Heh. i get the feeling that someones gonna come in here and say "it's a pain". but... it doesn't have to be. For those of you who keep installing the SATA RAID drivers when it asks for drivers before installing windows, read more into it. it doesn't ask for SATA RAID drivers, only RAID. If you're using only one SATA drive, and your mobo has an on-board SATA controller, Check in your BIOS. I just installed mine, and there was a setting in my BIOS that could only be seen by doing that Ctrl + f1 thing (GigaByte 8IK1100 rev. 2.0 mobo) that automatically made a drive connected to a SATA channel as a RAID drive. all i did was disable that, and *poof*, Windows was able to install as if it were a normal old IDE drive. Surprisingly.... it also eliminated that Clicking noise i always heard when i would shut down my comp.
