    Installing drivers before OS install? I know that's pretty basic, but that's all you should have to do(assuming you set RAID in BIOS).

    yea I did that but it gives me an error when I try to boot windows after the install... it tells me the drivers are missing from system32 (ie it gives me the cannot find blablabla.sys) even though I checked and its there, and even if I manually put it etc it still gives me the error

    huh, that's a weird one. Maybe hit up the ROG forums, see if they got a fix, or if you haven't you may also want to update the the latest BIOS and try a re-install with the most recent driver from Intel's site.

    yea it's weird, and I did the other 2 things so I guess I'll try the forums :p with my UD3R Gigabyte x58 it was plug and play, didn't even use the drivers or anything

    It SHOULD be that painless, for sure. I mean ,you need RAID drivers, for sure, because the board is much newer than Windows is, but other than that...

    I installed RAID onto my WD 500 GB drives no problem.
