Problems installing Windows 10

I am having trouble installing Windows 10 on a hard drive in Bay 1. I have saved the Windows installation ISO on a USB drive. 

 

I am getting stuck at Windows Setup screen "where do you want to install windows".  I select the drive 2 (bay 1) but I am getting the error:

 

"We couldn't create a new partition or locate an existing one. For More information, see the Setup".

 

I set up the drive as RAID 0 by going into the array menu by pressing F5 (Dynamic Smart Array B120i Raid). I also tried loading the drivers on a separate USB drive where I save B120i and HP Dynamic Smart Array Accelerator Manager. 

 

What am I doing wrong? Are the drivers not compatible with Windows 10?

What driver are you using?

If you are going to boot from the front bays you could just use AHCI.

Are your USB drives in USB2 ports?

Do you have other drives in the system?

I am using Windows Server 2012 R2 drivers.

 

This is a bit of an experiment machine, I might end up installing a SSD in the optical drive bay and port. I could try the AHCI setting.

 

The drivers are in USB2 ports at the front. There are no other drivers, do the drivers need do be in a special folder? I have them in the root section of my USB flash drive.

You have to run the .exe file to expand it.

Downloaded the file under driver - storage, cp024079.exe, extracted the files, installed the driver but still getting the same error message.

I tried the AHCI settings with the same error message. There are no other drives apart from the one USB Drive with Windows 10 and One with the drivers.
