    Hello,

    I'm trying to install vista 64 on my computer having just bought the motherboard, ram and processor from my signature. Previously I was running Vista 32 (and I am still, thanks to this problem).

    When I try to install vista 64 only the 250GB hard drive is visible. I proceed to install the drivers from the motherboard installation disk but the x64 drivers are not detected (there is a folder on the disk labelled x64 raid drivers). The x86 raid driver in the x86 driver folder is detected so I use that instead. Vista now recognises my array. Great!

    Installation seems to go well but after the first reboot, the windows loading screen appears for a few seconds, then a BSOD flashes for half a second and the system reboots. Repeat ad-infinitum!

    I have tried removing one of the RAM sticks as I have heard there can be problems with Vista64 and 4gig of RAM but with no improvement.

    32 bit installs perfectly on the array.

    I'm at a loss. Can anyone suggest a solution or tell me where I can find RAID drivers for 64bit vista. The AMD website doesn't help. What drivers I can find are part of a .exe install and are only useful after the operating system is working.
