    Urgent help with my new build please (RAID BSOD)

    I have put together my new PC, relevant spec as follows:

    Gigabyte GA P35C-DS3R
    Intel Core 2 Duo E6750
    2 x 250 Gb Samsung SP2504C SpinPoint (RAID)
    Samsung SH-S203B 20X DVD±RW/RAM

    I have plugged the drives in as follows:

    In the BIOS, I have set the following:

    BIOS > Integrated Peripherals > SATA RAID/AHCI Mode (Intel ICH9R Southbridge) > RAID
    BIOS > Integrated Peripherals > SATA Port0-3 Native Mode (Intel ICH9R Southbridge) > Enabled
    BIOS > Integrated Peripherals > Onboard SATA/IDE Device (GIGABYTE SATA2 Chip) > Disabled **Nothing plugged into it**

    I've then setup the RAID stripe in the Intel menu that appears.

    When I try to install XP, I press F6 to install the drivers (from Gigabyte's site) and select "Intel (R) ICH9 SATA RAID Controller (Desktop ICH9R)" as mentioned in the manual.

    XP setup continues to load a few files and the says "Setup is starting Windows" followed by a BSOD with the following code: "*** STOP: 0x0000007B....."

    I have tried the disabling RAID and everything works fine.
    I have tried the Gigabyte RAID controller (plugging the drives into the pink sockets instead) and everything works fine.

    So, what am I doing wrong?

    Do the hard drives have to be on a different controller to the DVD drive when using RAID?

    I'm at a loss, any help much appreciated.

    I'm not familiar with the layout of that board, but are you sure that you havent got the drives plugged into the jmicron sockets?

    I think the pink ones are the jmicron ones, the orange ones are the Intel ones.

    I've made some progress, seems the manual is wrong and the driver I need is not actually on the disk... Choosing the "Intel (R) ICH8R/ICH9R SATA RAID Controller" has potentially solved the problem.
