Yes check your motherboard cd to make disk for it.

No, the procedure for the X58 should be exactly the same as the 680i. There should be a setting to enable RAID in the onboard peripherals section of the BIOS. If it's anything like the eVGA X58, the controller defaults to IDE mode. You have to manually override it to either AHCI or RAID. Once you select RAID and save/reboot with that setting, the RAID controller BIOS will show up after POST. You then need to go into that part by hitting ctrl-I (IIRC) and setting up the desired RAID array from there. After rebooting again, start the Windows install procedure. Once you get to the point where you select the install drive, Windows should automatically detect the RAID array.

Maybe you don't, but both my Asus X58 motherboards P6T, Extreme 2, have make disk for raid 64 bit ICH10 drivers, on the motherboard cd's.
