Where is "Onboard SATA-BOOTROM" option?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am in the process of trying to install Windows on a RAID setup. I am following the directions in the ASUS P5B Deluse User Guide. I made the floppy, then I follow the directions on Setting the RAID Item in BIOS. Step 5 is Select item "Onboard Serial-ATA BOOTROM" But I can't find this option anywhere. What am I doing wrong? Or does someone have easier directions to follow? Thanks

Am I supposed to do something with the floppy disc I created first?

I believe that the Bootrom is the SATA utility that shows up after POST.

You're done in the BIOS. Save/Exit and reboot.. After BIOS does it's thing, you'll see the SATA Bootrom pop up. Hit the key combination shown (likely <CTRL> + <I>) and set up your RAID array. Then, reboot again, and start Windows installation

Directly after Widows installation starts, you'll see a blue screen, with a message to hit F6 to load SCSI/RAID drivers. Do this immediately. It will seem nothing happens at first, but let Windows crunch around a bit and it will ask for the floppy. Happy installing

OK, this is what I did. But during the windows installation I get a BSOD. It may be because of the floppy I made. Jmicron instead of the Intel RAID? I am trying to get it figured out. I think or hope that Nasgul has me on the right track here:
