Hi I configured 2 SSD Pyro sata3 on my Gigabyte assassin G1 for Raid 0. The drives are regognized by the bios, but the problem I have is when installing windows-7 64 bits, it can't find the drivers on the motherboard CD for the Raid configuration. I searched the internet but can't find anything, and I'm still waiting for an answer from Gigabyte ..


tks for answers

That's entirely because of your motherboards 'RAID' controller. Windows doesnt know how to talk to it by default. This has nothing to do with your SSDs, as any drive would have this issue.

If you are using Intel Storage RAID, use this file: http://downloadmirror.intel.com/20216/eng/10.6_f6flpy-x64.zip

If you are using Marvell, use this file: http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList/Driver/mb_driver_marvell_bootdisk_6series_vista7.exe

Copy the contents onto a USB thumb drive. Boot and start installing windows 7. When windows 7 cannot detect the drive, there is an option to give it a driver. Connect the USB thumb drive and point windows to it. It should carry on normally from there.
