Specs: Windows Vista
I am presently using windows vista 64bit os with an asus p5q3 deluxe mother board.I have 3 seagate 1.5TB hard drive which I attempted to set in a raid 5 configuration.I later found out that windows vista os would not support hard drives with 1TB or grater in a raid.Would windows 7 support hard drives with a capacity grater than 1TB in a raid 5 configuration?

Look at the 2 links below for information on any limits due to BIOS, OS or file system. Your problem may be related to using the 32 bit version of Vista.

If the raid array supports building that big and you don't use a mbr based it will work fine in vista or w7.
