What would cause a Win7 BSOD when changing BIOS from IDE to RAID mode?

I'm trying to setup a raid 1 array for my storage drives but I'm having BSOD problems. They system works fine until I enable "RAID" mode in the bios. After that windows can no longer boot.

It's very possible that you don't have compatible drivers installed for your RAID controller. Check with the manufacturer for Windows 7 support.

"An incompatible RAID controller can cause this.

Load up BlueScreenView (with RAID off obviously, so you can boot) and check out what the STOP error was."

Windows 7 also has an automated boot repair function. Before attempting an in-place upgrade, try running the startup repair.
