Nvidia do chipsets and just about every chipset controller today also has
a software raid mode for the BIOS to use which may look hardware but
rarely is. With PCI Express thats actually a good design as you have
independant links to each bus device.

Boot it in text mode ("linux text") for the install and you will see any
diagnostics that may get spewed out when it hangs.
