > assign a drive letter to the array.

If that does not work then you need those RAID drivers.

If it is the raid driver then where do I get those from MoBo manufacturer or HDD manufacturer? MoBo right?

Thanks railfan. It turned out to be the drivers. I ended up going through this long process of initializing my usb so that it may be used to transfer the drivers while installing windows for raid. It wasn't fun, but it was a learning experience.
Thanks
