Thread Starter 
So I Installed two 40GB drives. A WD400 and a Seagate Baracuda both IDE. So I first set it to Spanning and it let me install windows Vista just fine. Then i go to Splitting and i Get an Error on the drive selection even after loading drivers from disk? IDK? first time need a walk through er something?

Have your tried not loading any raid drivers? Vista has most of them already.

Maybe your drives won't work together in Raid 0, since they are different drives.


Also, im not sure what you mean but its either one or the other.. If you selected spanning and installed vista that what your going to be using... Not sure what you mean by "Then I go to splitting". You can't change raid types without reformating the drives.

I reformated and changed to splitting because that would increase performance.

They must be the SAME drives.

It has to have the same amount of HDD size.

They can't be the same model if they don't have the same amount of space.

What raid are you actually on? or achieving to do? I really do not understand.

So your saying it works on spanning (Raid 1) but not on splitting (Raid 0)?

As far as I know raid 0 require's two drives with identical specs.

Maybe that could be of help to you.
Raid 0 you need the same exact drives.
