AH HA, I really don't like Windows if I could find a good HTML editor for Ubuntu, windows would be gone forever. But when installing a RAID 0 on windows 7, remove the USB / or any flash drive to install the drivers after you have installed the drivers, wait a minute or two then hit next. Also make sure you have disconnected any additional SATA ports that are not in your RAID Configuration. WA FREAKING LA. Have you checked out the PCI-E SSD WOW 780 MB/sec and I have found a few that kick over GIG. WAHOO Have great day and I hope this helps.!!!!
