So here's the issue.

I have been running the same rig for over a year now.  I know it works - the setup and everything.

I had Vista running originally, then for 4 months I have had Win Server 2008 running and now I'm trying to get Visa 64-bit on there.

I have the Striker Extreme board by Asus and two ideantical hard drives.

The Raid array has been set up for a long time in the Bios and the computer always finds it.

The raid controller on board is by nvidia - 680i board.

it took me a while to find some drivers for the raid so that Vista can instal.
When the hard drive listing comes up for vista instal - the array shows up as one hard drive - 298gb (which makes sense).  When I hit next, it says there is not enough infomation on the volume to continue (Makes sense - i need the drivers).

So i put in the flash drive with the drivers and got it going.  After install - everything was working fine for 20 minutes - I got some updates, basic driver instals for graphic card, itunes, ect..

Then I got a BSOD. Ever since then it comes up every time i restart the computer - it happens near the end of the Vista loading bar.

Tried the repair by the cd but that didn't work.  I tried reinstalling with different drivers for the raid array from nvidia but they all create the same problem only I can't even get the computer up and running after installing vista now - it just has the BSOD happen every time.

Can anyone point me to the correct raid drivers for my board?!?! This is pissing me off.  (Assuming it's the raid drivers that are doing this)
