I have a msi GT683r

  The laptop came with default installed windows and following partition:
                                               OS_Install ( C: ): larger than 500gb
                                               Data ( D: ):368gb or so

 Then i partitioned my C: drive using a partition manager and renamed it.... so now my partition is :
                                               DrGeneral( C ):199gb
                                               Data ( D: ):368gb
                                               local disk ( E: ):353 gb or roundabout

Problem started like this:

   While  turning on my laptop i got curious and hit the F3 key..... this turned out to be recovery .... unfortunately i dont have any recovery files saved,....(Once i had made one...I saved it in E... and later i delete it)...

  Now my laptop does not Boot.... it says... MISSING OPERATING SYSTEM

Then i decided to re-install windows...

I formatted my current   C drive (i.e. DrGeneral (C)  )..... and now i'm unable to install windows because of RAID 0 .

I dont know how to install windows... while i keep my HDD 500gb *2  in raid..

Please help me install windows 7 in my c drive ....I want to keep two disks in raid... i dont want to lose my data...
Please give me step by step process to install windows.7...

This forum is for support for the Windows 8 Developer Preview, it is not

Hello Dr.General,

Are you installing a dual boot? Or are you using a Virtual machine?
What is the error message you get when you install Windows Developer Preview?

Thanks,
