You need the SATA drivers provided by your motherboard manufacturer
on the CD that came with the system or that you download from the
ECS site because neither XP or Vista can install SATA drivers unless
you provide the OS with the drivers and tell it their location.
You must copy the drivers to a floppy or a CD and during the install
of Vista you'll be asked early on if you need to install these drivers,
select yes. Later during the install, you'll be asked for the drivers,
insert the CD (you can remove the Vista CD until you're asked for it
later) or floppy and point to the location and everything should work
Here's the ECS site, you need the Raid Controller Driver:
