alright, thanks... but now im having problems with the booting sequence. im using a MSI Neo2-FR motherboard. there is a mode where you can change the settings to either IDE, Raid or Achi. default settings was IDE and has no problems booting with the CD in drive. but when i switch to raid and place the first boot sequence to the CD, i was unable to do so. i entered the boot menu and all it showed up was the floppy and 2 hard disk.
Is your CD/DVD-ROM device connected to an Intel S-ATA port?
If yes, you should either connect it to another non-Intel S-ATA port (for example of JMicron, if available) or you have to replace your built-in CD/DVD-ROM device by an IDE connected one just while installing the OS. After having the OS up, you will be able to replace it by the S-ATA connected optical drive.

ok, i read that you have to create a raid array via ctrl + I? i've already create 1 at raid 0 and set my 1st boot sequence to the raid 0 volume. but the system says that please set a boot device etc. but i've already set the 1st boot sequence. what should i do?
There are 2 different boot order settings within the BIOS:
1. the "normal" boot device order (CD/DVD-ROM at first, RAID at second etc.) and
2. the HARD DISK BOOT PRIORITY settings (RAID disk at first, other non-Raid hdd's as second and third etc.).
