    Sorry Mate, that is non support for the sata raid, what u can do is get a floppy and save some sata drivers, then somewhere below when installation has just began, u will see some options that allow u to install addition drivers, and it will ask u to press a button, (Sorry i have forgotten, i use linux more) if i remember correctly, its F6.then it will ask u to insert the floppy, if u have the correct drivers, with the inf,ini file in, u will have your system working, i have seen that before and that is how i over came it.That is more common on Compaq and its funny and stupid.
    All the best
