How to install windows 7 in raid volume?

    Question

  • I have a msi GT683r

      The laptop came with default installed windows and following partition:
                                                   OS_Install ( C: ): larger than 500gb
                                                   Data ( D: ):368gb or so

     Then i partitioned my C: drive using a partition manager and renamed it.... so now my partition is :
                                                   DrGeneral( C ):199gb
                                                   Data ( D: ):368gb
                                                   local disk ( E: ):353 gb or roundabout

    Problem started like this:

       While  turning on my laptop i got curious and hit the F3 key..... this turned out to be recovery .... unfortunately i dont have any recovery files saved,....(Once i had made one...I saved it in E... and later i delete it)...

      Now my laptop does not Boot.... it says... MISSING OPERATING SYSTEM

    Then i decided to re-install windows...

    I formatted my current   C drive (i.e. DrGeneral (C)  )..... and now i'm unable to install windows because of RAID 0 .

    I dont know how to install windows... while i keep my HDD 500gb *2  in raid..

    Please help me install windows 7 in my c drive ....I want to keep two disks in raid... i dont want to lose my data...
    Please give me step by step process to install windows.7...

    This forum is for support for the Windows 8 Developer Preview, it is not
    the correct place for Windows 7 support. You can find Windows 7 forums

  • Hello Dr.General,

    Are you installing a dual boot? Or are you using a Virtual machine?
    What is the error message you get when you install Windows Developer Preview?

    Thanks,


    Marilyn
