I bought myself a new homebuilt pc and i got 2x seagate barracudas and a Asus P5Q Pro motherboard in hope of making a RAID 0 array. So i went to the BIOS as written in the manual and set storage from IDE to RAID. And then i pressed CTRL+I on bootup and created RAID 0 as it said in the manual. But now when i enter the windows CD it extracts some stuff and then says it cant install because it found no hard drives. Does anyone know what the problem is? Both disks are same and unpartitioned straight out of the box.

Need to press F6 when prompted and feed it a driver from a floppy disk before it'll see the drives in a RAID array.
Normally you can make one by booting off the motherboard CD and following the prompts as and when they occur.

Also, you should be aware that RAID 0 is not fault tolerant. If one drive goes bad you lose all your data and for a trivial speed gain.
