    Fresh install of Win7 on 3 3TB in RAID 5 - BIOS settings?

    I appreciate the help.

    I'm running the Crosshair V Formula-Z and the BIOS loaded is newer than the User Guide so I'm a little lost here.

    I am attempting to run 3 WD-3TB drives in a RAID 5 configuration as the boot drive. I have the RAID driver on a USB drive to install during the OS install which will be Windows 7 Pro OEM on a disc. I have set the SATA ports 1-4 to RAID and ports 5,6 to IDE (instructed by the User Guide). What I am reading online is that they need to be set to AHCI, I think. Can anyone explain what the settings should be set to? Also, the User Guide mentions the AMD Option ROM utility. Following the instructions as written, I am unable to access it. Any ideas how I should set this up?
