    No, but you most likely will need to use "Load driver" with your RAID drivers during the first part of installation for it to be able to see your RAID config for you to select to install to.

    Driver Location?


    Is the raid drivers located on the win disk? What is the name of the raid driver file?

    The procedure will be like this below, but for your RAID drivers instead. Your RAID drivers will depend on what brand and model number your RAID controller is.

    If it's Intel, then you can get the driver at the link below. Be sure to download the correct f6flpy-x86.zip (32-bit) or f6flpy-x64.zip (64-bit) as the Windows 8 you are installing.

    I'd wait until you find out the exact brand and model number of the RAID controller that the MSI laptop uses.

    Intel Mobile Express Chipset SATA RAID Controller


    Looking this bad boy over. MS's Junk evaluator list it at a 7.0. That is because of Graphics. Everything else is 7.8. To evaluate it must be plugged in to the charger. (Hmnn)
    The aforementioned driver link is the correct one. It is also the same ver already installed. ver -- 11.6.0.1030

    Got to make a decision now. Do I upgrade Win8 and wait for Win8.1. Or do I just wipe it and install Win7?

    If you were wanting to go with Windows 8 eventually, then I suppose you could go ahead and install it if you like, and just update it with 8.1 when it's available. You will still be able to customize Windows 8 to your liking until 8.1 is released.

    I'd say go with what you like though.
