Just pull your RAID and boot from Windows 7 DVD.
When done with updates and all, pop the RAID back in.
AppleHFS driver in Windows Boot Camp 3.x that Apple Setup adds can't see or read your RAID and is known to be problematic at times.
You may have to set the default boot OS from Windows control panel (way way too many things are called "Boot Camp" that it gets confusing or seems like it, why not Windows Startup Disk? or "OS Manager" instead?).

Thank you for your quick answer. Please let me double check if I´ve understood everything ok.
1. Remove RAID disk.
2. Load Windows 7 and install it.
3. Load Snow Leopard disk in Windows 7 to load drivers.
4. How can I select between when turning on the computer?

Or, that there are Startup Disk control panels for both.Mac Pro 8800GT 10.6.4 /, Windows 7, Core i7 3.2GHz / GTX 260 / 10K VelociRaptors
Currently Being ModeratedSep 7, 2010 7:17 PM (in response to The hatter)What are you driving your RAID with? HW or sw? I have the Apple RAID card and it won't work in BootCamp - although I never used BootCamp simply opting to install Windows 7 natively.
I have seen an advert from CalDigit who claim to have a BootCamp compatible RAID card. Anyone have any mileage with it?
