You will need to download the drivers on to a floppy disk. When loading setup press F6 when it asks if you want to use third-party RAID controller.

You can get the drivers from the below link

If this doesn't work in Win 7 try installing it in XP mode and see if that does the trick

It seems that the card might be faulty. If there were incompatibility problems, they would normally show up under the operating system (Windows, Linux, etc), not during the booting process.
From your description, I suspect that the card's BIOS is corrupt. Try getting a replacement under warranty and see if the new card works normally (it should).

Server does not recognize 18.3 Ultra3(U160) SCSI Hard Drive


Right click on My Computer, go to Manage, then go to Disk Management. Newly installed drives don't show up formated, so you'll have to right-click on the new drive and format it. Then it should show up.

RAID 0 Array disappeared after reboot


I would try the hard drive on another sata controller/port to verify that the bad drive is in fact bad. If it is really bad, then no there is nothing you can do but replace the drive and recreate the array (losing all data!).

You can not 'recover' a failed RAID-0 array because there is no parity or mirror data on an extra disk like there is with the other RAID modes. This is why people recommend against using RAID-0 for important data (unless you take frequent backups): RAID-0 actually increases your likelihood of losing your data. Statistically speaking, you are multiply the failure rates of each individual drive together.
