Disk Boot Failure Vista x64 Raid 0

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, have a problem with my Vista x64 Ultimate install. I loaded the drivers for raid and installed the os in raid 0. It's running fine, but i have to have the install cd in the dvd drive for it to run. I tried the recovery consol and used all of the bootrec.exe options, but im still getting the same thing. I have two seagate 250 gb drives in raid 0, and then a third seagate 300 gb drive as a backup drive. The thing is, i was running XP 32-bit in raid 0 with the two 250 gb, and i had a dual boot config with Ubuntu on the 300 GB drive. I formated the 300 gb drive, but did not get rid of the 5960 extended portion that Ubuntu installed on the 300 gb. Im not sure if that screwed with the install or what. Any suggestions, clues? Thanks,

GriFF

If you are installing Vista Ultimate X64, you would not need to load any drivers for Raid. And the dual boot fantasy with Linux will always bite you at some point some day.

Start over. Create the raid array in the bios and in the maintenance utility after the bios and start from scratch. Then boot your Vista install CD and tell it to delete the existing partition if there is one. Then create a partition the size you want. Then let it install Vista on it. No drivers need to be added.
