GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3 AMD SATA AHCIRAID DRIVER
Best answer May 3,3: Some skill is necessary since it is a bit complicated.
The component to make this work is an extra harddrive not essential to setting up the RAID array. I assume that you have a bootable Windows 7 x64 install, if not, do a fresh install to Gigabyte GA-970A-D3 AMD SATA AHCIRAID single harddrive and follow these instructions: Install the harddrives to be used for the RAID array. Re-boot making sure you select the RAID array as boot device.
Add the original hard-drive to the RAID array if desired. This is not present for the x86 RAID driver install, which can be done with ease.

The Windows 7 x64 driver can be installed without a problem once Windows 7 x64 have been installed to a single hard-drive. Now you just have to clone this bootable hard-drive to the RAID array! I found a solution to this problem that will hopefully work for most.
Even starting with xp64 couldn't get Raid drivers to work properly with it either. Absolutely ridiculous this is the only way to do a fresh install onto a Raid. For me, all was fine once I removed the sata dvd from the mix. For some reason, the BIOS hung up in the handoff from, bios to OS even if the hard drive was set as the first boot device. The system is acting completely normal now. Good luck with your rig! Amazingly the same BSOD problem persists. What I cannot understand is that a previous build with Gigabyte GA-970A-D3 AMD SATA AHCIRAID same Gigabyte board had no problems and is running fine.
GAA-D3 "Loading Operating System" problem - Motherboards
I will be replacing the DVD writer since it is starting to make some noises. It does seem amazing that we need to go to go through these contorsions.
I will post back when I find the solution for this problem. If I only loaded the minimum drivers and avoided the Catalyst driver it seemed OK.
Otherwise it was unstable with frequent BSODs. Updating the BIOS and changing memory had no effect. I had to delete the partitions before Win 7 would load. It runs fine and I am happy with it. I still do not know why the other motherboards were having problems. The first one built is running fine.
Hanok Feb 7,2: It's worse that it provides no warning or indication that this might be the case. There's not that much Gigabyte GA-970A-D3 AMD SATA AHCIRAID over a text-based bios menu, and I wasted countless hours trying to figure it out. Note, I am referring to the Rev 3. Early revisions may use the old bios menu. The bios version was F8. Storage Interface: 6 x SATA 6Gb/s connectors supporting up to 6 SATA 6Gb/s devices - Support for RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID5, RAID 10 and. The A-D3 motherboard is designed to offer a stable, high-speed platform for for twice the data transfer rates of SATA Revision (3 Gbps) and RAID 0, 1.
