Dual RAID
The nForce4 chipset incorporated four Serial ATA and two parallel connectors with high performance RAID functions in RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 0+1 and JBOD. The Silicon Image controller provides another four Serial ATA connectors for RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 10, and RAID 5 functions. The A8N-SLI Deluxe is the ideal solution to enhance hard disk performance and data back up protection without the cost of add-on cards.

If you are NOT connecting more than one drive you do not need raid drivers at the F6 prompt.
JUst set BIOS to boot from CD as first boot device and follow the prompts to format the drive and install windows.
