Re: Installing 64bit Vista with SATA drives

The Vista Load Drivers option is more flexible than XP's F6 functionality. You can put the software on the hard drive, on a usb stick, or leave them on the cd and do a media swap. You will have an opportunity to point Setup to the location. My favorite is a usb stick. That way I don't have to figure out when it is OK swap back the media.

You do know that raid 0 has no redundency, lose one hd and you lose everything.

You first read the mobo manual to see whether you have to amend bios settings for raid,
You configure the raid in the raid bios, then install win

Yes I am aware of the drawback of RAID0 - I need all the speed I can get for HD video editing.

I am aware of the BIOS settings in relation to RAID it is more what to expect during installation, like I said, it's things like how do I format the drives and how do I install the SATA drivers when I only have one DVD/CD Drive and no floppy.

I would hope it all becomes obvious as you progress but, as I also said, I don't like surprises and in my experience Microsoft are good at throwing up surprises!!
