    Hello,

    Just trying to install Vista on a newly built system. I can't seem to get
    Vista to install on my SATAII hard Drives.

    The MB is a Gigabyte X38T-DQ6, first HDD is a 500Gb SATA II Western Digital,
    the next two drives are two RAIDed 1Tb Western Digital Drives.

    I get to the part where you choose the volume to install on. I install the
    Drivers for the RAID volumes (ICH9) as well as the single System HDD. Then I
    select the first volume to install on and then Vista Install cancels and says

    "Windows could not determine if this computer contains a valid system volume"

    I've disconnected the RAID drives, tried a non raid setup, it seems to come
    up with the same error each time. Some times it has even quit while I am
    trying to load the driver for the motherboard. So I'm not sure what the
    problem is.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Make sure the bios setup has a valid hard drive in the boot sequence.
