Win 7 should detect it and ask to load drivers. If you have on-board RAID, see if the manufacturer has an installer for the drivers for your RAID controller. Or, you might have a CD that lets you load the RAID drivers that came with your motherboard. Then, image the Win 7 install which would now have the RAID drivers installed (but not active) with Acronis, shutdown, install and setup your RAID configuration, then boot from the Acronis disc and restore the image to the RAID. I'm pretty sure that should work. You could always google the phrase "restore an image to raid" + 0 Votes not manually copying files jck Updated - 4 years ago If your RAID controller is on your motherboard, more than likely there is a "setup.exe" program on a CD that came with your motherboard that will have various installers. One of them should be meant to install the RAID drivers. Look for it, and if you find something to install the RAID drivers for your controller then do it. Usually, drivers can be loaded under an operating system and registered but no hardware required to utilize them. Then when hardware is detected, the appropriate driver is available and usable by said hardware.
