raid 0 win xp

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi here's the problem:

new mb (msi mn32-sli del), using old hd to boot xp sp2.
xp disk is home edition update.
new sata2 raid0 drives (80 gb)

-i want to install xp on the raid and boot from it.
mb bios is happy - can see raid, and its healthy...

but - in windows I cant see my raid array on 'my computer'. In control panel i can see my raid disk. If i boot from the win XP disk i cant see my raid (despite loading the nvidia raid drivers when prompted)!

any ideas?

ps i plugged in my raid disks striaght from the box and bios was happy - should i have formatted them (or is that very old way of thinking?)
pps as for the slipstream disk thing - i cant find the sp2 pack file to copy!

Welcome to oc.net

Well If its not showing up it Either means your RAID array is not propertly installed or the OS simply isnt showing it but its fine. Im not to sure on this.

Have you tried reinstalling and using the Most up to date raid drivers.

Let me see if I get this straight...

When is it that you can't see the RAID array?

download that and slipstream the raid drivers into a winxp iso. My take on this is that when you try to install the raid drivers in windows xp setup, it either goes blah or says it installed them but didnt. I had similar problems like that too when I first got my RAID0 config. But I have reloaded 2 or 3 times now and I has worked flawlessly. Hope this helps
