I have no luck at googling an answer.... so decided I'd get active in a forum!
Just dropped $1600 on this off newegg:
EVGA nForce 780i SLI 775 mobo
4x 1gig Corsair XMS DDR2800
2x 150gig WD Raptors
PC P&C 750watt psu.
EVGA 8800GT 512mb
Pretty standard stuff. I've made many computers from scratch but have never run into this problem.
I set up the sata drives in raid0 through the onboard controller, it shows the array correctly when booting(at 289gb) and is set to boot.
BIOS settings are bone stock, except for setting the correct ram timings and voltage.
And for the problem: I use a windows installer disc (Have tried the demonoid, xpBlack, and regular xpPro), mash f6 to select the raid drivers off a USB floppy drive (load both the raid and mass storage), and then it proceeds to load all the drivers and promptly bsod's. I even tried using the newest raid drivers off the evga website and still no luck. Anyone have any ideas?
EDIT: For testing purposes I took out the HDD's and booted an ubuntu liveCD no problem.
