I will be installing RAID on my boot drive and will be using W7 HP. So I need to install the RAID driver before the OS Installation.
Do I need to install from a floppy(didn't plan on getting one) or will W7 HP give me the option of loading the RAID driver from a USB flash disk drive like Windows Vista does?
Do flash drives already come pre-formatted? Will the new motherboard instantly recognize it?
Separate question: This is for a new build with new hard drives. Will it be easy to upgrade from XP to W7?
Thanks in advance,
