I recently recieved my two raptors and was ready to set up my RAID 0. I have an 8rda3+ Epox motherboard that comes with a 2 SATA RAID set up. I was reading the booklet that came with the motherboard about setting it up and it sounded like I need to install Windows in order to be able to run the set up for the RAID. If I do this, then I will not be able to use my RAID 0 set up to boot from, correct? Am I merely misunderstanding something? There has to be a way for me to boot from a RAID array, I just need some help.
Disregard this topic. I got my questions answered here: http://forums.extremeoverclocking.com/showthread/t-61524.html

1. Look in your manual on how to enter the RAID BIOS
2. Configure the array into RAID0 or RAID1
4. Make sure you have a floppy drive installed.
3. Install the OS ,PRESS F6 at the first setup screen.
4. Next time have a mod delete this.
