as far as I'm aware you can set up you bios to be able to read from USB thumb drive.

what's this to read from floppy? do I need a floppy drive O_O
I'm not 100% sure with your board, but it looks like you have two RAID chipsets. If you're loading Win7, you can load the drivers to a USB stick or directly from CD. The press F6 info is for WinXP loading of RAID drivers. First thing first though is you need to build the array. Look in your manaul for what buttons to press during bios boot to open up the RAID configuration window. Its sound complicated, but once someone shows you, its the same for all setups. You will want a RAID 0 (striping) setup. Try to go though the manaul first though. When I built my first RAID, I spend all night with XP trying to figure it out like 10 year ago, LOL

I just get the box that says they're not signed and that's it, can't you give me more info?
All you need to do is load the RAID drivers and ignore the signed drivers warning from Win7. It can't tell they're not signed, because most of the OS files are before the motherboard driver's came out. If they were signed, then the OS install would already know and have them loaded without needing you to add them.It will ask for 32 bit drivers also if you load 64 bit OS. Just have both ready for the OS to install and it should come out fine.

I'm quite certain Windows can find the driver from a USB thumb drive when prompted. I know the drivers can be installed from a disc.

I can't go further into detail with you since I'm not intimately familiar with Gigabyte BIOS. If you haven't paged through your mobo manual already, I suggest it. It may clear everything up for you. If you had an ASUS board we'd be done already

smash_mouth01: I've also successfully installed RAID drivers that Windows said were unsigned. As long as you're getting them from a reputable source like the mobo site I wouldn't worry.

OK, so you do have two RAID chips. The native AMD siuthbridge chipset supports RAID and the Gigabyte SATA2 chipset. I would use the AMD chipset. You will most like have to configure in the bios, the SATA as RAID. Disable the Gigabyte SATA2 chipset and then look for which buttons to press during boot up to enter RAID config setting screen. I'm looking through the manual right now to make sure though.

To use the AMD SMB750 chipset for RAID, you need to use only the blue SATA ports (page 28) itseems. Page 49, enable OnChip IDE channel, OnChip type=RAID. In those pages, it explains the bios settings for the RAID. You want RAID0.

sweet so to recap


set up raid like normal in BIOS

Ignore the signed driver warning

have both 32bit and 64 drivers (do 64 for 64 and 32 for 32, depending on OS)

Sort that out and should be working and sweet.


I just remember it not allowing me to install or it saying it couldn't find the driver I gave it.

Or it said it wasn't the right one. I can't remember exactly. but I do remember getting the drivers from the Gigabyte website. Ill have to try that tonight and run it bare for a while so i can come back here and ask more questions if I need to.

Oh and BTW +1

hi guys, I just finished setting the two hard drives to raid0. now I'm stuck on the windows 7 installation coz it can't detect the harddrives. to my understanding the amd drivers are needed here for raid0. im downloading it now hopefully it will work

ahh i cant get it to work. it does not recognize the amd drivers that I downloaded
