I have a server with 2 mirrored drives. With Server 2003 os. I want to install Windows 7 on the box and remove the raid configuration. Only reason I want to remove the Raid config is that I can't find the Raid controller drivers (or the drivers I have found dont seem to work) for Win 7 install. I'm quite happy not bothering with the mirrored drives. I've gone into the Raid menu and set both disks to be non-raid and I can see in the Raid Disk Drive list that there is now nothing there.
But, when I try Win 7 installation dvd I still get a Load Drivers popup. If I click on repair I have no hard drives in the disk selection box. So I am assuming its still something to do with the raid existing??
I know the disks are fine because if i dont run the dvd I can boot up into Server 2003 with no problems and see both of the disks. The Raid controller is a JMicron controller by the way on an ABIT AB9 motherboard. I don't understand why the install needs the drivers if there are no Raid drives. Anyone any ideas?
