    I am using raid on the x79 ud7. On install where you would normally pick your array for install the box is empty. I had to load the smaller driver on top here with a usb, just hit the load drivers tab and direct it to the usb stick.

    Win 7 or Win XP? Which driver you installed? Are those drives in AHCI mode?

    try loading optimized defaults in the bios and just set intel sata3 ports to ahci mode and try installing win7,it should find all drivers for you? plug ssd into first sata 3 port

    disconnect all other drives apart from dvd rom drive,plug that into last sata2 port,then set disk priority as dvd rom first,ssd second,when windows has installed swap them so that dvd rom is second and ssd is first in the boot order

    Tryed every port on the motherboard.. with intel in ahci mode i find the bluray without having to add drivers but still dont find SSD.. Had no problems when i used SSD on my Gigabyte UD9 mobo.. So its something wrong with the UD7 or maybe corsair need a new firmware.. idk..
