So here's my dilemma: When I first built my PC everything went fine the first time except my friend went out and bought Vista but it was 32 not 64 so we returned it the next day and my mom went and bought it for me cause I had studying to get done. But she bought the upgrade for vista 32 and 64 and not the actual system software but I didn't realize it. So there I was installing it then all of a sudden of course it wouldn't go through so I called microsoft to help diagnose and eventually the guy was able to figure out that it was the upgrade. Being such a nice guy he was able to find me a way around it. Note that when I was in the BIOS stages I didn't realize I forgot to turn something on but then a few days ago I looked through it again and found out what it was so before I did that I went and backed up everything because I knew it would reset everything as well as delete everything on the drives. So remember, I didn't have the actual OS at the time. So after I set up the RAID 0 and it deleted everything I tried to install again with the methods that the Microsoft gave me but failed and was stuck on the beginning stages where it asks for the drivers and couldn't get past it as it said that no drivers could be found at all. So I figured okay, maybe I need to go out and buy the actual OS because maybe they just did me a favor and patched it. So I went out and bought Vista 64 bit OEM premium. now the screwed up thing was that when I was installing it I still had the same issue so I got curious. What if I turn of the RAID 0? And so I did and it installed without a glitch! So here I am stuck without RAID 0 after I went through all that. Windows won't run with RAID 0 which I need it to but it does work without RAID on. Thanks for the help!
