Another Dual Boot Question: Vista, XP- RAID

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm currently running Vista Ultimate on my system. I have 2 HDD's running in RAID0.

I'd like to dual boot with XP, so I shrunk the partition and made 13GB partition to install XP onto.

I have an XP Pro CD and when I try to boot from CD, everything works fine, until it gets to "Setup is starting Windows...", then my computer will BSOD and has to be restarted.

I think it has to do with my SATA/RAID HDDs, but not sure how to fix this. I don't have a floppy drive to try the F6 Option of loading third party raid drivers...

I don't really want to take the time to learn how to slipstream the drivers into the install...

Anyone have a solution or link to a copy of WINDOWS XP PRO with RAID Drivers slipstreamed? (pm me the link--i have winxp license btw)

Thanks for your time and help!

Nah, won't work like that. XP must be installed first. I couldn't even do a repair of XP dual booting. The Vista boot manager( or whatever) would give me the same thing as you get.
Edit: You'd have to reformat, install XP first then Vista if you really wanted to.
