Default wont partiton

Hi, I have a p5n32-sli deluxe and a pent d and im trying to install 2 maxtor sata drives with the onboard nvidia raid controller and when i go to install windows and go to partition the hdd it goes back to the screen without any partitions. I have updated my bios to the 0308. . And I have checked both hard drives and they both work and it will partiton a ide hard drive that I have. And even when i try to do just regular sata without raid it still wont let me partiton a single sata hard drive.
Any help would be much appreciated

you need to install the SATA and RAID drivers when prompted before the install starts. it will say something like press F6 to install third party RAID or SCSI drivers. put a floppy disk with your drivers on it in and install them
