    So what exactly are the steps to install Windows 8 Pro (fresh install)? I'm having lots of trouble with this. I have tried all different methods. No luck so far. Always get an error at the step of choosing drive to install the OS on. Different errors for different ways tried.

    Please help! Thanks,

    Jimmy

    You have to enter the RAIDR interface and setup your RAID-0 array. After that continue with normal installation of Windows. If you wish to install in UEFI mode, then after setiing up the RAID-0 array, switch the card to UEFI mode and proceed with the guide in my signature.

    Are you selecting "Windows Boot Manager" as your boot device?

    I can't see windows boot manager, the only boot device is my optical drive. I've followed all the guides and read all forums regarding this, my gut feeling is telling me the hardware is fine but something in the bios possibly isn't right or the firmware on the RAIDR may need updating ( i can't even seem to do this) I've secured erased the drive tho. Thanks Nodens
