Exclamation gigabyte m-790 raid problem

Originally Posted by ecaffeine
I followed the instructions and set up my RAID 0 Array. It was very easy. Formatted etc... Then I reboot. Everything normal I have my Vista disk in ready to install. The RAID Option ROM v 3.0.1540.30 comes up as expected saying detecting drives, detects my RAID, lists the proper size and under status it says FUNCTIONAL with the _ (cursor thingy) blinking as if its thinking. I wait, and wait and wait AND IT JUST SITS THERE. I try restarting, same thing. I try hitting delete to go to bios so it opens the boot up details text (displays what is loading as it should) but before it can go in bios it has to get past the RAID Option ROM which again just sits there (No... pressing any key doesnt do anything - in fact I tried every key including ctrl-F). I took the vista dvd out - no change. I unplug the DVD drive all together - no change. I have set up many RAIDs before on Nvidia motherboards before with NVRaid and Silicon Image. I HAVE NEVER HAD TO GO THROUGH THOSE UTILITIES TO GET TO BIOS! I HAVE TO UNPLUG MY HARD DRIVES JUST TO GET TO BIOS! I DONT EVEN KNOW HOW TO DELETE THE ARRAY IF I WANTED TO. There must be something I'm missing because with nvraid and silicon image I could always press f3 or something while it was loading to edit the configurations. With this I can only edit the RAID config by pressing ctrl-f if I have RAID enabled and there are no arrays detected. What if I had a working array and wanted to add another hw raid? I am so lost.
i'm having the same issue as ecaffeine with a new gigabyte m-790, phenom x4 proc. I've checked into all the mobos i've seen referencing this problem - they are all am2/am2+ boards; most are amd 790gx nb / sb750 sb chipsets (mine, foxconn a7da-s, biostar tforce ta790gx), but the last poster in this thread is a 770 nb / sb700 chipsets.

has anyone found a solution? this is my first raid attempt and its driving me nuts.
