Installing on a Intel ICH8R SATA Raid

Hello everybody,

just tried to install on a Intel ICH 8R Sata Raid (Raid 1 - Gigabyte GAX58 Extreme Board- two 1000gb Samsung Disks). First OS ist XP, second should become opensuse.
All partitions were made using gparted. Install starts, but stops after a while, monitor turns black, nothing works. After rebooting the machine it says the raid need to be rebuilded.
Do I need a special driver and how could I install it?

Thanks for your help


Which part of the installation goes “black” - there are no drivers needed for the ICH8, I’ve put a few openSUSE 10.3/11.0/11.1’s on similar hardware.
