Default Setting Up Windows XP With RAID

I have an EVGA 780i SLI Motherboard and 2 Raptors in RAID. However, with my previous motherboard there was a RAID utility that I could put on a floppy so when I install Windows it has no problem seeing the RAID. However with this motherboard I can not find anything like that, and when I go install Windows I get a BSOD and cannot install it. Anyone have this board and can tell me what to do, or does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,
Ted

Maybe the drivers are in the CD. So when you boot from Windows, and look at the bottom status bar when it's loading, it should say something like: 'Press XX to load RAID drivers' so you press it and load it from the CD.

Have you checked for drivers at the manufacturer's site?

Peter it is F6 to load 3rd party drivers.

Wow, I just rechecked EVGA's website. When it says to select the motherboard I chose my motherboard, but if I scrolled down there are drivers for RAID. My bad for missing that.
