Any way to install Vista64 on Raid0??? Pls help!
I have tried just about everything I could find online.
Simply cannot past the "no drives were found click load driver to provide a
mass storage driver" and "this computer's hardware may not support booting to
this disk" and so on.

I've tried the drivers from the MB CD, tried the ones on the FD, tried
drivers from AMD, ATI even Asus.... Nothing! Went though the BIOS settings
time and again... still a big nothing!

I'm hopelessly frustrated and this is my last attempt before I take the MB
back to the store and get lesser one that might work.

BTW I haven't changed anything on my system except the MB and SDRAM and it
was running Vista 64 fine off of a m2n sli deluxe (Nvidia 590SLI chipset)!!!

My current config is:
CPU AMD AM2 6000+
MB SAPPHIRE PC-AM2RD790
4 GB DDR2 SDRAM (800)
6 x WD 250GB SATA HDD SET UP IN 3 RAID0 ARRAYS
ALBATRON 8800 GTX
SB X-FI
DVDs FDD etc
Oh and lots of power (1200W)

Don't get stuck on the 3 Raid0 arrays. I've only set up the first one (boot)
so far so it doesn't confuse poor little Vista...

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

A lot of posters have advised to install running only 2 gig of RAM;
installing the rest later.

1. The information for the motherboard provided by the Sapphire web
site is rather meager.

2. If you want to use drivers from other sources, use the DFI drivers
for the LANPARTY UT 790FX-M2R motherboard, which the PC-AM2RD790
actually is
(http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/200..._pc-am2rd790/1).

3. You don't provide any specifics as to what you've done, but the
following should work:
a. Connect two drives to SATA1 and 2.
b. Enable OnChip SATA Controller.
c. Set OnChip SATA Type to RAID; save settings and reboot.
d. Configure the drives as RAID0 in the AMD RAID BIOS; save settings
and reboot.
e. Verify that the RAID0 drive appears in Hard Disk Boot Priority
under Advanced BIOS features.
f. Make sure Hard Disk appears as a Boot Device.

I had the same problem as you are experiencing.
1. It might be obvious, but be sure the drivers you are loading is on a
non raid configured drive.
2. During the install, Vista does not drill down to look for the
drivers. You will need to point to the directory the inf files are
located.
