    I am not sure if what I am doing is even possible with this motherboard, but I had this set up correctly on my ABIT IC7-G. Please can someone see if I am going wrong somewhere, or it is impossible.

    What I want is a 500GB Sata Non-Raid (at least for now) to have OS (Vista Ultimate 32) installed on it. And a RAID 0 Volume of 2 320GB SATA Drives.

    After many days of hard work I got the motherboard installed and the OS installed on the 500GB drive. I plugged it into the IC7 controller working as normal IDE.

    Once I was happy with the installation, I plugged in the 2 320Gb Raided drives (RAID array was created in my previous mobo), set the BIOS SATA setting to RAID. Booted up and the ICH7 controller automatically recognised the RAID 0 Volume (Good new I thought ...). However, It blue screened as soon as it got to the green progress bar of Vista. I got a STOP:0X0000007B (0X829E7BA0, 0XC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000).

    In fact even after I took out the raided volume and just tried the non-Raid one. it seems that I can't boot into Windows unless it is in IDE mode. Obviously I thought about drivers. I downloaded the ICH7 drivers and Intel Matrix Storage drivers from both Intel site and from ASUS site. the Intel Chipset Drivers install ok, but even after trying both downloads everything was still the same. the Matrix ones did not work because it is IDE mode when I go into Windows.

    Have I missed anything obvious here. from the forums, it seems that people have manged to install Vista on a raided drive.

    Am I able to go from IDE mode to SATA having installed VISTA in IDE mode? Do I have to go through the whole install again in SATA mode and use the F6 drivers disk(I would really prefer not to ..).

    Any help would be appreciated.
