So last night I wanted to do the "F6" Windows 7 install to install the ICH10R Raid drivers that i put on my flash drive.
Why? You only need to do that if you're installing Windows on your RAID. You're not doing that, right?
When we say NO PARTITIONS, are we talking about every drive except the OS drive? Doesn't the OS drive create a partion for the OS software?
Every drive needs ONE partition; this is the default. You can't do anything with a drive unless it has some sort of partitioning. When installing Windows the necessary primary partition will be created. Later, in Windows, you create partitions (preferably, only one for each physical disk or volume) for your uninitialized/unformatted drives.
NOT installing Windows on my raid so thanks for the clarification. I guess I'll just load windows then. I set up two Raid 0 volumnes previously.
Thanks for the partition info
Is the hack to elimanate the 100mb partition worth the hassle?

No, since it is not accessed in a normal situation.
